“Cape Breton’s Celtic spirit has found itself a new hearth at which to enjoy the sea salt air. Upon setting foot in the newly renovated Governors one finds oneself in a warm, welcoming traditional style pub decorated in warm tones and hard woods. A distinctively Celtic ambiance provides a unique and unforgettable experience like that of no other on the island. With two large patios over looking Sydney Harbour – there is no question that the patio is one of the best seats in the house, followed closely by the tables next to the dual sided fireplace and intimate alcoves placed throughout the building. The bar, fitted with the largest imported beer selection on tap in Cape Breton Island, also provides a safe haven for the weary traveler, the local regular and the single malt connoisseur. Whether passing through, or meeting up with the “bi’s” for the weekly outing – Governors is sure to be a desired destination.”
