January 25th – Burns Supper Trail
We are big fans of the poetry of Robert Burns here at Cork Heritage Pubs! over the last two years the annual Burn’s supper has proven to be so successful we’ve decided to extend it to a few more of the whiskey loving venues!
On Friday 25th the trail starts in Arthur Mayne’s with poems, haggis, pipers and of course a wee dram or 2!
From there the trail moves to Mutton Lane, The Old Town Whiskey Bar and the final stanza winds up in The Oval which has it’s own distinctly Scottish connection! the venue was custom designed by an Edinburgh-based firm of architects on behalf of the Beamish and Crawford brewery in 1918 and recently celebrated 100 years in business.
