Top ten Irish pubs you must visit in Cork City
Here are the ten best places to have a drink during your visit Southside
A little expensive, but a good place for a drink in that part of down.
An Brog, Oliver Plunkett Street
This is THE college pub in Cork City, the pub is populated almost exclusively by UCC students. Owing to its popularity with the college crowd, the pub offers great deals on pints and shots. Pints are often less than €3 before 10pm.
Service can be somewhat slow, but it’s an expected by-product of the bar’s popularity.
Quiz nights for college societies are often put on mid-week, which are probably best avoided unless you’re part of that society are truly care what country Montevideo is the capital of. However, most nights provide great drinks at a great price.
The Pavillion, Carey’s Lane
One of Cork’s most buzzing nightlife venues, known locally as “The Pav”, it’s hard to find fault with this venue. A spacious drinking area is complemented by an upstairs stage, and it’s a great place to go for a drink and a gig. A complete gig and events listing is posted on their website.
The Angler’s Rest, Carrigrohane
Cork’s most popular riverside beer-garden, the pub is located in the countryside not far from Cork City.
The availability of private function rooms makes this a popular corporate-lunch venue, but the place’s main function is as a favorite watering-hole and a popular venue for 21st and 18th birthday parties. A full dinner menu throughout the day makes this a good place for a bit of grub along with your pint as well.
Suas, North Main Street
Coming from the Irish word for ‘up’, Suas is one of the few pubs in the city with a roof-top beer garden from where patrons can look over the beautiful Cork skyline.
Drinks can be a little pricey, cocktails even more so, but it’s a popular place with young Corkonians, and is a necessary stop along the way to Patrick Street on your drinking odyssey around Cork.
Long Island, Washington Street
Without a doubt the best cocktail bar in the city, the place doesn’t excel on value but offers an impressive variety of cocktails.
The pub can be booked for corporate evenings and is a popular Friday boozing-spot for many city centre businesses after work. Expect to pay top-dollar (or Euro) for a mojito, but it’ll be worth it.
