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.

Due to the situation we now find ourselves in I thought the staff were very mindful and understanding of everyone's safety. The food was great, the drinks were cold and the staff were friendly. Can't ask for more than that. Cheers.
Excellent, comfortable, great service, great food, first class, worth a visit
We had the Irish Times platter and the full rack of pork ribs. The servings were huge, and sufficient to feed a party of 5. The potato skins was really good. Whilst the ribs fell off the bones, it was lacking in taste. Cleanliness could be improved - we were given five small plates to share the food and they were all dirty.
