The Ceili Cottage is shutting down
In business for a decade, the pub was known for masterfully shucked oysters and an amazing patio that even hosted a yurt in winter at one time.
Though the last service will be on October 27, owner Patrick McMurray says this is in no way the end for him.
Hello all, it’s a new chapter in the story of The Ceili Cottage. After 10 years we are closing the doors at 1301 Queen St East. Last day of service will be Saturday October 27, 2018. Come on past for a last look at “The Auld Place”, last TradSession will be Tuesday 23rd - Pints, Oysters, great food and StickyToffee Pudding til Saturday. We are looking for new digs, and opportunities to bring Ceili to new locations. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
The cost of the lease and higher business taxes are the reason behind the closure, but it’s possible McMurray will open a new business somewhere just down the road.
However, he’s also not ruling out the west side.
All in all, this big decision is the beloved bar owner’s personal choice, and clears the way for bigger and better things to come.
Pub-goers of Toronto, don’t despair: hopefully we won’t have to go without seeing McMurray’s smiling face behind a bar for long.
