Welcome to the Rising Tide

The Rising Tide Brasserie is nestled in the secluded village of Glounthaune, beside the tidal estuary of the River Lee, just 10 minutes east of Cork City on the old Cork/Waterford Road.  The Rising Tide is a family business run by Sandra Murphy and is a wonderful restaurant to enjoy some of the best food Cork has to offer.

The views from this amazing Bar and Restaurant are simply breath taking! Enjoy a drink and some of our award winning food and listen to the water as it gently breaks against the quay wall. Try capturing a picture of golden reflection at sunset and take away a piece of this beautiful and peaceful haven.

We are recommended by both Paolo Tullio's Taste Of Ireland, Georgina Campbell guides, Lucinda O' Sullivan Great Places to Eat, Good Food Ireland, BIM and The Michelin Guide.
