A new pub opens this week with an outdoor courtyard and a stage for trad sessions
The doors open this Thursday.
Named after the Irish Revolutionary and a senior official of the GAA, Cork’s newest pub, J.J. Walsh’s will be welcoming customers at 64 Oliver Plunkett Street from 6pm.
The new bar is the fifth addition to the portfolio for the Clancy’s Group, the folks behind Clancy’s Cork, Atlas, An Sibín, and Conway’s Yard.
Located in what was The Grafton Bar, the venue has undergone a multi-million euro refurbishment to create an old-time, authentic pub that has been decked out with historical artifacts including original photographs and documents of Walsh’s time, along with pieces commemorating Cork City and the GAA.

Interestingly, Walsh was married to Sheila Turner, one of the original proprietors of Turner’s Hotel, which opened on the site during the 1910s.
Inside, there will be three bars including a stylish cocktail lounge and an outdoor courtyard bar, covered by a canopy to make the most of the Irish weather.
With a new stage and dance floor, the venue will also play host to live music including regular trad sessions.
“A hearty menu will also be revealed later this week, featuring ingredients sourced from the English Market – merely steps away.” a spokesperson told us.
