We stopped here looking for lunch, recommended by the hotel. Only option for food was woodfired pizza. Although the pizza was good, it wasn't exactly what we expected.

Came for a couple of drinks with some friends, not the first time here but while sitting outside the pizzas passing by started to intrigue me and opened the appetite. Great value price quality, pizza straight from the wood Owen tasting quite nice. In the end surprised with it.

So glad that I was able to hit up this brewery while in Cork. The location was easy to find and I am glad we were walking because parking didn't seem to be easy to come by. The brewery has an interesting layout. Inside is the bar and outside is the food counter. The outside area is covered so even... More

The sleeper surprise was the absolutely amazing pizza from the booth out back. Honestly one of the best pizza of my life! The pizza booth is a... More

This is a microbrewery and pub just "off-island" on the N side of the River Lee, five minutes' walk from St Patrick's Street and its shops. Enter via an unassuming passage and you will find yourself in a lively bar with relatively few seats. Turn left and head outside to the covered area with the pizza oven for more seats... More

I feel like my memories of the Franciscan Well are typically hazy, usually involve shouting and at least one glass being broken. Bring your girl friend, but definitely not for a first date.

And the price is more than reasonable. if one day I will come back to visit Cork, for sure I will take again... More
