Now, please treat this tip with the respect it deserves. I am inviting you onto hallowed ground. There is a place in Cork where you will hear the best of traditional music played. But you are not to clap along or bring your bodhrán!! Just go to listen and imbibe the finest music and drink. On the first Friday of the month, from 6.30pm to 9pm, in The Corner House this session takes place. Forget it during the summer!
Dress Code: No Aran sweaters. No tweed caps. No leprechaun hats.
There are plenty of pubs in Cork, dedicated to all different tastes. In recent years Dublin has had a reputation as an expensive city, but by comparison Cork is reasonably priced even in the city centre bars. Throughout my time in the city I stuck to drinking Guinness as it's pure silk in a glass compared to the crap we get in England. The cheapest pint I managed to find was 3.00 euros and dearest was 3.80 euros. A euro at the time of writing was worth about seventy odd pence.
Since the introduction of the euro there has been some real horror stories, but as prices go in the modern world these weren't that bad at all.
If you go to Cork make sure you try a pint of Murphys. Murphys is a stout that is brewed locally in Cork. It is similar looking to Guinness but isn't as commercialised. Every pub in Cork sells it. Pub like the Hi-B, The Old Oak, Reardions are good pubs to go to. If you're still standing at closing time then there are clubs open every night of the week. After clubbing usually the urge of food proves to irrestible. Don't worry you won't have to starve! Take a trip to Lennox's or Hill Billies and you'll be sorted with grub. Enjoy!!!!
Don´t forget to visit one of the numerous pubs all around the town. Cork is home of the famous Murphys beer, which is brewed here. It is a dry stout beer in Ireland and is not as bitter as the popular Guniness beer.
Cork is a very bust night spot area, with a choice of bars and clubs to die for. You can not go wrong, just head for St patrick st, and you will find a nite spot for you..

Cork clubs are smarty dressed.
find a pub and go drink some Guiness...its good for ya!
we sat in a pub to watch American football, whereupon an old Irish gentleman asked to sit with us and be taught what was going on. as the night went on we shared stories and Guiness. Eventually he demanded that we let him take us out on the town, and so we did. He led us across town to a small club with music and we danced the night away. The Irish are great people!
There are many pubs bars and clubs in Cork.But the best club in Cork in my opinion is The Savoy.The music here is R&B,hip hop,dance and there is also a live band up stairs.Very stylish club!!
Other clubs are Maas,Fast Eddies,Havana Browns,Cubins.
It can hold a capacity of about 3000 people,very laid back and it seems as if anything goes in side there.Beautiful club with beautiful people!!

Full of hot studly students from nearby U.C.C., the Quad plays great indie music and serves cheap drink - which is all I ever ask from a pub.
