"With the somewhat ironic name, Sober Lane invites party people to enjoy energetic music, and even grab a bite to eat while you’re there. The bar hosts private parties, hosts events and gigs, and even shows sports games. Depending on the day of the week you’re there, you may get to partake in one of the many fun themed nights held on specific nights."
"This great pub, situated right on the bank of the River Lee in the heart of Cork, is famous for their thin-based, generously topped pizzas – often called the best in town. Some of the other food specialities include delicious sweet potato fries and chicken goujons. Food is served until late."
"Once providing haircuts with your pint, Sin É is now one of the city's top venues for live traditional Irish music. Pronounced 'shin ay', meaning 'that's it', the name is a reference to the funeral parlour next door. Far from being past its expiry date, the walls, which are covered in postcards and posters, shake with the sounds of fiddles and flutes as locals strike up the sounds of Ireland."
"A Gaelic pub through and through, Sin é has attracted a loyal following of folk-loving locals since it opened 150 years ago. A homely tavern stuffed with nautical knick-knacks and Guinness memorabilia, Sin é is one of Cork’s welcoming old-school establishments. The long-time home of folk music, make a beeline here for live trad sessions – craic is guaranteed."
"Tucked away in Coburg Street, the bar is somewhat off-the-beaten track. Traditional in many ways, the bar's name ("sin é" - "that's it") nods to its historic use as a venue for drowning one's sorry after a wake at the nearby funeral home. Stop by to hear fine traditional music sessions and enjoy good craic every day of the week."

"Reardens is the ultimate spot to be for an all-around good time. Whether you sneak off to a quieter spot in one of their smaller bars, or you opt to stay right in the middle of the energy and dance away the night. They have food, sport, music, and drinks!"
"The first is Rearden’s Bar which is at 26 Washington Street. This pub generates more social activity in one night than most bars can produce in a year!. It’s known as the biggest bar in Cork and it hosts great live music every day."
"Good review: "So loud. Still have tinnitus 3 days later. Good fun though." - Such fun that she still have it four stars. Bad review: "The sweatiest most claustrophobic place to be on a Tuesday night."
"Cork is well known for the quality of its pubs and restaurants. The Elbow House Brew and Smokehouse is an iconic establishment renowned for its steak and fish dishes, while Qunilans Seafood Bar benefits from using fish that is delivered fresh every day. Hop into our Cork restaurants guide and our Cork pubs guide to discover great places to eat and drink."
"was created around the concept of socialising through food and drink. Located in a renovated art-deco building, previously a bank, the Electric towers above the banks of the river Lee, with panoramic views of St Finbarr Cathedral. Starting from downstairs, a hopping bar offers exquisite cocktails; and upstairs, hanging right over the water, is a fish bar, inspired by Portuguese and Spanish tavernas."
"This art deco restaurant over looks the cathedral and the river, and serves up amazing seafood caught fresh each day so expect amazing oysters, crab claws and hearty fish stews. Once the eating's done, this place transforms into a buzzing nightclub, so definitely stick around."
"Camden Fort Meagher is internationally recognized as being “One of the finest remaining examples of a classical Coastal Artillery Fort in the world”. For almost 400 years the fort played a key role as a strong strategic position for the defense of Ireland, the west coast of England and Wales. The fort is a prime location to watch ships passing through Cork Harbour, the second-largest natural harbour in the world."
"Described as “one of the finest remaining examples of a classical coastal artillery fort in the world,” Camden Fort Meagher dates back to 1550. Forming part of the harbour’s fortification system, it expanded gradually over the centuries. You can now wander through the deserted, windowless ramparts and around its craggy stone walls for an eerie insight into the history of Cork’s maritime defence."
"Charles Fort – Situated on the edge of the water in the scenic village of Summer Cove in the Kinsale harbour of County Cork, lies the impressive and historic Charles Fort. The castle was originally constructed in the year 1682, and it was built as the ‘new fort’, in contrast to the ‘old fort’, or James Fort, which was built in the early 17th century on the other side of the same harbour. The fort played a critical military role throughout the centuries that it was active, until the year 1921, following the Anglo-Irish Treaty."
"One of Europe's best-preserved star-shaped artillery forts, this vast 17th-century fortification would be worth a visit for its spectacular views alone. But there's much more here: the 18th- and 19th-century ruins inside the walls make for some fascinating wandering. It's 3km southeast of Kinsale along the minor road through Scilly; if you have time, hike there along the lovely coastal Scilly Walk."
