We’re a creative bunch and we like to show it. So while the venue may have the same name, it’s never the same night twice.  I might be biased but I think we […]

Cork Style is always in Fashion

On entering Joan’s premises I went from a nervous feeling to that of meeting an old friend in a matter of moments.  It’s taking the easy option to say that Joan has a lovely manner that puts you at your ease.
