English Market, Cork Reviews - Write a Review

  • The best place in city center to find fresh and genuine food. You gotta pay a little extra for quality though. Fish is particularly expensive . Unfortunately it seems that hygiene is not a priority though. Be careful.

  • If you like fresh markets you'll like this place. Plenty of fresh meat, seafood and produce. For tourists who aren't able to cook, there's bakeries and cafes and sandwiches you can pick up for quick bites as well as a couple souvenir things. Prices are reasonable and not overly inflated.

  • Great market selling stuff you cannot get anywhere else in cork. I don’t know why there are so many tourists as they usually don’t cook themselves! You can also use it as a shortcut as there are multiple entrances connecting parts of the city center. Great during rainy days 😊

  • Visited on Tuesday: it is a charming market, a little small compared to others I have visited, but nonetheless a pleasant visit. The market was not crowded when I visited, and the selection of meats is a sight to behold. A couple of bakery and cake shops are also present, and the chocolate shop in particular looked extremely tempting. Upon recommendation, I had some grilled sausages and potatoes which was fabulous and whetted my appetite.

  • A Foodies Paradise.. Fresh local produce for all your eating requirements sold in a historic market. Nice cafes also with an award winning restaurant upstairs which has an overview of the market.
