Photos and music from pubs in Cork


Cork, like all irish cities, has a great many pubs. Some also offer some excellent gigs. Sometimes the pubs are crowded, sometimes the audience is quite small and it's very relaxing. The photos below date from between 2003 and 2008.

Traditional Irish music: The Lobby (Sunday, but now closed), Sin E (Tuesday, Sunday), An Brog (upstairs, Sunday and Monday), Mutton Lane Inn (Monday), Corner House (Wednesday), Counihans and Cruiscin Lan(Sunday)

Live music: Charlies, Sin E, Tikki Lounge, Corner House, Bealestreet, An Cruiscin Lán, Old Oak, Roundy Room, ...

DJ night: 'Double Time' with DJ Gary in Spailpin Fanach (once a month, jazz and swing)
