Isaac Bells, Cork
“What? An Irish pub with no Guinness???”,I hear you say. Yep, it’s true: The Abbots Ale House concentrates on selling foreign beer, and the only Irish product they sell will either be local beer or micro-brews like “Rebel Red”. They serve dozens of various beers from all over the world, most importantly from Germany, Belgium or the Czech Republic. Check out their black board for special offers.
If you intend to stay a bit longer in Ireland and maybe even settle down here for a while (especially if you are a non-English language national), the place is also an excellent haunt to hook up with other ex-pats and suss out which company is currently looking for foreign language speakers.
Just beware: Some of their beer can be very strong… up to 10%! Don’t say I didn’t warn you!
