Cork City Pub Crawl

Cork Local Pubs – Cork City Nightlife – Cork, Ireland

irish alcohol drinks

The most popular alcoholic beverage that comes to mind worldwide when people think of Ireland is of course, Guinness.  However, many locals in Ireland actually drink Bulmers Irish Cider.  Outside of Ireland, the cider is named Magner’s, which is exactly the same beverage, but just given a different name.  So if you end up falling in love with Bulmer’s on your next vacation or holiday to Ireland, you should be searching in your local shop for Magner’s.

The Cork City Pub Crawl will have two different evening tours to choose from.  If you want something early evening, short and conservative, this might be the tour for you.  The shorter evening tour will last around four hours in length.

However, if you are wanting to go the distance, and do the full evening into the early morning hours, then our eight hour tour would be just for you.  The full evening tour is not meant for the weak, but for the more adventurous that wants to go for a long session to see where the evening takes them. parnell place bus station

Our pub crawls are not set in stone as far as which bars or how many bars to see and experience.  Upon meeting your tour guide, you will then express your interest in what types of venues you are most interested in seeing.   If you want a variety of small intimate places, dance clubs, or just a corner hole in the wall, your tour guide will piece together the perfect evening for you and your guests.  If you are wanting to just jump from one pub to another, that can be arranged as well.  Maybe you end up at a particular pub or dance club and you are having a great time, you can decide to stay at that location for the rest of the evening if you wish to.

If you have decided to pass on going to a chipper for the last hour of your pub crawl, then your tour guide will take you to the nearest good local Kebab shop.  This is Turkish food, and they have an assortment of open face sandwiches on pita bread and meats like beef, chicken, lamb, etc.  They come with mixed veggies and sauces on top, and are an outstanding late night meal after a night of drinking and partying.

Both of our pub crawls last stop is at your choice of a chipper or kebab shop.  Once that hour is up, the tour is considered over and complete.  At this time, is when you say your goodbyes to your local tour guide(s).

Also, feel free to ask your tour guide what is the best way for you to get back to your hotel or next destination.  He or she can advise on calling a taxi, or other transportation options to suggest for you.
