Cork Escorts and Sex Guide

Travelling to Cork and wondering what kind of sex services you can access?

Fortunately the sex scene in Cork is a big one. The southernmost county of Ireland is also the largest and, outside of Dublin, has the most amount of adult entertainment options. From strip clubs to escorts, erotic massage to dogging venues, Cork has a lot of ways to get your kicks.

In this guide to Cork’s sex scene we give you a couple of options to explore.

Though Ireland is only 302 miles North to South and 174 miles East to West, the rolling landscape, country roads and lack of extensive rail network means that a distance of 40 or 50 miles can take well over an hour or two to cover by car.

We’ve decided to break down the sex scenes for the main cities of Ireland. So, whilst some independent escorts say they will travel from Dublin, you’ll thank us when you get serviced locally within the hour rather than have to wait for three and pay extra for travel expenses.

Prostitution in Cork

Since March 2017, paying for sexual services in Ireland has become fully criminalised with the onus being on the customer and not the prostitute. Though prostitution was legal prior to this date, the updated legislation effectively removes any implication of wrong doing from sex workers themselves. Following the Swedish model, Ireland joins only a handful of countries that are adopting these laws in a bid to prevent trafficking and those sex workers who are vulnerable.

Escort Services in Cork

As we all know, escort services are a simple and fully legal transaction of paying a courtesan for her time. An escort will usually spend that time with you on a date to accompany you to dinner, events or other social meetings. If, during the course of your date, you end up having sex then this is not considered (legally) as part of a paid service. Traditionally, prostitutes call themselves escorts in order to avoid falling foul of any local laws.

Cork is reasonably well serviced by escorts with many independent directories covering Cork.

Escort Ireland

Escort Ireland lists over seventy escorts servicing the country covering a range of ages, nationalities and specialities. The site is well organised and has some great features including a verification system allowing you to feel confident in the authenticity of the advertisers. On top of this, there is a review system where punters can share good (or bad) experiences with an escort. This invaluable insight can really help to make sure you choose wisely; particularly if you have specific requirements.

The site is arranged well and the thumbnails make it easy to find what you are looking for in any category; redheads, mature escorts or by particular service.

Irish Punters

The original escort listing service, Irish Punters is a simple directory of escorts across Ireland with plenty available in Cork. The girls are arranged alphabetically with further profile information and photographs behind each telephone number. Some escorts provide in call only or massage services so be sure to read the detail thoroughly before making contact. You can read up on our full guide to Irish Punters, here.

Cork Strip Clubs

The Great Escape

31/32 Leitrim Street, Cork

Tel: +353 21 450 1062

A reasonably large venue with pole dancing, table dancing and lap dancing available, the Great Escape gentleman’s club is the original Cork strip club. Opening over ten years ago, the club has a good reputation for value, discretion and overall atmosphere. You can get a private dance for about €45. The dancers come from all corners of the earth and start scantily clad before completing exotic routines on rotation with other performers touting for up close and personal dances.

The club is open seven days a week from 8.00pm to 2.00am. Admission is free before 11pm or €10 after.


15 Leitrim St, Shandon, Cork

Tel: +353 86 813 6000

Voted Ireland’s No 1 gentleman’s club for stag parties, Secrets is a popular lap dance venue in Cork.

The venue is open seven nights a week from 8pm until late. Most nights the action is wound up by about 2am but expect the unexpected. The club offers a free airport pick up service for those visitors keen to get straight off the plane and sample some Irish hospitality.

You can book a VIP/Champagne room for private dances and enjoy the free bar that comes with this service as well as some highly entertaining personal performances from the dancers.

The club  also runs a casino from the premises in an attempt to appeal to a broader range of client.

Secrets has a certain appeal to it that is laidback and friendly but does not compete with the bright lights of any big red light district club you’ve experienced (or dreamt of). That said, Secrets does have a good local reputation and is not that expensive.

Erotic Massage in Cork

Sensual Massage

With prices starting from €80 for a half hour ‘exotic’ massage, the services of this one woman band in Cork are tantalising. Offering tantric massage, relaxing lingerie massage or a special ‘Tie & Tease’ session, clients are expected to remain passive during sessions. Though not an escort service, there is an unspoken guarantee of a happy ending in some form with this (more than just) sensual massage.


The classified personals website, Locanto, would be a dog-eared yellow pages for adult services if it were a traditional printed medium. You can always rely on Locanto to provide escort and massage services wherever you are in the world. In Cork, you can find independent listing for masseurs offering full body to body and tantric massage in County Cork. Prices vary depending on the ‘talent’ of the masseur but you can expect to pay anything from around €100-€150 per hour for a session. Some ladies even throw in a ‘professional’ accompanied shower prior to your treatment.

No tribute to the Cork sex scene would be complete without a nod to the body rubs section of Backpage. Just like Locanto, this personal classifieds site has specialist categories for adults looking for sexual services. The body rubs section has a range of listings for Nuru, lingerie and tantric massage starting from around €50 for a half hour. There are some listings that specialise in massage by feet.
