‘As always we are delighted to be bringing innovation to the forefront of what we do here. This will be Ireland’s first ever Espresso Martini festival and we are delighted to have Three Fools coffee on board as our coffee partner’ says Kate Clancy, marketing manager of Franciscan Well Brewpub & MONK. 

We will also be using local spirit providers such as Jameson, West Cork distillers, Kinsale Rum and to top it off some cocktails will be paired with local chocolate from David the Chocolatier in the English Market’ continues Kate

Monk Cocktail bar opened its doors above the Franciscan Well brewpub in 2017. It’s known for making its own bitters and beer syrups, and was nominated for Best Cocktail Bar at the Sky Bar Awards this year.
This festival will also kick start a new phase of exciting times ahead for MONK, as they introduce their first beer - a Coffee Stout in collaboration with Three Fools Coffee. 
Throughout the coffee, spirit & stout focused weekend, festival goers will be able to take part in workshops & demos such as ‘How to Make an Espresso Martini’, Stout tastings, Coffee Brewing Demos and much more.
A full list of events, menus & stout details will be available on the Franciscan Well Brewpubs & Three Fools Café Facebook pages in the coming weeks.

Cork Indie Coffee Trail. A Guide by Dermot O’Sullivan

Cork Indie Coffee Trail
A Guide by Dermot O’Sullivan
So (seems to be the word to start with these days), you’re in Cork, looking for a cup of real coffee. You know there are some terrific indie cafés around the city. But do you know where they are? Where is ORSO? Where is Nectar Coffee?

Just mentioned this pair as they feature in the first page of the Indie Coffee Trail, a new guide (with directions) by local chef Dermot O’Sullivan, perhaps best known to many of you as @GasMarkSeven on Twitter. ORSO, by the way, is in Pembroke Street, close to the GPO while Nectar sits on the junction of Maylor Street and Parnell Place.

Dermot’s selection showcases “the best of what Cork city’s coffee scene has to offer”.  The cafés have added “another element to the cultural dimension of the city, forgotten buildings have been brought back to life… All the while, locals and visitors alike are becoming more knowledgeable and discerning with their coffee of choice”.

Other coffee haunts listed by Dermot included Dukes Coffeehouse, Filter Espresso & Brew Bar and its new little sister Portafilter, Union Grind, The Bookshelf, Idaho, Warren Allen, Alchemy, Cork Coffee Roasters (at two venues), Ali’s Kitchen, Rocket Man and Rocket Man East, Farmgate, Three Fools and Café Gusto (also two locations)

And there is a map of the city centre indicating where each can be found. A brief description of each café and the type of coffee available and also opening hours is included in the handy pocket sized booklet. And you are also told whether Wifi is available!

What are you waiting for? Hit the streets and discover Cork City’s coffee with Dermot’s help. You can get his guide in all tourist spots like tourist offices, hotels, most cafes listed, art galleries including UCC. Student centres too.
