Pubs in Cork City
Cork has so much to offer on all fronts but authentic Irish pubs are definitely one that stands out. You’ll find delicious food, a wide selection of drinks, live music and great craic. Here are just some of the recommended pubs within walking distance of our Cork City centre hotel.
Our Sister Bar - Cask
In early 2016, our sister bar Cask threw open their doors. Located across our courtyard in yet another gorgeous renovated Victorian building, this bar really stands out from the crowd with its stunning interiors, unique and ever-changing cocktail menus and delicious food.
Dan Lowry's Tavern
The Shelbourne Bar
8 Coburg Street, Cork
Sin É “That’s it” takes is name from the funeral parlour next door. This welcoming bar first opened in 1889 and has been a popular spot for live music ever since.
Mutton Lane, Cork
South Main Street, Cork
Located near the old Beamish Brewery, who had the pub custom-built, The Oval is still in its original condition and is the only pub included on the list of Cork’s most important 20th-century buildings. Well known in the local area for its live music and great atmosphere, this pub is particularly busy on Friday & Saturdays.
Crane Lane Theatre
Phoenix Street, Cork
One of the most popular live music venues in Cork, Crane Lane Theatre features original décor from the 1920’s, 30’s & 40’s. The pub was built with many uses in mind; it was trying to be a local pub, stylish ballroom and burlesque cabaret. The Crane Lane Theatre is an exceptional unique venue with 3 bars, a beer garden, smoking area and it serves its very own brewed stout.
St. Peter’s Market, Cornmarket St
The most elegant bar in Cork City (and most likely Ireland), this stunning building once housed the St. Peter’s food market along the city’s quays. The Bodega boasts original works from some of Ireland’s most well-known painters including JB Yeats. A perfect spot for a relaxing lunch during the day and a great venue at night.
The Vicarstown Inn
North Main Street, Cork
Following the old Irish tradition of pubs being named after their owner’s birthplace so was The Vicarstown Inn named. This pub looks very traditional on the outside but inside has a modern twist. A perfect spot for traditional music, at night you’ll find a live DJ and during the summer a packed beer garden.

7 Pembroke Street, Cork
