They will be sorely missed.
West Cork Burger Company announced yesterday evening that due to circumstances outside of their control, they have been forced to close their doors immediately and cease trading.
In a goodbye post on social media, the company confirmed that the lease on their Washington St. location was up and was not able to be renewed.
“We’ve been on an absolutely amazing journey these last few years. But it was only possible because of you, the people of Cork! We could not have done anything without you. From the very bottom of our hearts, we truly want to wish the best to every single customer who supported us along the way,” the post read.
While the restaurant is now “closed indefinitely,” they did note that there could be other opportunities in the future.
“Unfortunately right now, we are closed indefinitely. However the world is filled with ups & downs and twists & turns. Nobody truly knows what the next chapter might bring.
“We ask that you stay following this page because if we have any updates in the future, they will be posted here.”
Asked in the comments about their presence at festivals, the restaurant replied: “We’ll see what the future brings.”
