Cask in Cork has been named as the Bar of the Year at the recent Bar of the Year Awards.

Since opening in February 2017 on MacCurtain Street in Cork city, the venue has proven to be extremely popular due to its original and innovative cocktail menu.

Award-winning cocktail consultant ​Andy Ferreira​ has helped to shape the menu and their cocktails are based around ingredients that grow in Ireland.
