Sin e is a cosy pub with the best pint of Guinness that I have drunk in about 2 years. The bar staff were a little distant but efficient. It is located close to Cork City Centre and it has live music most evenings. I recommend it.

Great pub. Lively music from 5.30 on a Sunday when we visited. Very friendly staff and atmosphere. The usual Irish ales and a good range of gin. Go you won't regret it.

Stopped in to visit as a solo traveler in December. Fantastic music, cozy bar, tons of locals to give you advice (drink the Murphy's when in Cork), and a good whiskey selection to choose from. Definitely the best authentic live music pub I went to in Cork.

Called in a couple of times, and this Pub is a small quirky affair. It gives the impression of hanging together with a bit of spit and glue. You would also get the steam cleaner on it, if it was yours, but that is only a small part of the story. The staff are friendly, and the Pub is popular... More

This is a fantastic pub! It's quite small but this only adds to the atmosphere. Lovely welcoming staff and musicians playing Irish music, just perfect for a few drinks on New Year's Day!

I went to the Sin E for live traditional Celtic music. It's a small place, but very comfortable, and friendly. The music was wonderful, even though I couldn't see all of them (as with other Irish pubs, I'm finding), there's a small musicians corner, not a stage). The bartender was jovial, and happily served this non-drinker a ginger ale. Don't... More

One of my favorite pubs in Cork. Great atmosphere, especially nice and cosy place to sit upstairs. Plus they have great music playing always. Totally worth the visit!
