Cork's Oyster Tavern Wins Vintners Federation Of Ireland Award
The Oyster Tavern has kicked off 2018 with a bang by scooping the ‘Best Cork Vintners Federation of Ireland Pub’ award.

The two-storey city centre venue beat off tough competition on the Cork social scene to be crowned winners at the Cork Business of the Year Awards, which took place on Saturday night (January 20) in Pairc Uí Chaoimh. The awards recognise the outstanding contribution of businesses and individuals working across varied sectors of business in Cork.

The 18th century bar underwent a €1.5 million transformation last year - an investment that came from new owner Alan Clancy, who also owns House, 37 Dawson Street and The Oak in Dublin, as well as House in Limerick, the Amber Club, and House in Belfast, which opened last week.

Speaking about the win, Jerry Harrington of The Oyster Tavern said, “We are so thrilled to win this award, we have worked hard to bring something new and different to Cork and are delighted that this has been recognised with this award. We worked hard to get the right mix between our food offering, our late nights, and our atmosphere, and it’s great to see that it’s working.”
