Cant believe I only heard about the shop through a friend this week. Great collections, encompassing all tastes, and very affordable

Best shop in Cork
May 2018 • Family
I shop here every month and call in once a week or fortnight at least. John, the owner, knows and loves his music, never rips vinyl buyers off, and is just sound out. The shop is small but has tons of records - I'm building a great jazz collection through it but there's tons of other genres in there - and the vibe is excellent in there. Bigger shops have the bells and whistles but no depth to what they sell and not a fraction of music knowledge. If you love your music, you will love this place. I hope this place goes from strength to strength because (a) I just like it (b) it's not part of some corporate music chain and (c) it's a genuine record store with a small studio attached. Finally, Bunker Vinyl sells music by smaller but terrific Irish acts like the jazz band, Fixity. The place totally deserves its recent commendations in the press as one of Ireland's best stores for vinyl.

Fantastic store
May 2018 • Family
Best store in Cork. John is the nicest guy you could meet and the store is so welcoming, great stock. We bring our 18 month old there and John is always so friendly to him. Helped me choose a great record for my husband as a present. Only problem I have with the store is we’d leave most of the monthly income there if we could :-) Great selection, great atmosphere, best place to get your vinyl.

Best record store in Cork!
Apr 2018 • Solo
Been there several times now - John, the owner, is the nicest guy you could imagine - with a great music taste to accompany that. Judging from the atmosphere, the range of amazing records they sell as well as the price range, this is the #1 store in Cork for me.
Thanks John ;)

Best Record Shop In Cork
Oct 2017
Fantastic shop with a fantastic owner. I went with my girlfriend and we spent about an hour and change talking with the owner, John, and looking through his diverse record collection of new and vintage vinyl. He was a great chat and he knew exactly how to help us find what we were looking for. John also gave some great music recommendations. The location is great and we had a pleasant experience. Any music lover visiting Cork should visit Bunker Vinyl and Studio!

Great Find!

Great little record store with a haphazardly-fun selection of records, and a very welcoming owner who's great company whilst you're perusing the stacks. This record store is worth the trip for anyone in Cork interested in getting some brand-new and/or classic records!

Loved this place
May 2017 • Friends
Came across this record shop on a recent visit to cork and was very pleased with the experience. Although the shop may seem small,it carries a great selection of many genres and some great hidden gems too. The owner was incredibly welcoming and knowledgeable about things and happy to let us listen to a couple of records before making any decision (there were also listening decks at the back which was a nice touch for curious customers). Overall it was nice to really revel in some good music in a shop that you felt you could spend real time in without feeling unwelcome, with an owner who shared in that passion. I would definitely recommend .

Such a great place
May 2017 • Friends
I recently visited Cork for the first time and before I had even visited Bunker I was already blown away by how welcoming and friendly everyone was, but stumbling upon this gem really hammered that feeling home. I'm a bit of a vinyl enthusiast so I was immediately drawn to it as soon as I saw the sign. Upon entering I was met with an impressive selection and variety of music for such a small space. John welcomed us with smile and was so helpful and understanding whilst me and the people I was with browsed the selection. I have quite a wide range in terms of musical taste so this place suited me perfectly, and John even offered to let us sample some of the records we took interest to, which is not a common thing for most record stores, but John was more than happy to extend that courtesy to us. After a long chat about everything from music to whatever else for an extensive time I ended up leaving with a record by Manchester Orchestra, a band I had been meaning to check out for a while, which I might have just left and forgotten about if John hadn't let me have a listen first. Furthermore, even though we spoke for a long time John did not once make it feel like we were imposing, he was just happy to chat as much as we were. It is always a pleasure to meet someone who is so enthusiastic about music, and it is always great to find independent businesses run by such people, you can tell it is in their blood so I'm always happy to support them.
