The Cork Arms

The Cork Arms is a hidden gem, in a busy world. It has been a family run business for generations, and the current owners are Patsy and Laurence O’ Leary. It is located at 23 McCurtain St, one of Cork’s busiest streets, home to numerous pubs and restaurants, and part of Cork’s burgeoning Victorian Quarter.

Patricia O' LearyThe People

Pop in on any day and you are more than likely to find Patsy behind the bar, administering wisdom and cheer in equal measure.

Equally likely is a couple eating Fish & Chips from The Fish Wife by the fireplace, a group of people singing along to the jukebox, accompanied by the quiet background rattle of a sinking pool ball.

The jukebox offers a wonderful selection of 60’s, 70’s and 80’s music, and can regularly be heard as backing to the locals who are apt to break into song as the mood takes them.

The Fish Wife

Pop across the road and order traditional Fish and Chips from the Fish Wife, where Caroline and her team will be delighted to take your order, and to deliver it to your table in the Cork Arms….an amazingly tasty treat with a local beer of your choice.

The Everyman Palace

The Cork Arms is the perfect location for a pre-theatre drink, located a few doors away from the Victorian Everyman Palace Theatre. The Everyman offers an extensive programme of music, drama and pantomime throughout the year, in sumptuously restored Victorian/Edwardian surroundings.
