I'm a "pint of Guinness in the snug" kind of person so this is not my kind of pub. But full credit to Molly's because this is exactly the kind of place that makes Clonakilty what it is. You have to give it a go.More

Lovely casual comfy wine bar in a great location. You simply select your wine from the vast selection at the adjacent off-license and just pay €4 corkage! Food-wise there are platters, bruschetta, hummus, garlic bread, nachos and more to nibble on. Friendly helpful staff.
