Cork , Ireland
Barrack Street is a steep incline, steeped in history. At its apex, the star-shaped Elizabeth Fort dates back to 1601. Since joining this stand-out street in 1984, Tom Barry’s has become firmly established as a Cork institution. Roaring fires, well-poured Guinness and candlelit tables make it a cosy sanctuary in the winter but the pub’s crowning glory is the beer garden. Come summer, grab a bench, order one of its delicious pizzas and hope the rain stays away. A great spot for eavesdropping on local chatter too, bask in the sing-song lilt of it all.
