The Shelbourne Bar

The Shelbourne Bar is a traditional Irish pub opened in 1895. It is renowned for its friendly staff and great service.
The Shelbourne Bar is a traditional Irish pub, which opened its doors in 1895. It was originally two bars of equal size, divided by a pillar which you can still see in the middle of the bar counter. Up until 1996 the side of bar where the fireplace resides was called ‘An Síol Broin’, which translates from Irish to mean the ‘seed of the womb’ or the ‘seed of life’. In 1999 the two bars merged, creating one bar now known as The Shelbourne Bar. Here at The Shelbourne Bar we have an extensive selection of draft beers, bottled beer, ciders, spirits, wines and whiskeys, so you can choose your personal favourite or try something a bit different! We also offer table service, free WIFI to all customers; we have outdoor seating and a heated smoking area with a great view of The Victorian Quarter on which we reside. 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 two screens on which you can watch all the major sporting events. During the working week we cater for a busy lunch trade with a selection of sandwiches, toasties, wraps, baguettes, salads and soup of the day. We like to support local and should you feel peckish in the evening hours or at the weekends our friends at The Fish Wife and Novecento will deliver straight to you at The Shelbourne Bar; fulfilling all your fish and chips, burgers and pizza desires. The bar is no stranger to tourists, with thousands of visitors travelling to Cork’s Premier Jazz Venue for The Cork Jazz Festival each year! The Shelbourne Bar also caters for parties and events and we even throw in free finger food for all those booked in advance! Whether you want to enjoy the great pub atmosphere, catch the game, find a quiet corner for yourself or cosy up next to our open fire, The Shelbourne Bar will make you feel right at home.

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.”
The partnership between the MacCurtain Street traders and Cork City Council has led to the ongoing success of the Victorian Quarter. With 35 different languages regularly spoken in the Quarter, you’re guaranteed to feel welcome.
Fun Fact: 75,000 balls of wool are sold in the Victorian Quarter each year – more than the distance from Cork to Australia!

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!
