Outdoor dining in Cork is the new normal as, just like everywhere else in Ireland, the county gets used to level 3 Covid-19 restrictions.
While the rules couldn't really have come at a worse time (who wants to sit outside in October?), right now outdoor dining in Cork is the only option for people who want to catch up with friends or just get outside of the house.
To save you traipsing around town or spending ages ringing places up, we've made a list of some of the spots that are offering outdoor dining in Cork during these strange times.
Take your pick from the following...
The Shelbourne Bar
Tara's Tea Room
A lovely little spot that we had the pleasure of visiting over the summer. Read our review here.
Tedo Tapas Bar
Another gem we got to visit recently. Have a look at what we thought here.
The Long Valley
River Lee Hotel
Good Day Deli
