Sex Not Specified I returned to this drinking hole for the first time since the place has switched to a new younger ownership, 2nd lot after Collette & Finbarr. I had only 2 G&T's in the place and tried to order a third drink unknown to me that it was a little late. There is a bell system in place to try and get the attention of the staff. I guess due to the day that was in it (Tuesday) only Donal was behind the Bar. He did respond to the bell call and after some time arrived and with an attitude that can only be described as "Confrontational". I asked for another order "G&T" only to be informed it was now after time, ("not called or informed about") and that it was not going to happen. This is in the lounge with only 2 other people in total there, one of whom had also requested to be served. I asked why the refusal and received the lame explanation still confrontational “from Donal that he had been running the tills cashing up”. I asked then as to why he could not have done that after hours and instead looking after paying customers? This is when thing’s went a bit “Pete Tong” (wrong) and Donal started being threatening and informed me that I would not be served and I was now barred and told to get out or be thrown out. I did say that he was a “fuck up and should look after paying local customers, instead of trying to throw them out & barring them” after which I did leave the premises eventuality in my own time. There is no way that fool (”Donal”) could beat me out the door on his own or should be working behind the bar; he sure has a personality and attitude problem. At the end of the day this no longer a pleasant or nice place to go to and should not be supported or visited by Carrigaline locals or any body at all. The staff and current management are ignorant and arrogant and do not have a notion of how to respect or be of service to the people who should be invited into the Bar and Lounge. It is totally set up for a small group of people and cronies who are close to the current management who cannot manage and do not have the skills to do so. Despite all the alterations in the lounge with the addition of Dart Boards, (the only thing that is of merit) in general the only clientele I saw in the Lounge area playing pool were some local druggies. Easy to spot; because their hyper attitude, ratty diluted eyes and lack of alcohol drinks present or any other drinks apart from a bottle of shared water. But back to the main point of this message; do not support this shit hole of a Bar there is little that can be kindly said about the current Management or Arrogant Aggressive Staff. The toilets are disgusting, the worst I have ever seen and still are, stink, unclean and always flooded lacking any sense of hygiene. Stay away from Cogans Bar and Lounge. You will be doing yourself, friends and family a big favour. There are much better drinking places in Carrigaline and near by to drink and eat in.Avoid this place as if you can catch somting real nasty. - localman, Ireland, Carrigaline

Sex Not Specified Great bar .. attracts a younger crowd on the weekend ..there is a fantastic atmosphere. Cogans has a bad name with some of the locals for being rough but they are very strict with the younger crowd. The staff are excellent! - Sausage, ireland

Sex Not Specified Cogans is a bar and lounge located in Carrigaline Co.Cork. The lounge is the place to go for a quality pint of stout. You will be very hard pushed to get a better quality pint anywhere in Cork. It has recently been done up and it is now very modern. It is probably the quietist pub in the town but thats part of the charm of the place. We regularly go down and bring our guitars in and have a bit of a session. It's always great fun. If you live in the area or are visiting and haven't been, pop in! - Eoin, Cork, Ireland
