Perfect atmosphere, great beer selection. Live music too. I had the fish and chips and loved it. Friendly service. Very busy. After 5 you could find a long line at the entrance. I definitely recommend this restaurant.

From a write-up we saw, the pub itself was transferred over from Ireland. The inside is captivating, and the Guinness on tap tops it all off.

The answer is yes! We had a table with a great view of Banff Street. Very nice relaxing atmosphere with authentic Irish touch. Down to earth people - they stood out - in every way. A must for me.

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.
