There is a land, far across the sea, where "the road rises to meet you, the wind is always at your back, the sun shines warm upon your face, and the rains fall softly upon your fields". It is home to the Blarney Stone, Sheep's Head peninsula, rolling hills of green and miles of coastline. It is also the homeland of Ireland's best export, County Cork's own "Cora from Cork". Cora from Cork left the verdant hills of Ireland eight years ago, and now, along with her husband Patrick from Pawtucket, welcomes you to their cozy pub, County Cork Irish Pub. Once the home of "Oma & Opa's" breakfast nook, this newly opened pub is now owned and operated by this dynamic duo who joyfully invite you to its GRAND OPENING!
County Cork Irish Pub is as true to its name as you can imagine. The signature colors of Ireland bathe the walls and the rich, polished wood of the original bar make you feel as though you are on the Emerald Isle itself. There is a real comfort and familiarity here that beckons you to pull up a barstool and gulp down an authentic Guinness beer, Irish whiskey or maybe even one of Cork's humble "Paddy's". When eating inside, diners are treated to a breath-taking view of glistening Warwick Cove, but the best seat in the house is overlooking the bay, seated on the outside terrace.
Offering up a full service bar of everything from frothy beers and malts to finer wines and whiskeys, County Cork serves up 20 ounce glasses of brew instead of the usual 16 ounce. You can also choose from a delicious menu of specialty items, including Cora's homemade Irish Guinness Stew and chowder. Try one of County Cork's very own hand cut fries with their one-of-a-kind curry sauce or a "bacon buddy" (a BLT, made with Irish bacon, of course!) The menu is perfect pub fare - hearty, fresh and flavorful. Just bring your dinghy up to the "Dinghy Dock" and settle in for an unforgettable experience.
County Cork announces its GRAND OPENING on St. Patrick's Day! Join the mayor and all your friends for a day of celebration from 10:00am till 1:00am. If you come at 1:00pm, you will be lucky to hear "Cora from Cork" sing, and from this time forth, there will be live entertainment every weekend. Local Irish musicians and guest are even invited to come and play in one of County Cork's monthly "jam sessions". Nothing could be better.
