When visiting Cork you must visit this place. The selection of what they sell is quite outstanding, but it’s not cheap, my wife commented that some items were nearly twice as much as identical items we purchase locally in the UK. The place has a...More

What I would give to have a market like this in the town where I live. Particularly loved the variety and quality of the fish stalls.

We were very impressed with the busy market. It was lunch time and we were recommended to eat at the Farmgate Cafe. It served delicious whole foods with tables looking down into the market. It was so busy and they had a system of order,...More

I can't understand the fuss about this market. Crowded any time I'm here. Staff not always pleasant and food not always cheap. An acquired taste obviously

Hi, I cannot be 100% certain, but last year it was closed Easter Sunday and Monday, so I'd imagine this year would be the same.

Oh, I have no idea. We just stopped in Cork on our way from Kilnarey to Dublin. We got there around noon time (I think). It was crowded on that Wednesday afternoon, but not oppressive. But I imagine week-ends would be... More

Yes there is an excellent bar in a lane way entrance to the market known as the oyster bar. Excellent.
