Steven Gallagher
City Champion

Natural beauty and a welcoming small-town feel are what drew restauranteur Steven Gallagher to the city of Moncton. “I fell in love with the city and fell in love with its people.” That’s why Steven’s popular downtown pub, The Old Triangle Irish Alehouse, lives by the saying: “There are no strangers at the pub, just friends that haven’t met.”

“When people talk about Moncton, they talk about how friendly it is and how warm and funny the people are. That warmth and friendliness is genuine and sincere.”

Why Moncton’s So Magnetic

5 Tips to Make the Most of All Moncton Has to Offer


From gastro pub fare to fresh seafood to international offerings, Moncton’s culinary scene is earning some serious cred. “You’ll want to try our fine dining. We have some of the best restaurants in Atlantic Canada right downtown.”


Savour your time in the city. “Slow everything down, take your time, meet people, explore places, and get off the beaten path.” Head to a local winery to meet the friendly owners, connect with the city’s cycling community, or hit up a farmers' market. Good conversation guaranteed.


More of an adrenaline junkie? We’ve got you covered. Head to the treetops for an aerial adventure or, if you’re ready to really (like really, really) feel the rush, suit up for some skydiving just 30 minutes outside of Moncton.


One absolute must-do is a road trip down to The Hopewell Rocks and the Bay of Fundy, which Steven considers a hidden gem. “You’ll be amazed at the sheer beauty and rugged grace of the place.”


Coming to the city with family in tow? Get wet and go wild at Atlantic Canada’s largest water park or let your favourite animal-loving teen have an unforgettable experience being a zookeeper for a week.
