Carrigaline’s trendy new bar opens its doors this week

We love to see it!

Main Street in Carrigaline will be getting a brand new upscale bar this week as The Emporium Company have announced their €4m bar will open its doors for the first time.

‘Mabel Lane’ has been in the works for several months now but will finally be ready to open tomorrow (Wednesday 27th July). The new bar promises to bring ‘an upscale neighbourhood feel’ with great food, all the classic cocktails, live music and good vibes all round, and replaces the former ‘O’ Cogáin’s’ pub on Main Street.

The bar will open at 3pm tomorrow as part of a phased opening, and will serve wine, beer, cocktails until closing with live music throughout the day, along with DJs and live music over the bank holiday weekend.

In addition to this, there will also be an extensive food range and Mabel Lane will open the kitchen for service from August 2nd, with coffee and scones from 9am-12pm and a full lunch menu from 12-4pm. By the middle of September, the bar will open with a full breakfast offering from 9am-12, lunch from 12-4pm and will also have an À La Carte offering from 4-10pm.

Owned by Cork hospitality operator The Emporium Company, Mabel Lane will be the fourth addition to their family of bars that have each become firm favourites in their respective localities. The other venues include The Castle and Yard in Glanmire, JJ Coppingers in Midleton and Tradehouse Central in Ballincollig.

Speaking ahead of the opening of Mabel Lane, Group Manager at The Emporium Company, James Dullea said:

“Our strategy from day one has been to bring a city-type bar experience to the suburbs, as we have successfully done with our other bars across the group. Carrigaline was a natural progression for us after Glanmire, Ballincollig and Midleton, due to its population, large hinterland and the amount of development going on in the area. We have seen that there is a huge market for a high-quality bar and food offering outside of Cork City and this is what we have heavily focused on since we began acquiring assets.”

No individual bookings are required for Mabel Lane – but group bookings are advised to book through the website –, and be sure to follow their new Instagram account @mabellanecork.
