Cork’s smallest bar reopens after 705 days

And they have some new additions.

The Hibernian Bar, more commonly known as the Hi-B, reopens to the public on February Thursday 10 after being closed for almost two years due to covid.

The cosy bar located on Oliver Plunkett Street was unfortunately too small to enforce the 2-metre rule, making social distancing almost impossible.

But alas, now that restrictions have lifted, the bar can finally reopen and operate as normal. Taking to Facebook to make the announcement, the Hi-B bar shared a video of the premises, gleaming and ready to welcome many thirsty customers.

Having been closed for 705 days we are thrilled to announce that we will be opening on Thursday 10th February at 4pm.


The bar, which is infamous for its strict ‘no mobile phones’ policy, has a couple of new additions to its venue, which include credit card facilities, wine and Prosecco by the bottle, and ‘good coffee’. The no mobile phone rule is still very much in place, the only exception being when paying the bill, as they want to encourage good conversation all round.

Fancy a pint in Cork’s smallest pub? You can find the Hi-B bar at 108 Oliver Plunkett Street, right across from the GPO.
