Watching rugby in a rugby club in Cork City

I've been googling and have come up with two choices - Cork Constitution which is closest to us or the one that Dolphin & Sundays Well play at Musgrave Park or do they have their own clubhouses ?

Cork Con are a brilliant rugby club. Go see them play if you can. www.corkcon.ie

Donncha O'Callaghan (Munster, Ireland and Lions player) played a lot of his rugby here.

Highfield is the most convivial and visitor- friendly club in town.

And you can drop into the Rendezvous on the corner for lunch on the way up.

May the best team win.

Both Sundays Well & Dolphin have their own clubhouses within Musgrave Park.

Bean after some 30 years in rugby I have come to the conclusion that Con are actually a political party as opposed to a rugby club.

If you decide against going to a rugby club, The Rob Roy Bar might make a good alternative. It was a rugby pub long before rugby was fashionable and always has a good knowledgable crowd.

Religion, fashion, politics... who knows??? They certainly are obsessed!

I can never seem to get my flickr links to work properly :-(

Lolly, that house is great fun. They have a lot of different themes. When Munster are playing the red flags are out but come down and see it over the Europeans and I'll be you'll see green jerseys and footballs.

In the Church my mother attends, they sing rugby songs/anthems at the end of mass when the local team is doing well!!

Any time I go into Temple Hill, there's two men and a dog. And one of those is the barman. If you drive down Pearse Road, the lights are off in Musgrave. There's more life in the Tory Top.

I played with Frank, and understand Limerick. But the OP, want's a club in Cork.
