Hi-B Bar, Cork

Hi-B Bar, Cork

Run by the O’Donnells since 1924, the Hi-B Bar is tucked away upstairs on the thriving Oliver Plunkett Street. This elegant little bar regularly entertains its guests with jazz and opera music, for a change of pace from the rowdier pubs found in Cork. Friendly locals can be found here, as well as its enigmatic owner Brian O’Donnell. The décor is decidedly old-fashioned with lots of interesting details that for an almost surreal picture of an Irish bar. Regulars have been known to sing a traditional Irish tune or two every once in a while, and the Hi-B is also known to be welcoming to newcomers to the bar.
