Update May 2006: This pub is gone and has been replaced by another. I passed by in my car the other day and noticed it.
Its most certainly not a regular name for a Cork pub but we headed to Bialo Czerwoni recently. It is the first Polish pub that i have ever visited in Cork If i am being honest it is in an area of the city that i would not normally venture to. I had read about a pub of the same name opening on Henry street in Limerick. I am not sure if both pubs are under the same ownership. The name translates into English as white and red. These were the predominant colours in this particular bar as you would expect. The pub itself is long and narrow. I noticed some interesting pictures on the walls. I had a pint of Guinness and one of our group had a pint of Polish beer and he enjoyed it. The guy serving us who i presume was Polish was very pleasant. There wasn’t too many people in here but there was a few. The pint of Guinness was alright, not great but ok. There are a good few televisions scattered around the bar. It was a grand pub for one drink but i wouldn’t head out here specifically. It is a good walk from the city center.
The toilets here were disappointing. They are small and the smell in them was revolting. It was a very different and interesting experience visiting this pub and i am glad that we went in. I don’t know the name of the street that it is on but it is near the marina road out to Pairc Ui Chaoimh.
Toilet rating: 3/10
Pint rating: 5/10
Overall rating: 5.5/10
Final comment: This pub was grand for one visit but i won’t be too worried if i don’t head back again.
