Cork confidently lays claim to being Ireland’s Food Capital. With its artisan food and drink producers spread throughout the largest county in Ireland suppling our markets, local stores, exclusive bars, vibrant cookery schools and excellent restaurants and pubs, Cork offers the very best when it comes to gastronomic experiences. Whether its Chateaubriand or the best homemade burger, lobster thermador or battered cod and chips you’ll find it all in this food addict’s paradise! Cork offers a host of eating experiences for every palate. Food, glorious food.
There some very special restaurants in Cork just waiting for you to find them and the great thing is many can only be found here in the city. We have award-winning restaurants and restaurants in castles; cafés and restaurants that are great for kids and dining for grownups. You can also find information for the best restaurants for groups of friends and where to enjoy a special dinner for two.
If all that food is making you thirsty, there are plenty of pubs and bars in Cork – from the very old to the very new. And when you add a toe tapping traditional Irish session into the mix? Well. There’s nothing left to say really – is there??
