The trail starts in Cork city.

My first Tip

I highly recommend The Electric Fish Bar on the South Mall.

Every time I come here, I just love it. They have a yummy selection of seafood, a good choice of wines, in a really buzzy atmosphere, and lovely views overlooking the River Lee. Seafood heaven !

Tip # 2

Tip #2 also from Cork city, is Cork pubs.

When in Cork, check out some of the brilliant pubs.

The Hi-B, Cork city

It’s not easy to pick my 6 favourites, but here we go, I’ve done my best:

  1. Mutton Lane, just off Patrick St. It’s in a little lane between Patrick St. and the English Market. This is a classic old Irish pub and is much-loved by local Corkonians.
  2. Crane Lane, on Phoenix St. & Arthur Mayne’s, on Pembroke St. Two very different atmospheres side by side. Crane Lane is a great live music venue with a nice outdoor courtyard, and Arthur Mayne’s is a cool tapas wine bar just next door.
  3. on the list: Sin é, on Coburg St. ‘Sin é’ means ‘Voila’, and it is generally considered to be the home of Irish traditional music in the southern capital.
  4. on the list: The Hi-B, Oliver Plunkett St. The Hi-B is a Cork institution. It is absolutely unique, there is no other pub in the world like it. You’ll just have to go and see what I mean- but guaranteed, it’s great fun.
  5. on the list is The Castle, #99 South Main St. This is a brilliant old pub, with a nice mix of young and old customers. I always enjoy a pint in there.
  6. And finally number 6 on the list: The Oval, on South Main St, #25. The Oval has a lovely cosy atmosphere, good music, a young crowd- I absolutely love the vibe !
