The only pub I know is the one connected with The Watersedge hotel, and it has a nice terrace right on the water front. The Watersedge hotel is one minute walk from the the Cobh Heritage Centre. (Queenstown story)

There are not a huge number of pubs in Cobh so finding one you like should not be difficult.

Just have a look in the door and if it appeals to you go in, if not - keep walking.

Here is a general guideline on opening hours:

Closing time midweek is 11.30pm with half hour drinking up time.

Closing time on Friday and Saturday nights is 12.30am with half hour drinking up time.

Every pub shuts on Good Friday and Christmas Day. Alcohol cannot be purchased anywhere on these days.

Personally I like the Bar in the Commodore but there's probably a dozen bars spread around town.

Not too sure and bars but we have recently discovered Gilberts Resturant in the " square " in Cobh , they have a fab early bird menu from 5-7pm ( €20-24 ) and it is some of the best food I have eaten !!

There are lots of Pubs in Cobh !!! Probably the best one for tourists is Kellys Bar right in the middle. The owner Tom puts on regular live music during the day when the big liners are in and the staff are very friendly and helpful.

There is also the Quays Bar and Restaurant next to Watersedge hotel which is nice if its a sunny day - a bit rare for us here in Cobh though !

The Rob Roy Bar is young and lively and good for live bands on occasions.

I am from Cobh so please feel free to ask any other questions.

The usual closing time is 12.30 am but they have been known to close a bit later !

A bit later...hahaha. I bet they do.

Its not very uncommon for people to get to the pub 20 mins before "closing time".
