Took a foreign work colleague here who lives whiskey. We heard live music, warmed ourselves by the open fire and had 12 & 15 year old redbreast. Great bar great staff and for me one of the top bars in Cork city.

A warm and welcoming bar, plenty of room outside, under cover, and a great music venue. In the south of the city on Douglas Street, well worth a visit.

Been here several times at this stage and always had a good night. The staff are fast and friendly. Nothing worse than waiting ages for a pint. Well worth a visit
