Bang in the middle of Cork city. Great atmosphere and different parts. Music in the main area is always good, but they need to get the bands on earlier.

I was in the Old Oak 27th of June to meet friends for drinks. When I realised my stick was missing I asked for help which I didn't receive . I won't be going back there again

A new friend, a local, suggested we meet here for lunch - great choice! We all had a fantastic warm chicken and bacon salad with a side of fries. It was done perfectly and our waitress took great care of us. We also enjoyed the atmosphere of the large, dim and cozy pub.

We ate here on a stop through Cork en route to Kilkenny. It has a nice atmosphere, the staff was very friendly & helpful, & the food was very good. They had a decent amount of vegetarian options, which is why we picked it. Prices were reasonable & I would definitely recommend it!

We were there at the beginning of bar hopping and it was a great first stop. Live music, good beer selection. The place has a nice feel, very welcoming. Had been recommended by our hotel, glad they steered us that way.

I was there for a lunch and beer and it was just perfect. The place is quite huge, good music, Guiness for 5 euros and not far from the city center.

I love the oak! There's always a great atmosphere and I'm a student so I really appreciate the low drink prices! My parents come here, my friends come here, visitors to the city come here, there's something for everyone. Lovely staff and music you can dance the night away to, when in doubt go to the Old Oak!

Anytime in Cork we go here, great bands. Last time we were there we had buggy so went during day. Both of us got fed for under a tenner and food was great and WELL worth it.
