The Oval, Cork

The Oval, Cork

Situated on the corner of South Main and Tuckey Streets, the Oval gets its name from its remarkable oval designed ceiling. One of the most popular pubs in the city of Cork, the Oval was designed for the Beamish and Crawford Brewery, which was formerly located across the street. The bar includes an open pit fire and guests are generally greeted by the smell of whisky and peat. This popular pub offers a variety of music to entertain its guests and sees a good crowd come in, particularly on the weekends, so be sure to arrive early in order to get a spot. Offering a friendly atmosphere with a warm and inviting staff, the Oval is just a great place to hang out and chat with friends, unfettered by the flashiness of many modern bars.
