For the finest selection of beer, lager and stout in Cork
The Franciscan Well Brewery was founded in 1998 on the North Mall in Cork City and is built on the site of an old Franciscan Monastery and Well, dating back to the year 1219. Legend has it that the water from the well has miraculous and curative properties and people would come from afar to drink from it.
The Brewery has combined modern technology with old age tradition in forming classic beer styles including lager, ale, stout and wheat beer. All the beers brewed at the Franciscan Well are natural, and do not contain any chemical additives or preservatives and are made with the best ingredients.
The Brewpub houses three serving vessels located directly behind the bar which dispense our beer to the taps. The tanks, which holds 300gl each, offer the beer drinker a unique setting in which to enjoy our craft brewed beer.
