Cork City has truly embraced the concept of an outdoor summer.

Streets have been pedestrianised, umbrellas put up and blankets laid out, and there are so many gorgeous spots to choose from across the real capital (don't tell anyone from Dublin I said that).

Looking for the perfect al fresco spot for this weekend? To save you traipsing around town or spending ages ringing places up, we've made a list of some gorge spots that are offering outdoor dining and drinks in Cork right now.

Take your pick from the following...
