We paid a visit to Cork for St Paddys Day and spent the afternoon and early evening in Reardens on the recommendation of a friend. The atmosphere was excellent, the band was very good and the very bust bar staff were overworked but they could not do enough for everyone. The security and door staff were friendly and had to...

Came here to watch the rugby and got hungry so ordered a cheeseburger. This has got to be the best taste sensation of a burger I have ever had. The fries were also perfectly seasoned, and the Guinness? Exceptional. This place is a must to visit. I'm still here now!!

Never been for food. Tough place to get in at night time unless your female or in your 30s. It's well over rated and planning to meet friends there is a pain because the personality less security are so inconsistent with the reasons they give. I once was refused after a pint and given no reason what so ever. There's... More

I met up with a Friend for lunch recently in Reardans and we had a most enjoyable lunch. We both had a salad sandwich with coffee and they were tasty and delicious. The staff were nice and friendly. It was busy without being too busy for us to have a catch up. It was a very relaxed atmosphere. We will... More

Had a Hawaii pizza and a pint of Irish stout. Best pizza in a long time. The place is split in two. One part has excellent sports screens, the other is more relaxed, and that's my favorite. Reardens Bar is at Washington street about 100 m off Grand Parade, where the National Monument and City Library are located. So it's... More

Lunch with the sandwich club was most divine. The server by the name of Odette was delightful and full of chatter. A lovely lunch and a wonderful service.

I'm a "mature" student :) I love the atmosphere of this place, which in Cork is referred to as where everyone's father met everyone's mother or some such. Food is decent and cheap and trust me it's one of the most laid back and coolest pubs In Cork.

Four of us went in for lunch by chance on the Friday. Really nice décor and the staff were very friendly. Food was very good and good value for money. Decided to go back in the evening as there was live music on. We arrived relatively early (about nine) and the place was very busy but within a few minutes... More

Dropped in last night for a quick jar and to try their Pizza, glad I did. It was about 10pm and was starting to get busy, being a Sunday night. The bar staff were very engaging and friendly. I was drawn to the Pizzeria section of the bar, loved the fit out and again the staff were friendly. When paying,... More
