Overview

For a friendly and fun stay in the heart of Cork, you'll want to check out Bru Bar and Hostel. We're a sociable bunch ready to give you a warm Irish welcome. We have a pub on the ground floor so you won't have far to go to find the party. If you're staying in the hostel, we'll treat you to discounted drinks and a daily happy hour! You'll get Irish atmosphere in droves with live music seven nights a week, and you can sing for your pint at Open Mic Night every Monday. You'll get free breakfast in the morning, too, so you'll be energised for a day about town.

Location

You’ll find us in the busy St Luke’s neighbourhood amid restaurants, bars and cafés. The 18th century English market is only 11 minutes away on foot, so pick up some local ingredients to cook in our guest kitchen. The Summerhall North bus station is a 2-minute walk from us, so it's super simple to get to Cork Airport. The bus takes about 25 minutes, or you can hop in a taxi for 15.

Rooms and Dorms

Our rooms and dorms are airy and modern, and we clean them every day. Pick a private triple if you’ve got travelling companions, or go for a mixed or single-sex dorm for a cheap bunk amid new friends. Bed linen is included and each bed has a light so you can stay up late without disturbing your bunkmates. You can only access the rooms by card, and your gear will be just as safe in our coin-operated lockers.

Extras and activities

If you're a first timer to Cork and don't know where to start, we can help! Swing by our 24-hour reception to pick up a free city map and get insider tips. Prefer a night in? Stream movies and shows on our free Wi-Fi, play pool, have fun with the Wii or go old-school with a board game in our common room.

    The three of us had a great first time stay at Bru bar Hostel and will certainly be back. The staff are very friendly, the kitchen well supplied and having the bar downstairs with music most nights was fantastic. We were on the first floor and didn't hear a thing from the bar when we went to our room. We highly recommend it as a place to stay in Cork city as it is close to train/bus stations and the city centre.

    Conveniently located. Really close to train station, St. Patrick bridge, and many restaurants and pubs. Rooms are good and comfy, good size mirror, and large mirror in hallway. Kitchen is stocked appropriately, breakfast is good with choices of bread and cereal. Well worth the $$.

    It was grand. I needed accessible and financially reasonable accommodation at really short notice. This ticked all the boxes and made it easy to book.

    We booked here last minute and there weren’t many options for stays in Cork this night, so I didn’t have much time to check out the previous reviews to know what we were booking. Overall the room was fine, the bedding was nice and the staff were very friendly. We didn’t mind it being over a bar and never heard any noise from it. We weren’t very fond of the location as it felt a bit sketchy, but nothing happened and we didn’t leave after dark. 46 yr old traveller and 18 yr old traveller.

    If you are planning a early bedtime. Forget it. You are staying above a bar with loud music and laughter right below you. Not too mention the beer keg toss after hours on Thursday morning that seemed to go on for ever. Bouncing kegs outside. Staff was nice and room was clean. Problem was staff was torn between being Bartenders and Hostel Reception. Some waited for a beer while some waited to check in. May want to skip this one if ypu are looking for rest and security.
