The Shelbourne Bar

The Shelbourne Bar is a sophisticated Irish pub with real traditional values located in the heart of The Victorian Quarter of Cork City since 1895. We boast the largest and best collection of Irish whiskey in the city with over 200 bottlings and are proud to share our knowledge of Irish whiskey with anyone who graces us with their custom.
Having undergone significant renovations recently, abiding by a spirit of restoration rather than merciless reinvention, The Shelbourne Bar’s new look is a real treat for the eyes. We pride ourselves on promoting a bar that is true to traditional Irish values. There’s simple, clever attention to comfort, like the discreet, usb and power points and even brass hooks set low on the bar on which to hang your coat. You will also notice a subtle Victorian theme running through the bar in keeping with theme of the Victorian Quarter on which we reside. Our newly fitted snugs are a huge talking point in The Shelbourne. Traditionally, the snug was where the ladies would sit in Victorian pubs, while men would sit at the bar. We now have two private snugs, a plentiful selection of high stools circling our island bar as well as a shop front fitting to the rear of the bar which is a big hit with our customers from overseas. With over 200 bottles, The Shelbourne Bar boasts the largest and best Irish whiskey collection in Cork City; however, no bottle is neglected. Each Irish whiskey on our shelves displays a handwritten swing-label highlighting all that is special about each individual bottling. For those who walk through our doors with no previous knowledge of Irish whiskey, we serve an array of whiskey boards to meet each individual’s palate and our knowledgeable team will happily provide recommendations on each board to help you with your selection. Should you settle on one particular whiskey, you can bring the bottle to your table and read about its history and tasting notes from our hand crafted Shelbourne whiskey menu. It also makes for a great photo opportunity! If whiskey isn’t your thing we also have a vast gin selection as well as many other spirits that will tickle your taste buds. We also proudly stock a generous selection of locally produced craft beers and ciders if one should choose to try something a little different on their trip. To support this we also serve Floater Boards so as one can sample some of our craft lagers, beers, ciders or stout along with a sample of our Irish Whiskey of the Week. Located on Mc Curtain Street, right next door to The Everyman Theatre, the bar is an ever popular venue for all those attending a performance or show in this well-known venue. We also house multiple screens on which you can watch all the major sporting events.

Profile Description

The Victorian Quarter
The Victorian Quarter of Cork City is comprised of MacCurtain Street and the surrounding area. The Victorian Quarter is beautifully captured in the following quote,
“The eclectic mix of Victorian architecture, early 20th century architecture and broad streets adds to a deep-rooted sense of history, which pulsates through the area creating a unique and quirky mix of bohemian style and old world grandeur. A stroll through the Victorian Quarter offers a glimpse into both the past and the future where the old and new Cork lives harmonising together.”
MacCurtain Street
MacCurtain Street, located on the north side of the River Lee, is named after the Sinn Féin Lord Mayor of Cork, Tomás MacCurtain. Prior to his death on March 20th 1920, the street was known as Kings Street. However, the street has seen many names over the centuries such as Strand Street in the early 1800’s and Lavit’s Buildings prior to that.
“MacCurtain Street – a long neglected treasure, fast becoming the epicentre of Cork’s ongoing epicurean evolution.” (McNamee, 2016)
MacCurtain Street also has a great musical heritage. 27 Mac Curtain Street housed the well-known Irish blues and rock multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, and bandleader, Rory Gallagher, when he stayed with his grandmother and is said to be the location where mastered his first instrument. As well as this, one of Cork’s best known radio stations, 96fm, is in earshot of the street. MacCurtain Street is also a go-to destination during the Cork Guinness Jazz Festival that takes place in October each year.
If the performing arts is something that takes your fancy, our neighbours at The Everyman house some fantastic plays, comedians and other amazingly talented performers (some of which can be found at The Shelbourne unwinding after the show).
There is a variety of restaurants and café’s to be found on MacCurtain Street so you’re bound to find something that tickles your taste buds!
