Before you come in and experience it for yourself, take the time to learn a bit about two of our drink specialties.


Merry Christmas


It's that time of year again. When our homes and businesses sparkle with bright lights and Christmas spirit. When friends, family, and colleagues tuck in from the cold with warm beverages and good company.

At the James Joyce Irish pub, seasonal delights are aplenty. We are proud every year to offer our downtown nook to many happy celebrations.

Celebrate with us this Christmas!

Tasteful History


The Currans are the Irish-born proprietors of the James Joyce Irish Pub and Restaurant in downtown Calgary. Anne and Gerard Curran came to Canada in 1979. In 1991 Gerard began dreaming of opening up an authentic Irish Pub in Canada and by 1997 he was able to put his concept to work.
