Every city needs a great Irish bar, and The Irish Times is bringing a little bit of the Emerald Isle to Melbourne’s CBD. Spread over two floors, whether it's to catch some live music, watch some sports, or indulge in some hearty, home-style Irish cuisine, The Irish Times is a favourite among Melbourne locals and tourists alike, located on Little Collins Street. We recommend tucking into some traditional Irish stew or The Irish Times’ famous homemade beef & guinness pie (sirloin chunks slow-cooked with thyme, carrots, onions, and celery in Guinness stout, topped with mashed potato and cheddar cheese), paired with a pint or two from the lengthy list of imported beers. To guarantee a table, making a reservation in advance is recommended.
There were no issues with the booking. The staff were Friendly, the shepherds pie was very tasty. Great place to go for lunch on cold winters day.
Great food and good atmosphere, we were asked to move tables to make way for a bigger group and were all given free drinks and buffalo wings!
Very well organised, friendly customer service and they have a great food and drinks menu. We will be back for sure. Great burgers and bangers and mash!
Great ambiance , staff very pleasant and most helpful, we all enjoyed the delicious food, Guinness pie was excellent. We parked easily in Queen st.
We had a great time at this traditional small Irish pub. Quite noisy and service a bit slow but the food was delicious! I had the mushroom burger. Beautiful!!! & their hot chips are to die for.
We really enjoyed our Christmas lunch at the Irish Times we attended the 2 o'clock sitting. Although it was very busy the service and food were both great.
Great selection of food and friendly staff who really impressed me with their service. My only complaint was with the chewy meat in the beef and Guinness pie!
Had the Tower Burger .. the beef patty was a tad cold which was really disappointing .. apart from that all good .. the chips were bang on
