The Brew Pub of Franciscan Well boasts one of the best beer gardens in Cork City. Covered, heated and comfortable the beer garden is steeped in history. The Franciscan "Well" itself is still flowing today and the Brew Pub is based on the site of an ancient franciscan monastery, and later the centre of Guinness bottling for the people of Cork.

The Brew Pub has an extensive range of craft beers, ales, lagers and stouts and houses three 300gl serving vessels located directly behind the bar which dispense our beer to the taps. The bar also offers beers from further afield from other Irish and international micro breweries. In addition to serving their award winning craft Beers, the Brew Pub also offer food 7 nights a week including their hugely popular pizzas prepared in their famous wood burning pizza oven in the Brew Pub by traditional local Pizza company Pompei Pizza.

The Brew Pub’s unique atmosphere is derived from a mix of its historical setting, the enthusiasm and creative nature of the Brewers, and the diverse crowd - made up of devoted patrons and craft beer lovers mingling with tourists, students and local professionals from Cork’s many international companies.
