NASH 19 Restaurant, Gallery & Food Shop

Established in 1992 and now a Cork institution, Nash 19 is located in the heart of the City on Princes Street, a stone’s throw from The English Market, and is a home from home for many of its loyal customers.

‘Nash 19 is one of the true treasures of Cork City, a monument to simple, wholesome, unfussy cooking, based on fabulous, fresh, local produce. Of course, it takes time and trouble, most restaurants deal with just a handful of suppliers the difference here, apart from the careful, clear, detailed cooking, is taking that trouble. Nash 19 is a restaurant with a philosophy and it is not often that you can say that.’ – Tom Doorley

The team of chefs begin their day at 6am. The lunch menu moves beautifully through the seasons, using what is available at the market and complimented by our growers in the area. See our sample menus and wine list.

If you are having a working lunch then a Nash2Go box of sandwiches is the answer.

We have an extensive gluten free menu, put together by Margaret our Head Chef. Our food shop is full of meals to go for the busy customer, and our clientele feast regularly from the wide selection of produce in our shop.

Sternview Gallery is curated by Padraig Spillane, and exhibits six shows a year, currently hosting Tom Climent.

Happy Customers

We had a wonderful lunch in Nash 19 today. The food was excellent – well prepared and well presented. The atmosphere was cheery. Our server had a great attitude – cheerful, kind, attentive and helpful!

Pat P, Dungarvan, Ireland

The Breakfast was excellent, all local ingredients as named on the menu. I especially liked the house-made potato cakes and relish. Arbutus toast and Barry’s Tea were the accompaniments.

Bertha Fitz, Killarney, Ireland

Another excellent meal at Nash 19! Enjoyed an excellent lunch last Saturday during a very busy service – as usual! Nash is our place to eat every time we visit our family who live in Cork. The Beaujolais Nouveau was very good.

We were introduced to Nash’s by our cousins in Cork and enjoyed a lovely brunch together. The veggie breakfast of goat cheese, roasted tomatoes, avocado and nuts on freshly baked flat bread was imaginative and delicious.

Krystyna, Bristol, United Kingdom

Just stopped off for tea and scones and as usual simply heaven. Scones serves with a raspberry compote and of course some cream. Staff friendly and always helpful.

Ryan, County Cork, Ireland


We have been delighted to be honored by some of these fine folks.
