These are the 5 best places to get your nails done in Cork


You’re welcome.

Ah Cork, a glorious county full of glorious people.

You know what else is glorious about Cork? The fabulous salons across the city.

So with that, I decided to put a list together of the best salons in Cork to get a cheeky Shellac done.

Have a gawk, and let me know if I’ve missed any goodies:

Fifth Avenue, Oliver Plunkett St.

Okay, you’re about to go on a glorious nail adventure.

Fifth Avenue has the most majestic list of manicures to choose from, with a range of reasonable prices.

A mini manicure will set you back just €13, while a luxurious chocolate manicure will be €40. 

All in all – you simply MUST visit!


New York Nails, South Douglas Road.

New York Nails was set up in 2007 with the aim of bringing a little piece of New York to Cork (hey look, a poem).

Over the years they have grown to become the largest dedicated pedicure and nail salon in Munster.

Prices start at €17 for a mini manicure.

Puerto Banus Nail Bar, Douglas. 

Experience a Mediterranean atmosphere while treating yourself to an excellent quality manicure, pedicure, nail extensions and other nail care services.

A mini manicure will set you back €20, while the rejuvenating citrus manicure costs €35.

It’s like going on a mini holiday!

Excellence Nails, Princes St. 

This salon is nestled right in the heart of Cork city – and it is lovely!

They describe themselves as a “cosy girlie environment where you can get away from the hustle and bustle of busy city life”.

Manicures start at €20, and they have SO many colour options.

Elysees Hair and Nail Salon is a sleek and trendy salon situated in Cork city centre.

They offer a wide range of treatments from a blow dry on your hair to manicures and pedicures to eyebrow shaping and eyelash tinting.
