Our Family

Chris, Peter, Mike, Gerard, and Paddy Mahony make up the management team at Mahony and Sons. They are five of the eleven children of Peter and Leonie Mahony who moved to Vancouver in the early seventies. This large family has its roots in Cork, Ireland, from where their great great great grandfather Barney was transported to Australia in 1832 for pick-pockteting. It’s here that the Mahony family first documents its involvement in the pub business, evidence that hospitality runs in the Mahony clan blood. Shaped by their ancestry and strong family values, the Mahonys are proud to continue the family tradition and have created an exceptional dining and social experience inspired by traditional Irish public houses.

Mahony & Sons offers an authentic experience blending the traditional and contemporary Irish influences with thoughtfully selected materials inspired by age-old taverns in Ireland. The restaurants feature embellished hardwood mouldings, inlaid stone, celtic artwork, and genuine bric-a-brac. The ceilings are unique, incorporating striking Celtic artwork painted by Irish artists, and the traditional warm Irish feel is reinforced by double sided fireplaces that face into the restaurants and out onto the large patios.
