Dolphin bossed the opening stages, racing into a 29-0 lead thanks to tries from centre Kevin Lynch, scrum half Gary O'Keeffe, prop Fergus Gately and flanker Barry O'Mahony.
Lynch slipped through for the opening try after 8 minutes, with out-half Barry Keeshan converting.
The AIB Club international number 10 left-footed a penalty after 23 minutes to extend the Cork side's lead, and O'Keeffe followed up with a seven-pointer from close range.
The Dolphin pack, with Munster's James Coughlan a big influence at number 8, continued to make good ground as the half wore on.
Bohemians leaked two more tries in the space of four minutes - Gately nudged the hosts onto 22 points before the industrious O'Mahony scored one of the tries of the season.
The 22-year-old Castletroy man won a lineout ball close to his own line, thundered over the 22 and chipped over the Bohs' defence.
He brilliantly controlled the ball and hacked on twice before piling over the whitewash for a memorable score.
Keeshan converted for a 29-0 score-line and Bohs almost only had pride left to play for.
