Cork’s reputation as a kind of cultural “Dublin south” is burnished by its restaurant scene, smattered with trendy eateries. (Nearby Kinsale, however, is where the county really goes to let its collective belt out.)

Brewing Up Loyalty

Ireland is known for its love of Guinness, but in Cork you’re more likely to find locals drinking the two locally brewed stouts—Murphy’s or Beamish. There is a definite sense of civic loyalty when it comes to drinking stout in this town. In fact, walk into any pub and order a “home and away” and you’ll be presented with a pint of Murphy’s and one of Guinness.
