Would in the corner not be right?

Not with ag. What I assume it's talking about here is a restaurant at the corner of a square or something similar.

I agree but English also uses 'on the corner' which is my mind is interchangeable with at the corner when stating the location of something which I think 'ag' would cover here

At the corner would in my understanding mean something "close by", sort of this street and the crossing with the following street.

Again, it is a shame we don't have a pronunciation for this (though I understand why, given budget and time restraints on the parts of the designers and maintainers of this site.) But as far as I can tell 'cúinne' sounds not completely dissimilar from it's English counterpart?

Could be that we're wearing hoodies and munching on chips.
