One of the many Irish pubs the city has to offer. However, this is an Irish pub with a touch of modern days. There are 3 floors: the bottom and middle floors are pretty authentic-looking Irish pubs; the third floor is more of a mix between the old and new – old-style décor, but modern day music. All in all, this place offers a good mix of chillin’ and dancin’ (they also serve up some mean burgers)… Like Cheers, Wednesdays is ladies night – the crowed is more local though. Well you do the math – free drinks for the ladies + chill atmosphere + decent music = great times for every one!
Music Disco/Top 40/Irish folk Hotness factor 6 / 10
Prices Average Chill Factor 7 / 10
Best Days Wednesday Party Factor 7 / 10
Pictures Dress Code None

Bouncers kicked me out for no reason .. Threw me into the parking lot because he assumed I threw a bottle ... Make you assumptions directly next time because I had three beers tonight and this happened to me .. Thanks for a good time bouncers think they are super heroes don't waste your time in this shit hole unless you feel like getting treated like a peasant . Will never come back

I gave it a one, since there wasnt a ZERO option. Never go to Mckibbins in pointe-claire. The female older staff are awful. One lady is a liar and charge me 2 different prices for the same drink. Ive been there several times now and Ive never had a chance to enjoy myself. Its over crowded, dirty and really bitchy staff. Although the bouncers are nice. I wish I could say something nice about mckibbins pointe claire but the best part of my night each time was leaving. Ive alwasy been respectful and nice to the staff but nothing seems to work with those bitches. I would highly recommend not going there, besides its overpriced. Your better off at cages aux sports bar or thursdays. The same crowd just a thousand times more polite and honest.

Yo, we were at mckibbins tonight and it was pretty packed, but nobody was down with the new music. When the DJ played older stuff the dancefloor was packed, when he dropped some sick new tunes, everyone left. I guess it takes time to get used to good new music, but damn Mckibbins kiddies get with the times!

We just got back from Mckibbins tonight and I must say that it is one of the best parties I've been to in my life. Open bar all night on Wednesday nights and lots of girls makes for a great night.

The only problem with McKibbins is that the girls bathroom is all the way upstairs and it was pretty packed last weekend so it took a long time to get a drink. Other than that we had a blast, the music was really good upstairs and I found the people were very friendly contrary to what the last person said.

This pub is terrible. The sound system screeches, and the men are dirty and poor (not to mention really physically unattractive). They say the atmosphere is friendly, but I'd like to see how friendly some of these people are when they aren't drinking (somehow I don't think being sober happens quite often for some). At least beer goggles make the girls in there look better...(just when you thought all women in Montreal looked good...) Where did they find these people??...the...ugh....COUNTRY??

The music upstairs is hip hop/top 40 and house while there are bands downstairs that play rock. I'd put the hotness factor up to about 7.5 and the party factor up to 8.5. It's hit or miss, it can be a 10 one night and a 5 the next. The chill factor downstairs would be high too, like a 9, but not upstairs.

I've been in Cork, Ireland for the last year.It's nice to find a decent Irish pub that can somewhat remind me of my good times in Ireland.
