The Roundy Bar is located in the oldest area of Cork and within one of the oldest buildings in Cork. The building is situated in a wonderfully unique building as old as Cork itself. It may be hard to imagine it while you’re sitting outside nowadays, in the busy terrace, but the corner on which the Roundy is situated was once part of a busy medieval market place and, at one point, surrounded by artificial canals instead of laneways.
The Cornmarket, which is now locally known as the Coal Quay, was home to many transient and permanent traders including vintners, cobblers, ship-chandlers and rope makers. Nowadays, the Coal Quay and Castle St remain home to many longstanding traders and form part of the city’s cultural heritage. So call in for a coffee some day and soak up some of the local history of the old market area.
By day, this wonderful small and intimate bar has a relaxed atmosphere that makes it the perfect place for a morning coffee. By night, it transforms itself into a lively night spot with live music and djs. What makes The Roundy bar stand out is not only the fantastic staff but also our famous selection of speciality beers. So why not drop in, take a seat and check us out.
The Roundy bar serves toasted sandwiches, soup, cakes, scones, tea, coffee and has WIFI.
