The Shelbourne Bar is a sophisticated Irish pub in Cork City with an authentic traditional atmosphere.
Nestled in the heart of The Victorian Quarter of Cork City since 1895, it is renowned for its welcoming and knowledgeable staff, great service and extensive Irish whiskey offering of over 200 bottlings – the largest and best collection in Cork!
We have two cosy, private snugs at the front of the bar and a plentiful selection of high stools circling our central island bar that you can see from every angle of the room, in fact you are close enough to call out your order. The understated, lived-in look is well and truly lived in by both regulars and visitors who want traditional comfortable surroundings with a touch of class. From the darkened wood interior and glowing cabinets laden with Irish whiskey to the timeless photographs and memorabilia filling the walls and the iconic shop front fitting to the rear of the bar; The Shelbourne Bar transcends time.
Located next door to one of Cork’s oldest theatres, The Everyman, The Shelbourne Bar is an ideal location to stop off before or after a show. Should you find yourself docked in the Port of Cork for the day, be sure to pay us a visit and tell us about your travels. If you’re in search of a match, light bite, or just some good quality conversation; we’ve got it all. And with our large open fire burning in the colder months, The Shelbourne will make you feel right at home!
