May Bank Holiday Cork City Brunch Options

Last week, we asked local food beacons for their May bank holiday hours and this is what we learned. Some serve lunch, not brunch, but I’ve listed them as well because options are good when dining out on a holiday weekend.

UPDATE: I’ve created a Google Doc list of all Cork City restaurants which offer brunch (or brunchy breakfasts) so I can keep it updated more easily. There is a dedicated Brunch in Cork page on this blog so check it out for the most up-to-date restaurant information and hours.

The list in this post was accurate as of May 2015.

These hours are for this weekend ONLY. For updated hours, check with these places or our main list of brunch spots by day of the week.
