The Seanachie, located in what was formerly Jack Astors in Signal Hill, is one of the many Irish pubs on the Calgary scene these days, but it seems to be one of the more authentic ones. As part of the same group that owns other Irish pubs like Limericks and the Kilkenny, the Seanachie had its success—and menu—planned out for it before it opened. But? It works.
Eating in Style
One can’t help but feel like they’ve travelled back a few years when they enter the front doors—the dark wood furnishings, panels and railings are as rich as a pint of Guinness, and the stained-glass windows are reminiscent of days gone by, when décor was carefully crafted to reflect tradition. Flat screen TVs over the bar and scattered throughout give sports fans something to cheer about, and the fireplace provides an ideal spot to warm up when it’s cold out.
Luck O’ the Irish
The menu is a crowd-pleaser, with traditional favourites like Yorkshire pudding, Irish stew and the ploughman’s lunch, but there are a selection of North American staples too, including salads, wraps and pizza. The appetizer menu is varied and suited to a group of friends—Globally-influenced items like baked brie with mango and fresh Atlantic mussels will appeal to the most discerning of palates. The drink menu is almost as long as the food menu, and includes a number of classic Irish brews like Guinness and Kilkenny fresh from the tap. Prices are on the steep side, but still reasonable.
