In Cork for the weekend with friends we called into the Sherbourne for a pint. The staff were friendly and welcoming. The atmosphere was good as was the drinks. We enjoyed ourselves so much we returned again on the Saturday.

You know how in the movies the main character walks in a bar and before he gets to order, the drink is there waiting? That's how I feel at the Shelbourne. Philip and his staff are second to none.

We stopped here for lunch while visiting Cork. It looked and felt like good pub. While the selection of beer was good, the food left a little to be desired. But this seems more like a night time hang out where football and rugby fans congregate. It might be worthwhile trying at night.

Great clientele and great servers. The atmosphere was friendly and chilled out. Nice and simple. For whiskey lovers, try the 21 yr Teeling!

This is a great pub. The staff were very friendly and very helpful. They know Cork well and were able to advise on places to go and see. It is a very busy pub and a lot of local seem to have a drink here which is a very good sign. The pub seems to have a large range of... More

Popped in for a quick drink in my way to the train station. Located next to the theatre I found this to be a nice down to earth friendly bar.

Nice pub went here pre theatre .prices were reasonable for the city. Pub is old and some bits a little worse for wear but it's an old Irish pub so I suppose that is its charm.

First pub I visited in Cork and I loved it. They have a small but decent selection of stout and ales. I have been twice both before 17:00 and it was very quiet which is nice but they do get really busy later. They have good prices on the beers and a huge selection of whiskey much of which is... More
