A quiet evening at the Pub – Cork, Ireland

 

The Corner House The decor

 
After a great meal in Culinary Cork, we walked the streets enjoying the shops, buildings and of course the pub culture. 
 
The Corner House was recommended by a local to have a more a very relaxed experience in the company of locals.
 

The decor

 The outside tile, creates an colourful invitation of music and artistic talent as one walks into this classic pub.
 
The walls are papered with postcards, bills in many currencies and of varying demoninations. Your curiousities come to life as your eyes run rapid from ceiling to wall.   

Enjoying a Pint of Beamish!

 
 The bartender was quite the chap. He ran a good operation and told us a few stories, as he poured me up a pint of Beamish on a Monday night. This was my Mom’s first night in Ireland and we christened it with local beer in a quiet pub lots of locals dropping in an out for a pint. There were many conversations to be had by all.

Another Pub...one promoting Guinness

Good music, good grub, good company and good drink in a comfortable space. It is time for Rural Newfoundland & Labrador to embrace pub culture. Pubs feel like a local kitchen party, once a common past-time. The local lounge, club and bar should consider adapting to be more generationally friendly, especially with a rural aging population.

 
 Make the pub a social commons, a meeting place to connect communities across generations, sharing stories of today, yesterday and tomorrow.
