O'Flynns Butchers

Although it is a block away from the English Market, where there are a dozen or so excellent butchers to choose from, many loyal customers make this legendary butchers shop a destination.


Run by brothers Simon and Patrick O’Flynn, it is a very traditional outfit, known for the exceptional quality of its meats and skilled butchering. Although a tad dearer than many rivals, the shoppers of Cork know good value when they see it and are happy to pay a premium for the outstanding produce sold - and good advice, and a bit of banter too. Simon has some unusual hobbies (he flies in his spare time, and plays the viola in the Cork Symphony Orchestra) so the chat may go beyond the usual weather and sporting themes. 


O'Flynns' specialities include kassler - and spiced beef, which has people flocking to the shop for this traditional treat coming up to Christmas.

Open Mon-Thu 9-5, Fri 8-5, Sat 8-4. abbreviations
