cork's best pub for traditional irish music

It was our first night in Ireland, and it’d been a very long day—after a mostly sleepless flight to a 3 hour drive down to Cork that seemed to last forever, we were beat. But I’d read about this cozy pub that was a few blocks from our bed and breakfast that had live traditional Irish music every night. We couldn’t pass up the chance to check it out, being our only night in Cork and all. So, we stopped by the oub, Sin e.

we made the right decision. Despite the fatigue, the music and atmosphere of the pub re-energized our spirits.

The pub was packed, but we found a cozy corner to squeeze into that gave us a view directly toward the table where the musicians were playing.
