Putting on those walking shoes and explore Cork City!

Anyone that has had the chance to travel and explore some of the world’s most magnificent cities will tell you that there’s no better way to discover what a place has to offer than by taking to its streets and doing as the locals do.

Cork’s pedestrian-friendly city centre is no different with cobbled, historic streets crisscrossing naturally with the modern thoroughfare that is St. Patrick’s Street and its surrounds.

One way to enjoy the city, and save yourself money at the same time, is to visit one of the venues involved in Cork Beer Walks, pick up a map to guide yourself around its inner core and take advantage of over €100 worth of handy vouchers and special offers.

The idea is simple, and if you’ve been in any of Europe’s big cities, you’ll know what to do. First, take a deep breath and relax. Whether you’re on a city break or a longer holiday, it’s time to enjoy the best pubs, clubs, food and shopping that Cork has to offer.

The Cork Beer Walks map is available from any of the main venues and establishments involved, including Sin É, Mutton Lane Inn, The Oval, The Crane Theatre, Bodega, Vicarstown Bar, Black Dog Saloon & Mezcaleria, 6ix, El Fenix, The Poor Relation Grocery & Pub, Arthur Mayne and the recently-opened Rising Sons Brewery and Rising Sons Brewpub.

The map outlines all the must-see pubs and clubs in Cork city, which is cool, but – even more importantly – also lets you know of all the special offers (2 for 1 cocktails at BDSM or Taco Tuesday in 6ix) to avail of – no matter what day or night of the week you have. What’s not to like when you’re new in town? And no better research than easy research right?

If it’s live music you’re after, the map highlights Sin É and its trad music sessions along with the Crane Lane Theatre if old skool bands and musicians are more in your line.

For brunch, lunch or a tasty evening meal, there’s no better spot than The Bodega which continues to earn rave reviews for its A la Carte menu – particularly as it’s created using only the finest local, quality ingredients. Check out bodegacork.ie for details of the menus themselves as well as the monthly Bodega offers that will always be nice to your pocket 🙂

Arthur Mayne’s is perfect for a glass of wine and meat & cheese platter, before dancing the night away in the Vicarstown Bar or BDSM (if grunge, rock and alternative that floats your boat) or supping a local craft beer in the Mutton Lane Inn or The Oval.

And that’s the real secret of Cork Beer Walks: no matter what walk of life you’re from and no matter what you’re looking for from your visit to Leeside, the map has you covered!
