Had a brilliant night in this pub. Amazing trad music I was entertained all night long. The gin collection was so impressive. I will 100% be returning next time I’m in cork.

Recently attended the Beatlebums and Mary Coughlans on two separate occasions. The venue is intimate whether seated of standing and door is well managed. Staff excellent, just a great venue with class acts.

We went here and a bar man with a ginger beard gave me a lollipop. Then he gave me a delicious drink and then I got more lollipops for my auntie beef to look after. I had a go on the stage and did some dancing. The bar man also let me ring the bell before I left. This was a really good pub. I nearly gave it 4 stars because there was no slide but the bar man made up for this as the lollipops were second to none. Arya

Has to be the best bar in cork. Good location, great staff (especially pat) and the gin and whiskey selection is second to none. Music is always great here. Highly recommend

Took a foreign work colleague here who lives whiskey. We heard live music, warmed ourselves by the open fire and had 12 & 15 year old redbreast. Great bar great staff and for me one of the top bars in Cork city.

A warm and welcoming bar, plenty of room outside, under cover, and a great music venue. In the south of the city on Douglas Street, well worth a visit.

After attending the Cork City FC homecoming celebrations, a group of us decided to call to Coughlans in Douglas Street for a celebratory drink. Although the bar was not very busy, there was only one barman on duty and his demeanour and attitude left a lot to be desired.

He really appeared to have a chip on his shoulder and was downright rude to everyone he served. One couple asked what gins he stocked and were answered in an abrupt manner. One of my friends (who works in a bar) asked what wine was available - he didn't engage with her and just pointed to a board. When you call a round of drinks, he does not acknowledge it so you unsure if you order is being filled.

When I was at the gents, I spoke to another customer who agreed that this man has a serious attitude problem. In fact he was described as "an angry man".

On previous visits to Coughlans I enjoyed the atmosphere .... I won't be in any hurry to go back.

The staff is really friendly and available to help you if you have any queries. I organised my team night out last week end, and it was just a dream.
Finger Food and burgers options available, prices are affordable and you feel at home. The bar is full of regulars (and you understand why)...
I recommend this bar, really close to the city centre and great atmosphere, thank you!!!!!!

What a great evening /night we had in Coughlans . We came in for one and lasted the large majority of the evening . The staff were very friendly and professional and it was very hard to find a fault in the entire experience. Will definitely be back again and would highly recommend other punters do the same
