Franciscan Well Bar
The home of craft beer in Cork City, the Franciscan Well Bar & Brewery is based on the site of a medieval monastery, which was home to the ' holy well' from which our name derives. Our pub boasts an award winning beergarden, our on-site brewery, wood fired pizzeria and our craft cocktail bar, Monk. We stock a wide range of premium beers, spirits, wines and cocktails using local breweries & distilleries, as well as top quality national and international suppliers.
Our unique atmosphere is derived from a mix of the bar's historical setting, the enthusiasm and creative nature of the Brewers, and the diverse crowd - made up of devoted patrons and craft beer lovers mingling with tourists, students and local professionals from Cork’s many international companies.
