They also produce some wonderful seasonals and small-batch brews, all of which are available – along with some outstanding pizza! – from their North Mall headquarters. Running Saturdays and Sundays from November 26 & 27, the Brewpub will play host to the inaugural Franciscan Well ‘Crafted For Character’ Christmas Market. A veritable
Winter Wonderland, visitors will be treated to an array of unique gift ideas from some of Cork’s finest craftspeople and artists. From paintings and woodwork to photography and jewelery, you’ll be spoilt for crafty present ideas. They’ll be serving a delicious range of hot winter drinks including mulled wine, hot cider and hot buttered rum, alongside seasonal cocktails.
The Franciscan Well are also introducing their new upstairs bar, The Stave & Chime, serving cocktails with a twist, and combining their brewing expertise with their mixologists’ creativity.
