Description: Our story begins in Ireland. Located in the heart of the Rocky Mountains, St. James's Gate, established in 1996, was built and manufactured in Dublin, Ireland. The authenticity of the imported Irish woodwork and fantastic artifacts make St. James Gate one of the premier Irish pubs in the world. The Gate has a warm friendly atmosphere that makes you feel instantly at home. Rub shoulders with local residents and tourists from around the world. The bartenders are friendly and prepare the drinks with care and consideration and the staff proves just what a capable & fun group of servers is worth. It's everything an Irish Pub should be.

We stopped in during a snowy day in town. We were quite pleased with the atmosphere. We were sat next to the fire place in the back and had a great wait service. And we were quite pleased with our dishes - fish and chips and the mac and cheese with chicken. There were so many restaurants to try in Alberta but we were hoping to get to this one again before we left but weren't able to. Definitely pop in for a nice, cozy atmosphere and good food.

After a great experience in the Dublin Irtish pub in Whistler, we were eager to try another. We were disappointed. I had the Irish fry up breakfast. The eggs were so salty I could not eat them. The back was greatly overcooked and the toast was rtather underdone. The deep fried tater tots were good, sad to say. My wife's Guinnes pie was long on gravy and short on meat. All pubs are NOT equal.

A good place for lunch. Interesting menu, good seating, good music and service.

I had mussels and my cousin had the cob. Good wine and choice of cocktails and coffees.

Wide range of customers.

We ate dinner here twice while on vacation in Banff. Both times we ordered the fish and chips as we enjoyed it so much the first evening. The portions were smaller on the second evening and the chips not very hot. We still enjoyed our meals. The servers were friendly and efficient and the atmosphere were very good. Prices also very good for Banff.
