Super fun evening. Music and clogging was great. Sit at bar if you want to spend the evening. There are two dinner shows and the tables clear out between.

When you're downstairs at the Oliver Plunkett in the early evening, you'll hear the Irish music playing upstairs. It will get you foot stomping and make you want to go up there to check it out. Make sure you do!

A very nice and lively place with live (modern) music to visit in Cork. A little crowded, but nice atmosphere.

We stumbled onto this bar. What a great place. The live music, people and staff were very friendly. We went back two other nights for meals and dance lessons. It was awesome. Recommend going there for a fun time.

We came here for a bite to eat and to take in some great music and beer. We were not disappointed. The food was delicious and the beer was smooth. The entertainment topped off our evening. Came for one, stayed for many.
