A pint of Murphy's

What's a good pub in Central Cork for a well-poured Murphy's?

Personally, I’m a Beamish drinker, but I’d assume bars that are good for one are probably good for the other.

You need a bar that is not too busy (there’s nothing worse than a barman rushing a stout pull, whether Murphy’s, Beamish, Guinness or Craft Stout), which isn’t always too easy in the centre. Places to consider are

- Dennehy’s (Cormmarket St)

- Ryan’s (North Main St)

- Pa Johnson’s (Knapp’s Square)

- Cashman’s (Academy St)

I was in Cork the other day like and I met this same feller in several pubs.

Kept bumping into him like.

So we're chatting and I asked him casually the exact same question.

Where's the best pint of Murphs ( hint - it's what the locals call it ) in Cork ?

Ah, he said, flop your glasses and follow me.

We did.

He took us to the Mutton Lane Inn and stood a round of Murphs

It was creamy nectar. A much more subtle flavour than Guinness.

We tarried long into the night with our new pal before eventually he said I must away.

But tell all who ask that Charger Salmons says the Mutton Lane Inn serves the very best pint of Murphy's in Cork.

Love it!

The main advice which I haven't seen here yet, is to let the head settle on the pint before you take it off the counter!
