We are delighted to bring you a taste of West Cork in beautiful Clonakilty. We opened in 2012 and are constantly improving our menus to bring something special to your experience with us. A simple yet locally sourced and affordable menu await even the most discerning palate, and our freshly baked cakes, scones and home-baked goods will tempt anyone. Added to that are local cheese, meats, chutneys, jams and salads. With specials every day on our menu, there is always something to enjoy.
Experience something out of the ordinary with our hand-picked collection of craft beers. With a small but varied selection of micro brews, we’ve done the hard work so you don't have to. While there are a few familiar beers available, why not enjoy a cider from Kinsale, or one of a range of refreshments from the Dungarvan Brewing Company.
With a signature coffee blended just for us and a selection of teas, Arís Café is a must stop when next in Clonakilty. Enjoy one of our hand-made cordials or freshly pressed juices. There is something for everyone here.
We are excited to have an extensive wine list available and to be able to introduce a few different wines every month. Served by the glass, carafe or bottle, come along and enjoy some time with us. We occasionally offer wine tastings and courses. Details on our web page or ask at the bar.
Bring your book club, games club and friends. (Not a member of a club? Start one!) Enjoy an international inter cambio language class, or just come alone and be inspired by the curve of Pearse street as you look toward the church spire. Sit back and relax, or feel free to catch up on our free wireless internet. Come alone or in a group. You can always book ahead.
Outside we have a large patio where we offer table service. Enjoy a Mediterranean feel during long warm summer evenings, or grab one of our blankets and cuddle up outside on cold evenings. Watch the world go by from Arís.
The most important things to do in the world are to get something to eat, something to drink and somebody to love you. —Brendan Behan
