Awful fish if it was fish. I love it, but this was disgusting! The day before we had lunch which was alright. The pub as such is very nice!

My boyfriend and I had dinner at Oliver Plunkett, we chose a steak baguette and a stew with 2 small beers. Portions are abundant and the food is very tasty. We really enjoyed the live music. We payed 40 euro.

Description
We are a traditional Irish pub named after the famous Oliver Plunkett street in Cork City. Famous for the atmosphere built on music and dance that has long been a sweet spot for many looking for a great night out. The Oliver Plunkett has the warm hearted feeling of bringing you in at different times of the day for food, drink and a good catch up with friends. Between drinks, take the time to appreciate the quirky historical and current facts about Cork and its history which are dotted throughout The Oliver Plunkett. The walls and ceilings are lined with a collection of old pictures and photos, as well as Irish quotes and other interesting references. The pictures and paintings range from Michael Collins to John F. Kennedy’s visit to Cork in the 60′s, to Rory Gallagher, Tom Barry and Johnny Rotten to name a few. The Pub is full with lines of poems, songs and old Irish so that everywhere you sit in the bar there are interesting things to look at or read.
