Any time I'm in Vancouver, I always go here! The food is excellent and most off the Guinness is top notch! Staff are friendly and a good spot to meet Irish people!

I love Irish pubs and visit as many as I can. This one has an authentic feel to it. Not a touristy, Dublin downtown feel, but authentic as in a country town working class pub. Friendly staff and patrons. Not a large place, but easy...More

Wow amazing poutine... we are from Quebec and we agree it was one of the best bar poutine we had. And because of the long waiting time to be served the barmaid served us 2 shot of Jameson. Perfect at all points!

My friend and I wandered in here by chance. Great fun, real Irish feel, welcoming atmosphere, especially from one of the lads. A lot of Irish accents made you forget for a while you were still in Vancouver! Loved it so much, we went back...More

Granville Street
Granville Street spans many, multiple city blocks and
has become so fastidiously known for its nightclubs
and watering holes that it's fondly nicknamed the
city's 'Entertainment District.' Friday and Saturday
nights are the most popular and lively, with young
revelers taking to the streets in droves and keeping
the party going until late. Granville Street, being
mostly open to pedestrian-only traffic, has a healthy

I am not an owner of this pub but I did notice that the staff we spoke to were from Ireland. I would recommend contacting the pub directly who could also advise you on if your work visa work is appropriate.
