Here We Go! 

Feel Good Friday is back with it's final edition for 2018 and the businesses in Cork have yet again stepped up their game!

If you like to sip a rich Americano as you browse the rails for bargains, you can enjoy your favourite treat completely free of charge this Feel Good Friday on Opera Lane.


To celebrate Feel Good Friday, a city-wide initiative designed to encourage shoppers to kick off their weekend in town, Opera Lane has teamed up with the lovely folk at Starbucks to give every shopper a caffeine kick on Friday, September 28th.


Not only will you receive a free java to perk you up for an evening’s shopping, it’ll even be served in a stylish Opera Lane keep cup that you can use again and again.


Simply stroll down Opera Lane and collect your special Opera Lane keep cup between 3pm and 7pm on Friday, September 28th, then head into Starbucks and choose a cappuccino, latte, filter, Americano, flat white coffee or any tea completely free of charge!

The cups are reusable and Starbucks offer the best discount on return of the cup, with 35 cent off your refill each and every time you use it.


It’s the gift that keeps on giving!

But wait....... There's more!

Feel Good Friday is an initiative led by Cork Business Association, Cork Chamber and Cork City Council which sees retailers and businesses in the city centre come together to host a series of events on the last Friday of every month. The idea behind Feel Good Friday is to reintroduce shoppers in Cork to the fun of shopping in the heart of their City. The last Friday of the month also coincides with pay day for many, so people want something to do on that day – and we’re making sure Cork City centre is top of their mind!
