I`ve visited your pub while we were hanging in south of Ireland. It was one of the best bar´s we visited. The atmosphere was very good and the bar service was great. Kevin treated us very friendly and always had time for our questions. We will definitely be back again.

Our family of five, (including 3 kids) stopped here for dinner on our way back to Kinsale after a day of touring. The meal was huge and very nice. I highly recommend this place.

Four of us had a lovely dinner here in November. Two had chicken & mushroom pie, so yummy, comes with pastry lid on top, someone had salmon and another had bruschetta. All food was delicious. Would definitely return, especially for their pies.

We often drop in for Sunday lunch and it never disappoints! I had the roast of the day, which was melt in the mouth beef. My husband had the steak sandwich, and was equally pleased with his choice. Fine portions at a good price, with friendly and efficient staff. It's nice to support a local business too! I'll be back...

This Traditional Irish pub with often great music played serves a great breakfast/Lunch (My Fav) Or dinner.. Menu alternates and gives great scrumptious options from the roast sandwich to the wings and there desert sundae is a must!! This place gives the lovely 'home-made' Irish meals and that has never failed to please the appetite. Very well run by Tom-... More

South County is a great pub; very well run, good staff and perfect for a quiet pint or a party with a number of areas around the bar for private functions. The food is excellent, from finger food for parties to the full menu options Highly recommended

Good value Food, drinks and IRISH MUSIC is what makes the South County Bar & café, Douglas a must when visiting Cork. Douglas village is a short taxi ride(3 miles) from Cork city and the South County is within walking distance of local hotels The Maryborogh House & Rochestown Park Hotel(both 10 mins walk). This award winning Irish pub has an old world feel, has a cosy snug and a wonderful outdoor area, 'The Guinness beer Garden'. IRISH MUSIC sessions throughout the year...Every Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday nights aswell as a fun sing-along ballad session every Sunday at 6pm. This pub also boasts a large selection of Irish whiskies in the Whiskey corner and serves the tastiest Irish coffee around !!
