Music, dancing and a healthy measure of Irish whiskey await in the fine and lively city of Cork when the sun goes down. You and your stags will settle into the rhythm of Cork nightlife in no time, as the city is piled high with a wide variety of cosy pubs and bars which welcome every guest with a generous dose of good, old-fashioned warm Irish hospitality. Evenings buzz with life throughout the week and at the weekends. Cork nights really do present a fantastic alternative if you're tired of big, bland, busy superclubs in the UK's major cities and are looking for something with a big wallop of personality and the opportunity to really soak up the local culture, rather than endless vodka shots although it's certainly no secret that the Irish are partial to a drink or two!
The music scene in Cork is truly fantastic and takes a step away from the Top 40 and relentless club beats which you can expect to hear in most bars and clubs in the vast majority of cities. If you consider yourselves real music fans, then Cork nightlife is most certainly for you, as the bohemian, Indie vibe which the whole city has on tap is reflected in the alternative tunes which frequently haunt the airwaves and play live by local bands. If you're looking for a warm welcome, Cork's the place to be. Getting some booked activities sorted for your group is the ideal way to kick off your night and get everybody in the mood to party it's never easy to find your way around a brand new city, so having something sorted before you go makes sure that everyone is able to stay stress-free, happy and even more ready to stitch up the stag!
There's plenty on offer for Cork nightlife, but here's our top 5 to get you started…
Cork is one of the best places in the whole of Ireland to see some quality greyhound racing. Sit down and enjoy a three course meal right next to the action and cheer the dogs on in style. If you wish to make a bet, there's a handy table-side betting service which means that you needn't get up from your seats to put money on your most profitable mutt! Greyhound racing is one of the finest ways to get your stag do started and makes for a really unique choice and there's even the opportunity to set up a sponsored race for your stag to make the evening extra special. Don't let your stag do go to the dogs book up a greyhound racing evening!
Get a taste of what's to come and kick your Cork nightlife experience off with a night at one of the city's best comedy clubs. Enjoy laughs from some of the biggest and best funny men and women around and maybe even a tasty meal and some drinks at the same time. Of course simply walking into a comedy club is pretty simple, but we'd recommend booking up with us before you head to Cork, as bouncers and ticket salespeople often don't look too fondly on large groups of stags especially if you've all decided to go for neon mankinis… Whilst we can't account for any rowdy behaviour, we can get it sorted for you and your mates to enjoy a night at the club laughing it up with the resident comics guaranteed. Watch out for heckling though comedians are renowned for picking on stag groups!
A trip to the casino is a really indulgent addition to any one of our Cork nights. Get your poker face out and hold on to your wallets as you and the boys take a spin on the roulette wheel, get flushed with success (hopefully) at the poker table and give blackjack a try too. Gambling isn't just for Vegas Cork knows how to do it well too. Dress to impress in tuxedoes or suits and make it a night to remember with swanky drinks from the bar and maybe even a few more if you manage to play your cards right!
There could hardly be a better way to get from A to B than in the back of a big, white limousine. It's the perfect way to travel in style from hotel to club to activity and really gives your Cork nightlife experience the edge. Make like VIPs and enjoy a complimentary glass of bubbly whilst being driven around town by your own personal chauffeur and wave to the mortals outside on the street or in their puny, ordinary-length cars...
Even busy, hard-partying stags need to eat and what better way to do it than in one of Cork's finest restaurants with a pre-paid bill to save faffing around at the end of your meal? A relaxed evening at a restaurant is one of our top recommended ways to kick off Cork nights as it's a great opportunity to get everyone well acquainted with one another and of course to line the stomach ready for what might just be one of the biggest nights of your lives!
