A plane ticket to Ireland is prohibitively expensive, and the flight attendant won’t let you drink, sing, or knit her dog an Aran sweater. Fast forward to the fun part of visiting Ireland with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of pub fare and drinks at the Irish Embassy Pub & Grill, located in the Financial District.

The Irish Embassy welcomes brew-soaked sojourners with an open-armed dinner menu of hearty and homemade grub. Starters include Irish poutine ($7, topped with garlic mayo and shredded cheddar cheese) and bacon-wrapped scallops ($11), while entrees such as a lamb-based Irish stew ($15) and a chicken curry ($16) successfully deplete the strength of farm-animal militias. Lunch and late night menus offer meals for midday dreamers and midnight ramblers, and Irish Embassy's weekend brunch brings together a bounty of breakfast favourites. In addition to eggs benedict ($11) and homemade pancakes ($9), the eatery's Irish breakfast ($12) nourishes weary clover pickers with scrambled eggs, pork sausages, back bacon, black pudding, grilled tomato, baked beans, home fries, and toast. Wash down brunch eats with an Irish coffee ($5.95), fresh orange juice ($3.50), or any of the many beers on tap before heading to your weekly break-dancing class.

Housed in a former bank building constructed in 1873, Irish Embassy's elegant mahogany interiors and leather furniture successfully draw attention from the gangs of ghost bank tellers sitting at the bar. Watch sports on the bar's four 50-inch plasma TVs, or ameliorate the company of long-avoided former roommates with a hospitable pint and plate from Irish Embassy.

Reviews

Food blog The Waffle loved brunch at Irish Embassy. Eighty-five per cent of Urbanspooners like it, and Yelpers give a three-star average.

  • The Kilkenny battered fish were flaky, steamy, chunky. All around well done. The homemade tartar sauce that came with it was an excellent complement to the deep fried delicacy. – The Waffle
  • Ideal location for the Bay St types heading home after work! Also a GREAT spot for Brunch on the weekend! Food is delicious and the servers are friendly and helpful. – Lash, Urbanspoon

Irish Embassy Pub and Grill

After walking into Irish Embassy Pub and Grill, which is housed in a building dating back to 1873, patrons are surrounded by mahogany-panelled walls, traditional vaulted ceilings, and Doric-style columns. Wall-mounted TVs show sports, and the taps at a dark wood bar dispense Irish brews and long slips of paper with the poetry of Yeats printed on them. Patrons huddle around wooden tables for brunch, lunch, dinner, and late-night dishes rich with Irish influence, such as shepherd's pie and Kilkenny-battered fish 'n' chips. While eating and drinking, patrons can enjoy the sounds of Irish music and gaze upon the four 50-inch plasma TVs that televise all Maple Leafs and Raptors games.
