Was here last night with the lovely Ursula and our friends. Super comfy as we were seated on a plush leather sofa at the back of the bar. A great band called The Lynch Mob were playing and rocked it right up to closing time....More

This is one of the traditional local pubs still intact in Cork. The place is arranged as a little labyrinth with a lot of lovely spots to hold a conversation. True Cork style

Excellent cosy pub. I love the atmosphere and lighting. It is quite a large pub but has lots of nice seatting arragements, nooks and crannies that make it seem very cosy and intimate. Attention to detail in the decor too is very nice. Staff have...More
