Cork Specialities

Cork confidently lays claim to being Ireland’s Food Capital. With its artisan food and drink producers spread throughout the largest county in Ireand suppling our markets, local stores, exclusive bars, vibrant cookery schools and excellent restaurants and pubs, Cork offers the very best when it comes to gastronomic experiences.

Whether its Chateaubriand or the best homemade burger, lobster thermador or battered cod and chips you’ll find it all in this food addict’s paradise! Cork offers a host of eating experiences for every palate. Try Tripe and Drisheen, Black and White Pudding or a little bit of Offal.


We're no slouches when it comes to beer either. Try our extraordinary black stouts - Murphy's, Beamish and MiDaza - and then tells us how it compares to that lone Dublin stuff - Guinness! And did you know that the world's best selling larger, Heineken, is brewed in Cork.


If you like craft beers the Franciscan Well on North Mall pulls a younger crowd and brews its own beers like Rebel Red, Shandon Stout, Friar Weise and Blarney Blonde out the back.
