About
The Secret Garden is modern oasis in our bustling city. A fairy tale for grown-ups, an outdoor nightclub. The Secret Garden is a magical place that has to be seen to be believed. Think Alice in Wonderland meets Narnia and that might give you a clue as to what to expect. One thing is for sure; it is a venue that you will never forget!

So me and my friend had paid 12:50 and the bouncer on the door said strictly 22s now that’s fine but I have seen people I went to school with inside there the same age as me and even younger 18-20 years and they refused me and my friend when I’m 21 and she is 22 and no refund back absolutely shocking and also my sister was in there Friday evening after she received her leaving cert results , so it just shocked me when me and my friend couldn’t get in on Saturday evening , I wouldn’t recommend it at all if that’s going to be the carry on

15 euro per person booking fee is questionable business practices.
Jun 2021 • Friends
Booked into secret garden for a meal in their outdoor area. While I thought the experience was a lot of fun, two problems arose during our visit.

- we were charged twice at the same table, meaning we had to go through weeks of emailing back and forth to get refunded the 165 euro of erroneous charges to our account.

- we were charged a 90 euro "booking fee". This is a highly malicious practice, considering most other restaurants in Cork charged a fee that was then used to offset a portion of the bill. Here, this was not the case.

Overall I would not recommend given the issues above. If resolved then I would reconsider.

Awful experience
Aug 2021
Very bad experience with this place. We booked a place for a bank holiday Monday weeks in advance and even paid the fee expecting to have a great night but unfortunately the opposite was true. We were met by the most unwelcoming staff and bouncers were racist towards foreigners not only on this occasion but from previous encounters. The staff wouldn't let us in because they gave away our seats even though we booked it and paid for them ages before. We were promised to be given our money back at least 3 days after but month later still nothing to be refunded. Would not recommend this place to anyone!

I loved it over all, after such a tramative experience Caitlyn was amazing
Jun 2021 • Friends
I had a bit of an interesting experience with another customers but Caitlyn handled it so well, I could not have asked for a better waitress. I am 21 and I was being creeped on by other customer in Secret Garden and Caitlyn was amazing with us!

Paid for food we never received
Jun 2021 • Friends
Blatant false advertising. Paid what we believed was a deposit of 15 euro a head for a table and was told that food was included in the price. None of us had eaten before arriving as we were under the impression that food was to be served. Asked our server could we order and we were told there was no food. Our 75 euro was not refunded or put towards our drinks bill. Very disappointing.
Staff were very polite and accommodating and I felt very sorry for the poor server put in the awkward position of explaining that the food advertised and paid for by us was not being served at all.

Abysmal
Sep 2020
Upon entry a party of 12 of us arrived for a pre-booked birthday party and were advised of a list of certain restrictions at the door. At no time did the staff advise us that we were not allowed to take pictures, dance or talk to our friends as we were not socially distancing despite the fact there were six people on one tableand six adjacent to it. My friend was also double charged for drinks and the "food" we received were boxes with cold salami, pastrami and crackers for 15 euro. We really did not appreciate being spoken to like children. The restrictions in this shambolic establishment are mindboggling. The staff were immensely rude and we will not be darkening the door of this place again.
