Situated in a medieval part of New Ross, Corcoran’s is one of the oldest pubs in the area having five generations of continuous ownership dating back to the mid 1800’s.
The present owner’s Grandfather – Mike Corcoran was a shipping agent and had close ties with all the major shipping companies including, Cunard, White Star and the French line. It was always said when somebody had decided to emigrate to America or Australia, their first port of call was Mike Corcoran’s pub to arrange tickets and visas. Indeed, Corcoran’s has a direct connection with the Titanic, as Mike Corcoran booked three steerage passengers onto the ship when it docked at Queenstown (Cobh). Unfortunately, all three were drowned.
The pub is situated at the scene of the bloodiest battle of the 1798 rebellion. Corcoran’s has what everyone wants from a pub: atmosphere and comfort, tradition and craic, and still be regarded as a local.
A warm hearty welcome is guaranteed at this award winning pub. Corcoran’s is a former winner of the Black and White Pub of County Wexford, and is the current holder of the best pub front in New Ross.
