Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Purpose-built gallery in the grounds of UCC.
As is always the way with such spaces, the appeal depends on the programming...

My 2nd time here to give it a 2nd chance. It was worse than the 1st visit.
Staff were horrendous had to go to the counter to ask for water, salt & pepper, milk. Weren’t greeted when we arrived even though staff were standing chatting by the door , so we helped ourselves to the menus & table. Only 3 tables were occupied so don’t understand why service was crap.
Food was disgusting. Left most of my mine on the plate and no enquiry as to why when plates were lifted. The milk curdled in the coffee. We noticed thick brown / grey mould inside the water bottle / jug had to go to counter again to replace it. Clearly not been washed in a long while. (Hopefully won’t be sick tomorrow). Glasses not even replaced with fresh water. Bathroom needed attention 🤮
Can’t get over how terrible it was on every level. Sickening. We ate there 12th Jan 2020.

This Gallery is hidden away on the grounds of University College in Cork. We stumbled onto this place looking for a restroom and were stunned by the works here. A must see.

The building is interesting architecturally and they usually have a few different exhibitions. It is within the campus grounds of UCC, so if you are walking around the college, it is a nice thing to include. The free admission makes it good for quick or more extended visits. And Cafe BoBo downstairs is by far the best place to get Coffee/Espresso drinks, light meals and treats on campus. It is good enough to go to the campus just for the cafe.

My niece and I enjoyed a fabulous brunch at Bobo Café yesterday. I had reserved a table with Caoimhe who afforded us first class service. The food was really tasty and beautifully presented.
We were ever so impressed with everything and had the loveliest experience. I would highly recommend Bobo Café at The Glucksman for the food, great staff, care and attention to detail in a totally relaxed atmosphere. Kay

Been here a few times. Never could see the appeal. Had the Bobo hash brown (actually more grated potatoes, like Rosti but not nice) with scrambled eggs which were over cooked and tepid. Served with sourdough bread which was barely toasted on one side. Coffee is bitter and undrinkable. Service pleasant but very slow. It wasn’t busy so no excuse for poor quality.

interesting pieces of art, lovely to stroll around and take it in.
Café downstairs served a very strong and bitter coffee which i could not finish and i found the staff rude and hostile. Will return to the gallery but definitely not to Bobo's Café.

We went to see the building and perhaps whatever show was on - me + elderly relative. Parking nearby tough. You walk in and see only a freight elevator that you are supposed to use - not clear. Signage for people with 100% vision. Steep staircases in concrete. Café BoBo supposedly open to 5pm but stops food at 3pm - neither bourgeois nor Bohemian.

Bottom line: like the aesthetic style but exclusionary and a hostile environment.

Loved the exhibition, I wonder if the gallery itself is as busy as it could be, The shop is lovely and there was a group of children visiting for a tour which was lovely.
