This is a great place if you want to pass an hour or two rummaging for bargains. Lots of household stuff from the recent past, clothes and a cafe.
There is something for everyone here I think. I'll be back on my next visit to Cork.

If you like mooching around antique and brick a brack shops, this is the place. Vintage clothes, both men and woman's. I got a silk shift dress for 15 euro. Most things were reasonably priced. Open 11 till 4 on a weekend. There is a cafe which was good value with homemade cake and big pots of tea in old vintage teapots. If I could have got more stuff in my case I would have bought loads!

Fantastic little gem hidden away in Cork's centre. Opens every weekend, I popped in on a recent trip to the city. There's even a cute little cafe in there! Bought a couple of old books, browsed through some cool vintage clothes. There's such an eclectic mix of absolutely anything and everything in here. The bags made out of old records are pretty cool and the jewellery is beautiful. There's also a lovely woman who offers 15 minute massages for €10 - a true bargain and a welcome refuge from a busy day of shopping!

This place is great. I went in for a browse and came out with a hat, a fur coat and a handfull of records! The clothes stalls in there are really unusual and funky and the prices are too good to be true! My fabulous coat was only 15euro and the hat a tenner! Great selection of books and records. The cafe is really friendly, great chats and coffee. A real mix of people in there young, old, arty types, indie types, punky types, women looking for interesting pieces of furniture for the house, old men shopping for books on Irish politics. A very warm and welcoming atmosphere. I'd definitely recomend it.

Went there yesterday and there was a great buzz. It's a funky place and everything is kind of DIYed together but that's exactly what I loved about it. You should take the time to hang around and look at everything and you are sure to find something great whatever it is you are looking for. They even have bikes. I left with a fantastic blue and white sailor style jacket for only ten euro and will go back as soon as I can. If you love markets, you'll love this!
