Chicken Inn

All the best places to eat, shop and stay in Ireland. A local guide to local places.

It is no small matter to run a business successfully for 61 years, but that’s how old the Chicken Inn, in Cork’s English Market, is these days. Old enough for the bus pass, except there is no need to get the pass ready just yet, for the Mulcahy family and their team have a pep in their step and a glint in their eye, and they show no signs of taking the pension or the bus pass just yet. 61 years! There are almost no other food businesses in Ireland who can claim such a lengthy history, but you would never think, when you shop here, that the team are already into their seventh decade of serving the people and the city. They are enthusiastic, dedicated, and happy to be serving delicious Irish chicken, and infinite variations thereof, to the good people of Cork. Just consider the service that the Mulcahy family have rendered to the city and the English Market over more than six decades, and you begin to understand how Cork has managed to hold on to its powerfully rooted food culture. The Mulcahy family are Cork food heroes, keepers of the flame.
