This is a huge pub right in the centre of Cork. It doesn't look anything from the outside but it's actually really spacious inside. Loads of TVs showing music. I'd definitely go back if I was passing.

A great place to meet up and hang out, and a good spot to catch any sport's matches on the tv. Very friendly staff as well.

Our group reserved their upstairs room 2 nights a week. They got upset because they felt we didn't spend enough. Thing is, if they opened it at 6 like they were supposed to, we wouldn't have had to buy all our drinks downstairs, and they would have seen just how much we were spending.

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.
