Twinkling lights; Christmas carols; a hot port warming your hands…
If all that sounds like your dream afternoon, head for the Franciscan Well this weekend.
The lovely elves at Cork’s most atmospheric brewpub have turned their award-winning beer hall into a winter wonderland on the North Mall.
Throughout the month of December, you can enjoy live music, cocktails and hot drinks from the MONK cocktail bar (as well as a new seasonal menu) while you browse the Christmas markets in the beer garden.
The market will continue this Saturday, December 15th from 1pm-6pm, when local artists will be selling original handmade gifts such as hats, cards, ceramic pieces, wooden cheese boards and much more.
Admission is free so stick around for dinner at Pompeii Pizza when you’re finished shopping.
