It’ll be a weekend to remember.
As thousands of Ed Sheeran fans from all over the world land in Cork this weekend for the first three concerts of his Irish tour, there’s a new buzz on the city’s streets.
The singer songwriter’s loyal fanbase have booked up most of the city’s hotels, B&Bs and hostels and will be soaking up the pre-gig atmosphere in Cork’s busy bars and restaurants throughout the bank holiday weekend.
For fans looking to take home a special memento of #EdCork, on of the city’s most famous pubs is supporting local artist Vincent Zara by selling his special ‘CorkEd’ prints throughout the weekend.
Featuring an artist’s take on the 27-year-old star’s famous ginger hair and glasses, the prints are signed and include the dates of this weekend’s performances, making them an ideal gift for Ed fans.

The Castle Inn, run by the O’Donovan family at 99 South Main Street since the 1930s, will have the prints available for customers for €15 behind the bar – the ideal excuse for a pint of creamy Murphy’s while you’re there.
