On rugby trip and stopped off for a few beers. Grabbed a early evening meal before the game. Food was good with a reasonable selection on the menu. Staff friendly and accommodating.

Enjoyed that pub and restaurant of course. Typical tourist location but also nice for old Irish 🍀 citizens.

This appears to be a major venue in Cork with nightly music upstairs and downstairs.The local rock band bedrock played a 2 hour show without a break and the pub was 3 deep at the bar.A good night out expect to pay about 5-6 euros a pint as in most of Corks pubs.

Sandwiches with 3 fillings for 6.50 is a crazy price. And you have to pay extra for an extra filling. This place is over priced for simple sandwiches that really aren't different to anywhere else. The vegetable soup was watered down. Very disappointed after recommending it to friends. Menu really lacks variety aswel. Will not come again.
