If you're looking for a "real" Irish pub and not one of those fake plastic Paddy nonsense bars then this is the bar for you. It's a no nonsense bar with a good selection of beers, decent choice of food and excellent service. The decor...More

Nice place for a drink and Irish music. Apparently the best Guinness in town but I could not tell the difference from any other guinness I had any other place in canada.

McVeigh's looks sketchy from the outside but is your traditional Irish pub on the inside. Great place to grab a drink with friends after work. Staff are friendly and attentive.

I will say the meal I ordered was decent pub food. Compliments to the cook. Bartender took my drink and food order and served. It was the coldest treatment and service ever for me in an eating or drinking establishment of any kind. So this...More

At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University
Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in
