Best Brunch Cork City: 11 Spots Ye'll LOVE in 2021
"We've seen lots of action happening at Dwyers - which already went to great lengths to cater for outdoor drinking and dining last summer. The team there have been very, very busy in recent days, putting in a purpose-built platform that will provide the base for seats and tables down one side of this big pub. There'll be a good menu, lots of space, room for walk-ins and thanks to that platform, no rickety tables!"
"Having opened up in the City back in 2018, Dwyers is a firm favourite of Corkonians for boozy brunch. Pick any dish from eggs benedict to their incredible pancake sharing platter and pair it with unlimited prosecco or mimosa for just €25 - what a bargain."
"Head to Dwyers of Cork for one of the best bottomless brunches in the country. Pick any dish of their menu, we suggest the Swiss roti or shakshuka and have unlimited prosecco or mimosas all for €25!. Address: 27-28 Washington St, Centre, Cork, T12 WC93"
"Whether you’ve a banging hangover on a Sunday morning or it’s Monday morning and you fancy a healthy breakfast fix to get you through a busy workday, Perry Street Market is worth a shout. This cute café is all about locally sourced produce and freshly made from scratch breakfast foods. The full Irish is both fulfilling and delicious."
"For those with a sweet tooth, Lab 82 is the place for you when visiting Cork city. With six different types of pancakes on their menu, ranging from American style pancakes with streaky bacon and maple syrup to kinder bueno pancakes stacked with chocolatey goodness, there is something for all pancake lovers!. As if that is not enough, since opening in 2018 they have gone on to win awards for the Best Coffee in the Best of Cork Awards 2019."
"Although it’s open for lunch and dinner, it’s the breakfast that has the X-Factor. Popular among locals and visitors alike, this place bangs out a breakfast that’ll make your belly very happy. If you don’t fancy one of their famous fry-ups, don’t worry."
"Another defensive building constructed to help citizens, Elizabeth Fort was built in 1601, although in 1603 at the death of Queen Elizabeth I, a revolt in the city saw the castle being attacked and seized by the locals. When English reinforcements arrived and re-established control, the good people of Cork were forced to pay for its repair. It was rebuilt in stone in the 1620s and played a pivotal role in the siege of Cork in the 1690s."
"On a bend in the River Lee next to St Finbarre’s Cathedral, Elizabeth Fort has only just opened up to visitors. From 1601 to 2013, this building had a variety of roles and was first built to reinforce Cork’s city walls against the new threat of artillery. The fort was beefed up by Cromwell in 1649, and in 1690 the Jacobite defenders came under siege by the Williamites (fighting for the Dutch protestant prince William of Orange)."
"Newly open to visitors, Elizabeth Fort straddles the River Lee, next to St Fin Barre’s Cathedral. The fort’s been active in one way or another from 1601 to 2013 and claims an incredibly textured history. Built to defend the city walls against artillery, it was fortified by Cromwell in 1649 and later came under siege from the Williamites, battling for the Dutch prince William of Orange."
"Wandesford Quay Clarkes Bridge, Cork Ireland+353 21 432 2422[email protected].

"Another UCC building, the sleek Lewis Glucksman Gallery, designed by Irish architects O’Donnell + Tuomey, is one of Cork’s newest buildings and one of the most widely praised, having earned many accolades since being added to the campus in 2004. As well as being named Ireland’s Best Public Building in 2005, its architecture also won a UK Civic Trust award, a RIBA award and was shortlisted for the Royal Institute of British Architects Stirling Prize. The wood-covered gallery building was designed to fit seamlessly in with its sylvan surroundings."

"22/07/2021: Went to eat here with the family on our staycation this past week. The food was delicious however the atmosphere was very uncomfortable. You could notice that the staff were working very hard to meet customer needs with one being visibly upset at the managers treatment of their work."
