Reardens bar is known across Ireland as Cork’s Biggest and Best Bar for Live Music, for watching Sporting Events and atmosphere. Conveniently situated on Washington Street, Reardens Bar is the cornerstone of the Washington street strip generating more social activity in one night than most bars can produce in a year.


Reardens Bar has an instant lived in feel, similar to an Old Irish Bar. Its design is understated but very original. The Bar is full of salvaged furniture items including an old theatre pay kiosk, antique light fittings, with cozy mismatching fabric shades on the wall lights, and beautiful detailed pendent lights hanging from the ceilings.

Reardens has a strong focus on Sport especially GAA & Rugby and a lot of time and effort has gone into sourcing old GAA and Rugby match programs and tickets which line the walls. There is also a feature wall displaying carefully sourced hurleys, each with their own story.

This very eclectic and traditional bar is also full of quirky corners and seating areas- everyone has their favorite corner or spot in Reardens Bar.

Free Wi-Fi is also available in the bar.
