Cork for Foodies

Cork for Foodies

Foodies won't feel out of place in Cork, as the city offers cuisine from all over the world. Fans of locally brewed beer and hearty, home-cooked food should look no further than Elbow Lane Brew and Smokehouse. Offering an array of house beers and mouth-watering mains cooked to precision set against a stylish, intimate backdrop, this is the perfect place to refuel after a day exploring. For lighter fare, try Gallo & Galetti in Bishopstown. Offering contemporary Italian cuisine made with the best local produce, this popular spot is the brainchild of multi-award winning chef Brendan Cashman. For lunch, we recommend stopping off at the English Market and picking up a bite to eat. Located off Grand Parade, this covered market is not only worth a visit for the range of produce, but also for the building itself.
