    Weekend in Cork

    Hello all,

    If anyone has some useful info would be greatful if you posted here. 10 of us coming from London area to Cork next weekend. It's a stag do, but a tame one! We are after good pubs, live music and late bars as oppossed to nightclubs!
    Any ideas on where to show some English fellas some decent pubs, instead of the light Ale houses over here!

    Cheers lads!

      Anywhere on Oliver Plunkett street will be grand, loads of good bars there and late night bars. Old Oak would be a good starting point.

        First night half the stag will be based in Cork the other half in Limerick. Then the Saturday we will all meet up and see if we get along

          Don't expect the guys in Limerick to get passed Charleville.

          As mentioned Oliver plunkett st is best spot. Washington St for younger crowd. If ye are looking for trad Irish An Spailpin fanach South main st or Corner House coburg St.
          Fransiscan Well brew their own beers.

          Enjoy your weekend and Munster playing Ospreys in Musgrave Pk at 5pm on the Sunday if ye get tired of pub scene

              Had a boozy weekend in Cork last Saturday, no one we met mentioned the Munster academy, the trading centre or the plight of UCC or CIT.
              Anyway, we had pints in Mutton Lane, The Long Valley, Bierhaus, The Friary, Franciscan Well and The Abbotts. Lunch was had in Market Lane. First two are near Oliver P St. The others are in a straight line from Popes Quay down. The Rising Sons on Coal Quay has big screens for the rugby. Enjoy Cork.

                      I'd watch the rugby in Rising Sons (pints and pizza) on the Coal Quay. Maybe pints before or after in Franciscan Well (North Mall). The Bierhaus would break the journey. All are either microbreweries or craft beer houses.

                      For some music (trad) there's Sin é on Cobrug Street. For some authentic Cork pubs there's The Castle (South Main Street), The Oval (South Main Street), Tom Barrys (Barrack Street), Mutton Lane Inn (off Pana).

                      For late pub options there's Crane Lane (music and pints), Old Oak (music and pints, older crowd), Reardens (**** hole but some people like that sort of ****- think lots of people from the country in Gah shirts vibe), Oliver Plunkett (same as Reardens but less Gah shirts) and Bodega (same as Crane Lane, but probably a bit more 'refined')

                            Thanks for all the info lads. Looks like there is plenty to do and only 2 nights to do it! The rising Sons for the for the Blues v Bleus game. Shame we won't be there for the game on the Sunday but everyone is working Monday. Or at least are required to be present for work. Thanks again all.

                              TBH Crane Lane is Bleh - the main floors and smoking area are a cattlemart
                              Maines - the side bar of Crane Lane is OK

                              Was in The Oliver Plunkett for first time in years and upstais is a good spot - live music and nice atmosphere

                              Small pubs - try Cantys (next to Crane Lane) , Bodhran (tight fit with 10 of ye) also near Cantys

                              Tom Barrys on Barrack St would be a good place to start continue down across bridge to The Spailpin Fanach on south main st and The Oval _ about 20 metres further !!
                              Continue along Sth Main St and Cross intersection to North Main St.....

                              North main st has The Raven/The Castle and The Vicarstown
                              You could then head over to 1 of 2 Microbreweries - Franciscan Well - need to continue to end of North Main st and cross the north channel of the Lee !
                              OR
                              Go to The Coal Quay to the Rising SOns Microbrewery - both worth a visit

                              You could go across road from Rising Sons to The Bodega for some dancing etc

                              Alternative pubs

                              Dennehys Coal Quay
                              The Roundy corner of Coal Quay/Corn Market St
                              The Woodford - diagonally across from The Roundy (behind McDOnalds)


                              BTW AVOID - The Oak - seriously !
