Every thursday in the student center you could go to a special concert, students of the music school playing instruments and singing. It was really brilliant. If do you prefer to drink a pint of beer with your friends you could go to the "ambrog" or "costigans", in the city center. In Washington Street,I can not remember its name, there was a warm coffee place, ideal to relax with your friends looking the River. Finally, you never must miss seeing the cathedral, the university building, the gardens, the bridges. In summary,you will enjoy walking the Cork streets.

It is difficult to pick out a single pup, night club or cafe as the best due to the fact that there are good numbers of them in Cork. However, I can only suggest based on the few I am familiar with. For instance, Havannas to mine opinion is a good club, whereas Brunos stands out for its night spot activities. Moreover, The Costigans to my knowledge is among the best pups around. The aforementioned observation is just a personal one.

Don't miss the Cork Jazz Festival (I think it's at the end of October). Concerts all over the place, in cafes, bars and pubs, and everything for free (except for the drinks, of course). Favourite places to go: Bars: Reardens (on Washington) and An Borg (on Oliver Plunkett); Nightclubs: Sir Henrys (on Grande Parade) and Gorbys (on Oliver Plunkett); Pubs: The Bodega (on Cornmarket), Rosie O'Gradys (on North Main) and the New College Bar on campus;

In cork there are hundreds of pubs, where you can drink the best irish beer (guiness and murph's), listening nice music. I think the best place are in washington street. Just 1 tips: don't go out to late becouse the pub close at midnight,at the most.

Cork is a typical irish city full of pubs and discopubs. The most popular place for the university students is called "an brog". I went also in many tipycal small pub attended by irish people in general.
