Where everybody knows your name...
Cork’s--and indeed one of Ireland’s--oldest gay bar has been going strong for more than 20 years. A diverse crowd enjoys a neighborhood bar feel and the good-sized patio, an important feature for smokers. Bartenders & crowd stop in their tracks to watch UK soaps on TV. Thursday nights informally known as Lesbian Night, but all are still welcome.

      Unfriendly and unaccepting
      This is the most unfriendly bar I have been to. I took some straight friends of mine with my partner here on a busy weekend night. We waited at the bar for 10 minutes totally ignored until then and got told they were close when they were clearly open. I find it disgusting that having fought for gay rights all these years to go into a gay bar and be discriminated against for being straight. I was so embarrassed taking my straight friends to show them a good time and to then be excluded like that. Will never be returning there again with ANY friends

      full of lesbians!
      Nice bar, but the place can be is full of lesbians during lesbian run weekends! I was there on such a weekend and there was far too many loud lesbians!

      Reliable and friendly
      Loafers is a great place to hang out and chill out. The music can get very loud later in the night but the sense of space (the place has like five or six 'sections' in it that you can roam around) means you can find your niche there. Always a great laugh, really popular with the lesbian community, and a huge comfortable smoking area!

      The old reliable
      Despite the many new gay bars, opening, closing & reopening, Loafers has stayed the course and has remained as a firm favourite on the Cork LGBT scene. It's beer garden is very popular along with the many new themed events.
