Great place to Go.
I'Ve been going to Cork & Kerry for awhile and I always have a good time. Until I went to a publisity night with Miller Beer. One of the guys who worked for Miller I think his name was Scott and boy does he make promises that if I showed him my chest he would give me prizes. I was so insulted that going to a neighborhood bar and this happens I will not be going back there again!!!!
not for everybody.
beer garden is nice but inside is too small and crowded. not really a neighborhood bar and prices are kinda steep. virtually no parking available. too many other nice places on western ave to have a drink and meet people at to give this place much attention.
Friendly Irish-flavored tap on the South Side..
Regular folks settle into high-backed chairs at this woody, memorabilia-laden space. Stained-glass windows set a moody, almost upscale tone, while entertaining artifacts, ranging from early Soldier Field relics to outdated matchbooks, spark conversation among bar newbies and boisterous regulars. Outdoors, a multilevel beer garden decked with flowers and antique odds-and-ends makes revelers all but forget the bustling surroundings. Loads of brew selections, including 20 taps and at least as many bottles, cater to the "won't be caught without a beer in hand" crowd. Chatty professionals wind down the workweek with whiskey served neat and Black and Tans.
Come for the beergarten.
Nothing like a Saturday or Sunday afternoon watching baseball or football on one of the many tvs in the beergarten. Good drinks and good service along with a wonderful atmosphere make for a great time.
Santa says 'Oh Yeah!'.
Cork 'N Kerry is great, especially in the summer/fall with it's beer garden. However, I find it most fun to visit on the second Saturday in December, when our little Santa Crawl hits Western. Unfortunately Cork is so late in the crawl that I often forget being there. (Except for the time I walked into the women's room on accident, good thing I had a costume on).
