Established in 1759 The Oval bar on Cork's historic South Main Street has been serving Corkonians their due for over two hundred and fifty years and looks like it will continue to do so until the end of time.

While revolutions raged and new countries were born The Oval bar has overseen it all, standing firm against the test of time as one of the city's oldest and most endearing public houses.

To complete the ultimate 'Oval experience' one needs to slug on a cold creamy pint of stout in the snug on a warm summer's evening or sip a delicious hot port in front of the roaring fire on a blustery winter's night. Good tunes, good pints and good people.
