Good beer, good. Music and meals. Corner of Rory Gallagher the greatest musician of Cork. The Irish stew was delicious and the cottage pie was terrific. It’s a place to go.

We heard a lot of music while in Ireland, but this was honestly about our favorite. It was the right mix of songs you had to have been there to know, coupled with a smattering of nuggets you're liable to have heard at an Irish...More

Very popular bar! We went for dinner and a show- nice service and food was good with large portions. Not high end dining but satisfying. Live music and dancing- very fun.

We are a traditional Irish pub named after the famous Oliver Plunkett street in Cork City. Famous for the atmosphere built on music and dance that has long been a sweet spot for many looking for a great night out. The Oliver Plunkett has the warm hearted feeling of bringing you in at different times of the day for food, drink and a good catch up with friends. Between drinks, take the time to appreciate the quirky historical and current facts about Cork and its history which are dotted throughout The Oliver Plunkett. The walls and ceilings are lined with a collection of old pictures and photos, as well as Irish quotes and other interesting references. The pictures and paintings range from Michael Collins to John F. Kennedy’s visit to Cork in the 60′s, to Rory Gallagher, Tom Barry and Johnny Rotten to name a few. The Pub is full with lines of poems, songs and old Irish so that everywhere you sit in the bar there are interesting things to look at or read.
