Callanan's Bar

History talk


Join the Crowley family and pub historian Dr Tom Spalding in an entertaining and informative illustrated talk on the history of Cork’s pubs. The talk will cover the role of the Murphy’s and Beamish & Crawford breweries, and also of Cork architects and designers in producing the bars we know so well.

This event recounts the history from the period of 1900 to 1970. In the past these talks have been very popular so book soon!
