D'arcy McGee's Irish Pub first opened its doors in August of 1996 and is located one block south of Parliament Hill and directly across from the War Memorial and NAC. Thomas Darcy McGee was a prominent politician and a Father of Confederation known for his stirring speeches that helped unite the fractured new country called Canada. He was assassinated on April 7th 1868 in front of his Sparks Street boarding house only blocks from where the Pub now stands. The Pub was designed in Dublin, constructed in Wexford, shipped to Canada and reassembled in the Nation's Capital.
