This is a pretty good list and what you say is pretty accurate for each pub. Only one I'd disagree with is The Brog, it can be a nice relaxed place but most nights it's too packed, too loud and too messy to have a quiet one. Also kudos on mentioning the The Abbot, its a gem of a place that not a lot of people know about.
I haven't drank on Barrack Street since I was refused in Tom Barrys when I was 18. I must give it another shot when I am back on the beer in 8 bitter days.
On an unrelated note, and I'm not sure this is the right place to ask, but what the hell, does anyone know bars in Cork that will hire inexperienced staff? (I got a little in An Bodhran because I know Sharon, but I want an actual job in a bar.)
