About The Irish Times

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.

Friendly service and good, hearty Irish food. Generous portions. If you choose the ribs, beware!! Even the half portion had to be shared. Can’t beat it!!

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!

Nice pub and nice food, especially for someone partial to the odd Kilkenny! Had the fish and chips and very happy to have done so.
