About Us

Established in 1901,
The White Horse is one of Cork’s oldest public houses, run for many years by Mamie Murphy, the sister of Commandant Leo Murphy, one of the founders of the 3rd Battalion.
In 2009 Joe and Maura Carey took over The White Horse and it continues to be one of Cork’s finest establishments serving locally produced, high-quality food daily and a range of beers, stouts, spirits and wines.
We offer an extensive lunch and dinner menu with our focus being on providing #WorldClassLocal food at affordable prices.

Current Lockdown Update
Unfortunately at the moment The White Horse doors are closed in accordance to current COVID-19 regulations. But we are very happy to say our Click & Collect Service is still available!
We will keep you updated with any changes.

Had a fantastic meal here. We rang quite late, as we weren't happy with service in our hotel. The bar staff were very accommodating and friendly. Food was absolutely delicious. I had the chicken supreme with chorizo, and my wife had chicken burger. Nicest dish I've had in a long time. Well worth a visit. .. beer was top notch too
