This place is awesome! I have had breakfast, lunch and dinner there. Very busy in the evenings, but super fun. Will definitely return.

We stayed in the attached hotel and had breakfast in the pub. It wasn't the best breakfast I ever had. I would suggest to look for a nice breakfast in the city... that's what we did on day two.

I have only been in Canada less than 4 hours and my friend takes me for a few drinks at Doolin's. We scored happy hour prices which was a bonus. I introduced her to Jamie and ginger (Jameson and ginger ale) which she loved. Also grabbed a pint of Harp beer and she grabbed a pint of Magnum Cider. It... More

My husband and I were on vacation in Vancouver and we had taken the Skytrain from Burnaby to Vancouver and as it was a beautiful sunny day, we decided to walk down Granville to get to Granville Island. We stopped at Doolins Irish Pub along the way for lunch (we had eaten here about 4 years ago when we had... More

Doolin’s is what you would expect from an irish pub: Low-key, very casual, dark wood furniture, and generally unpretentious from what I saw. It’s located right on Granville Street, so it’s very accessible in downtown, and not far from skytrain stations. Our server was attentive and friendly, and service was pretty quick. There’s a place to sit by the bar... More

Great atmosphere and clientele. Went here on a Sunday for beers prior to a Whitecaps game to find out what the Southsiders was about. Oh my goodness what a great group of people who were very welcoming and lots of fun. We will definitely go back to Doolins to try the food and taps on a regular day as the... More

Liked the ambiance and the long list of beers on tap including my fav MAGNERS!!! I'll surely visit this place again for what's on the menu and how it made me feel as if I'm in my comfort zone. Just 1 NEGATIVE though - the servers don't exude any warmth - no smile or a small chat, not even an... More

As soon as you walk in, you get hit with a feeling of authenticity and coziness, though this pub has lots of space, and a wrap-around bar. Tons of seating upstairs, and there's another whole club-like environment downstairs if that's more your thing. There are plenty of televisions, plenty of bar seating, plenty of tables. The food here has been... More

Our Vancouver trip as we were staying at the Chateau Granville, my wife and I decided to try out the Doolins Irish Pub for our meals. looking at Tripadvisor reviews this seemed to fill our needs. Very close to our hotel and good solid wholesome food. For most of our stay in Vancouver we went virtually every night. My wife... More

Staying in Granville Street

Neighbourhood Profile
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 social life along its main thoroughfares, even outside of its cafes and pubs, spilling onto the sidewalks. The locals are chatty, the shops at its expansive Pacific Centre Mall are trendy, and the whole area seems to be on a sugar rush: in a good way. Exuberance and camaraderie classify this neighbourhood.
