Somewhere across the Atlantic, there is a toasty warm pub where local patrons have gathered to escape the cold rain of an Irish winter. Undoubtedly, a fire is glowing and there are plenty of hot toddys to go around. Friends have assembled to talk about the weather, and all the neighborhood "gossip". Now picture this same scene on the other side of the ocean, here in Rhode Island's version of an "Emerald Isle" pub, our very own County Cork Irish Pub in Warwick.
County Cork Irish Pub is an authentic Irish pub which overlooks the sparkling waters of Warwick Cove and which boasts of delicious pub-style food, a cozy ambiance and even live entertainment. County Cork is the brainchild of owner Cora McAuliffe, a native of Ireland, who came here many years ago to fulfill her "American dream". Inspired by the pubs of her homeland, she has created an atmosphere here that can only be described as "the real deal", with all the hospitality and revelry of the pubs that dot the landscape of Ireland.
This winter, County Cork is offering unbelievable bargains on Groupon® - so check them out online. Available for $11.00 is $20 worth of soul-satisfying food, and for $21, you can get $40.00 of food! What are you waiting for?? Grab some friends and come on by - you will surely return time after time.
In addition to these great deals, Cora continues to give back to her community through her Winter Meat Raffle Fundraiser, all of whose proceeds go to the Warwick Veterans Service Organization & the RI Military Organization Youth Academy. The raffle began on Saturday, Jan. 18th and will extend every Saturday through March 29th (excluding March 15th for St. Patrick's Day) from 2:00pm until 5pm. Winners will receive various meats and fresh products from local markets, and will know that they have supported a worthy cause!
County Cork is the perfect destination to come to when seeking refuge from the chill of winter. Pull a stool up to the bar and enjoy a 20 oz. Imperial pour of Guinness while you feast on a heaping platter of fresh seafood or a bowl of steamy hot soup. County Cork is known for its traditional "pub-grub", including their famous burgers, sandwiches, golden Fish & Chips and homemade Chili and cornbread!
