For a unique taste of old Cork look no further than the long standing ale house steeped in tradition that is The Mutton Lane Inn.

Named after the long narrow alleyway that was once a pathway for farmers bringing sheep to the Old English Market, the walkway still allows access from Cork's main thoroughfare to the bustling antiquity of the city's famous market.

The public house was originally opened in 1787 by the Ring family where they off loaded their famous moonshine whisky.

The tradition of diverse and exciting brews has been maintained with Swedish cider, German Weissbier and the local black stuff, among many others, all sharing cosy lodgings behind the bar.

The Mutton Lane Inn still has that low-light old-world aura, with lantern lights, slow burning candles, dark wood panelled walls, exposed-beam ceilings and an antique cash register.

As one of Cork's oldest public houses any visit to Cork City is incomplete without a quiet pint at The Mutton Lane Inn.
