The South County is the embodiment of a perfect pub/restaurant; it is cosy with hospitable staff, serves delicious, reasonably priced food, and generates a welcoming atmosphere when busy. It benefits from its proximity to the city yet feels distinctly different from the competition there. I have been there innumerable times and have never had a complaint. I visit Cork often... More

Went to South County with my partner, 3 kids and grandparents. We had a brilliant experience. The food was lovely. The waitress was amazing with the kids and the atmosphere was warm and inviting. All in all some of the best pub grub I have had in a long while. Well worth a trip!

We visited the South County for dinner on Friday evening and enjoyed a really lovely meal. My husband had the Surf and Turf and said the steak was one of the best he ever had. The service was warm and friendly and we really enjoyed our meal and it's a good place to bring kids to. Worth a visit.

There is a notice in this pub inviting customers to send a review of their visit to Tripadvisor. Careful what you ask for. What spoilt this meal for me was the menu. Or rather what was NOT on the menu but served ANYWAY. I ordered the cheeseburger but ALSO got chips and ( the killer for me ) cucumber, which... More

Organised a night out for a group of 15 friends and was pleasantly surprised with the service. I rang to reserve an area and they told us not only would they reserve an area but would also provide us with complimentary finger food!

Visited South County last week and was not disappointed. There is a very good selection on the menu. Try the seafood pancakes -they are delish. Staff were very friendly.
