The Thomond Bar situated in Cork City Centre is an outstanding example of a traditional, well run Irish Pub. We are situated in Marlborough Street just off Patrick Street. Cork City's main shopping street.
Food and Beverage:
All day dining is a top feature of the bar, with a full menu available without interruption from 12 noon to 10m. This is served all day and by romantic candlelight from 6pm. Weather permitting, you may dine outside in the peaceful pedestrianised Marlborough Street.
We extend a sincere welcome to newcomers and regulars alike. First time visitors will understand why the Thomond bar has been showered with awards and rave reviews. Interesting combinations are a distinctive style of our food menus. Traditional Irish fare produced from local farm produce who, we believe, share our passion for the freshest of products. Products which provide the foundation of our much talked about food that is enjoyed all day every day in the bar. Our locally sourced food is served in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. It is the ideal venue for a meal or get-together with friends. The cuisine is traditional Irish with a modern European flavour and the menus feature many traditional Irish dishes such as beef and Guinness stew and Bacon and cabbage as well as Vegetarian Menu option. Our beverage choice is extensive with Beer, wine and spirits from near and far.
Weekends offer something for everyone from live bands, DJ's and karaoke preceded by all sporting events beforehand. Every weeknight at 9:20pm, the Thomond Bar is the venue for a lively traditional Irish ballad music session, which is attended by locals and visitors from all over the world. There is a traditional song from Ireland about 'Digging for gold in the street'. We make sure you don’t have to dig or look very far for this treasure as we work very hard to make The Thomond Bar the gem right in the middle of the City of the Blarney Stone. Warm conversation and cool refreshing drinks are also our speciality. We have an extensive Tourist Information section in the bar to assist you in making your stay both enlightening and entertaining.
