Earlier this year, featured a St. Patrick’s Day Countdown where we wrote about 17 of the best Irish bars in the land.

Appearing on Day 9 of our countdown was O’Byrne’s Irish Pub in Edmonton. Between sips of Guinness, contributor Karen Evenden wrote that it comes as no surprise that the average customer at O’Byrne’s is anything but average. With an age range of 19-80, on a typical evening the pub attracts a variety of clientele.

Evenden: “Expect to enjoy a pint with firemen who often host fundraisers at O’Byrne’s Irish Pub. It’s also not uncommon to see one or two players from the Edmonton Oilers, lawyers, doctors, students, the local knitting club, or perhaps even a well-known actor from the TV show “Will and Grace” (Eric McCormack made headlines when he visited the bar two years ago).

The pub may be 2,000 kilometres (or 1,250 miles) from Galway, but O’Byrne’s offers hearty Irish meals, live Celtic music every Tuesday and a cozy homely atmosphere jam-packed with Irish trinkets and souvenirs.
