Best Burgers in Cork

Although Dublin is the capital representing the heart of Irish life, Cork in the south is a strong contender for being the country’s food capital. Fancy some food for thought?

With so many options to choose from, we have curated a list of the Best Burgers in Cork – all within easy access from Maldron Hotel South Mall Cork City.


Son of a Bun 

Cork’s best burger joint (although this continues to be a debate) is Son of a Bun onMacCurtain Street. Their menu is entirely homemade, from sauces and chicken wings to salads and desserts. Everything is prepared fresh daily, including their signature brioche bun which is baked fresh every morning. 



Wowburger is the place to go for delicious burgers, fries, shakes, and unlimited toppings. They opened their first burger hut in The Workman’s Club over 5 years ago, and since then have been serving up their double patty wonders to an ever-growing group of burger fans. A huge hit with shoppers, locals, and tourists alike! 


Beasley Street Dining 

Dining alfresco comes to Cork – imagine relishing your burger in the heart of Cork city! Maldron Hotel South Mall’s newest restaurant experience is a short walk to all public transportation, along with plenty of parking nearby. 

What makes this burger so scrumptious? The ingredients used are fresh, local produce; along with a great selection of cocktails – perfect for a brunch or night out with the girls! 



French Church Street is named after a group of Huguenots who settled in Cork City in the 18th century. It’s doubtful they would have approved of Bunsen Burger, the newest restaurant in their old neighbourhood. The menu is limited to hamburgers and fries, and the interior is equally simple, with exposed brick, steaming vents, and a polished concrete floor. 

What makes this burger so delicious? It has got to be the three ingredients: the bun, their meat, as well as the right amount of gooey cheese! 



The name Coqbull originates from the simplicity of the locally sourced ingredients. Why Coqbull Restaurant makes our list is their chicken and burger concept with a menu of rotisserie chicken and gourmet beef burgers, as well as an array of cocktails and local craft beers.
