Excellent - best in Cork

Wonderful bar with a great atmosphere, lovely staff and welcoming patrons (locals). A must visit in Cork. Daily trad sessions make it the perfect Irish pub experience.

Odd though it may sound, my evening at this venerable pub took me back to Austin in the 1970s. With live music every night of the week, Sin E is a place where musicians playing traditional Irish music come to jam and maybe be discovered.

The hotel recommended this place for a great local session. We were. It disappointed. We showed up on a Tuesday for the early session and we're treated to 2:30 worth of amazing music. Nice cozy place!

Great atmosphere especially when there's live music on. A small group of people just sat in the corner playing their instruments and attracted quite a crowd. Excellent evening. Interesting/quirky decor inside added to the atmosphere.

Enjoyed the nights in here with the live music. There also is a good selection of drinks. With it been a small bar you feel part of it

If you like pubs with great character this is a must visit if you are in Cork. We were in Cork for a day, called in for a quick one in the afternoon and were blown away with the atmosphere and music memorabilia. For us the beer and music were the draw but I think there is a lot more... More

This was such a great find during our time in Cork. The music was amazing - we wished we could have spent more time here.

Sin e is a cosy pub with the best pint of Guinness that I have drunk in about 2 years. The bar staff were a little distant but efficient. It is located close to Cork City Centre and it has live music most evenings. I recommend it.
