I really love this place. For me, the Franciscan Well beers are the best in town and combined with their artisan pizzas, this makes the best place to gather with your friends to spend the evening. Pizzas are fresh made and customized just for you. The beer garden is a nice place to spend the evening, especially in summer!

Nice pub. Large smoking area out the back. They do good pizza here. Good selection of craft beers. They don't cater for the mass produced beers so you are kinda goosed if you like mainstream beer. Staff friendly. There are a few cosy snooks for couples to enjoy their own space. Lighting levels are low at the inner bar. Restrooms... More

My husband and I went on recommendation from a friend who had been there one year prior. Our GPS took us walking through the park by the college which we quickly realized at dark was not the best option (elementary aged children in the park drinking/smoking and yelling out at us on the walk), but once we go to this...

Well established but - with freshly made Pizza on site. There used be a greater selection of craft beers here at one time and the Copper vats still visible. A terrific meeting spot and a great place for a gang meetup! Friendly, good humoured staff and the -- PIZZA ---- the BEST in Cork!!

We also got talking to a couple from North Carolina, a... More

We had a quick beer here. The atmosphere was lovely and the beer very tasty! They do food here but we didn't eat here as we already had plans. The food we saw coming out looked great though, mainly pizzas.

A wide selection of beer is available from light lager to creamy stout. Fran well is known to host the biggest beer fests in town. The pizza is affordable and one of the best, beats the expensive pizzas you buy in fancy restaurants. Fran well is always the first stop for friends who visit Cork :)
