Can you dissociate beer and Ireland? We can’t! It must be said that with whiskey, this “foam” is an institution in the country of Oscar Wilde. Beer is even the most popular alcoholic drink in Ireland, boasting 46% of the market share! What’s more, the country produces more than 760 million liters of it every year. You’ll never be thirsty at least, especially if you visit Cork, the very academic city in the south of the country. We have selected three pubs for you – just make sure you don’t stumble!
Franciscan Well Brewery, for the purists
Built on the site of a monastery dating back to 1219, this brewery is a perfect mix of tradition and modernity. It offers a varied choice of lager, ale, and wheat beer but, above all, artisanal products without any preservatives, so there is sure to be something to satisfy your taste buds. All this with the possibility of guided tours to learn all about Irish beers. What more could you ask for?
Franciscan Well Brewery | 14B North Mall, Cork
Jim Cashman’s Pub, for brewing culture
A must-see pub in the heart of downtown, especially if you like to meet people! At Jim Cashman’s Pub, locals and tourists mingle in a joyful hubbub. Good beer, traditional food, football (or rugby) on TV, and live concerts… Isn’t life great?
Jim Cashmans Pub | 26 Academy St, Cork
Old Oak, for those on a budget
Well, we won’t say that beer in Cork costs the same as in Paris, but not all the pubs in the city are equal in this area. Here, we found you a really cheap establishment – just 4.5 euros a pint! This may explain why the Old Oak is one of the most frequented pubs, especially popular with students.
Old Oak | 113, rue Oliver Plunkett
