I regularly call to the marine bar when i am in the area. Most of the time i am lucky to find a music session. Never disappointed.

Great, drinks, music, singing and a pizza to kill the hunger. A lovely spot just a few miles outside Dungarvan on the Cork road. Anytime after eight pm. I don't think you will be disappointed.

This small & quaint bar was such a lovely stop during our tour. We all got a drink and the gentleman who played the guitar who used to tour with the Calarney Brothers has us singing along to some tunes. He was fairly funny ripping/joking...More

Christy and Helen are remarkable people. When we arrived on foot after eating down the street, they were closing. When we asked if they were still open, they welcomed us in and served us for almost two hours. Not only did we get great drinks,...More
