We've enjoyed many meals here but the current promotion is really outstanding. Soup + main course + a drink for 10 Euro. As ever the service is very good, the staff are welcoming and friendly. Lovely atmosphere and great food. Not to be missed.

Thanks for your positive comments and we are delighted that you enjoyed our Tuesday night 'Tea for a Tenner!' promotion. Our customers are really happy with this promotion and we plan to keep it running up to Christmas and maybe beyond. We have brought our Irish music forward to 8.30pm on a Tuesday also which seems to suit people better....Thanks... More

Definitely the best bar in Douglas. Particularly like the fire and the smell is reminiscent of a country pub. Always great and friendly service at the bar. Recommended!

Busy bar in the heart of suburban village of Douglas. Location sampled on a Tues evening with the lure of good food at bargain price. Delighted to have got more value than expected with good fare being complemented by great service, live music, space and ambiance - worth another visit!

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
