Food, atmosphere and staff, Scannell's have got it right. It seems like the owners really have put a lot of love into this bar. Buzzing and busy on Friday afternoon at about 3pm, but still, we as non-locals, were greeted as we walked in and told to take a seat they were still serving lunch. Delicious options at €13, then...

Myself and my partner popped in here for a late lunch on Tuesday. I had the steak bap which was delicious and the chips were my favourite - handcut and seasoned perfectly accompanied with a scrumcious garlic dip. My boyfriend had the curry which he really enjoyed and was extremely tasty. The barman was very friendly and attentive also. The... More

Called in for lunch which we were really impressed with it. They only serve until 4 o clock but there is a lovely atmosphere and food is fabulous. Will definitely return.

A friend recommended Scannell's for a chat - very inviting and comfortable (especially if you can get a seat near the fire!) Good beer, friendly folk.

Seven of us really enjoyed our lunches in Scannell's Bar. Four had the venison stew for the main course. It was very tasty. The meat was lovely and tender, but not overcooked, as can easily happen with venison. The accompanying red cabbage enhanced the dish's flavour, and a little more of this on the plate would have made it even... More

We visited whilst staying in Cork with friends, it was recommended to us. The food was okay and came out fairly quick considering it was quite busy. The staff were very friendly and attentive checking if everything was okay, my only niggle was the Irish coffee wasn't very good, we wanted our friend to try it for the first time... More

From the reviews I was expecting something special but our lunch here was average . I expect a good seafood chowder to be hearty and tasty. Ours was more a bowl of cream with a few pieces of fish floating around. Mind you a couple of tasty crab claws nearly lifted it. The better half was well pleased with her... More

Had a drink here recently, the place had a good atmosphere. Would have tried food too however limited hours so maybe something they can improve on! Nice cosy fireplace too!

Went in here with friends on a Thursday night. There was an acoustic session going on and lots of people got together to play music. Good combination of music and everyone in the pub seemed to enjoy it. Drinks are well priced and good quality. Nice lady Behind the bar, very friendly. I Would recommend people to visit here
