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.

    Wow! What a fabulous place to visit. The market is bursting with amazing food stalls. Definately go there hungry and grab some lunch or buy some fresh ingredients to take home and cook. We bought filled bagettes from the sandwich stall which were delicious and only 6 euro. There is a great bread stall there too where we bought a fruit soda and an orange and a chocolate cake to take home. If you love food you'll love this place!

    I took the free guided tour on Sunday 7th of August, it was way above expectations as our eloquent art historian guide brought the selected exhibits alive for us and gave them meaning, from the collection of Canova casts, to the ‘shawlie’ sculpture by Seamus Murphy and the Jack B Yeats miniature on loan, it was all fascinating.

    Upstairs we went to the oldest part of the building where the paintings, the city and the building itself were put beautifully into context by our guide. The one hour tour was both ‘just enough’ and ‘not too much’ information for a very sunny Sunday Cork afternoon.

    My husband and I avail of any opportunity to visit this beautiful Venue. The intimate coffee/wine Dock is a welcome stop off before the Cinema. The patrons who visit appear to have a genuine appreciation of the arts, as there is no popcorn munching, unwrapping of sweets or mobile phone intrusions. The City Centre venue makes for convenience and the staff are always helpful and pleasant. We look forward to receiving the weekly Schedules so that we can plan our next visit.

    Popped into costa downstairs in merchants quay shopping centre to grab a morning coffee and a cheese and tomato toastie for breakfast before setting off shopping. Service was very fast efficient and friendly and we sat in lovely comfortable armchairs . My toastie was beautiful and full of flavour and not like your normal cheese and tomato toastie. It was more of a tomato and herb sauce that you,d get on a top class pizza , it was devine and it was covered with a béchamel sauce and more cheese on top. Absolutely delicious in fact so tasty we went back there for refreshments and lunch when we finished our shopping. Lovely place with plenty of seating.

    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.

    This place is great for light meals, teas & coffee, everything is prepared in-house by the chef and served up by a friendly and helpful server.

    We stop of regularly for breakfast, coffee breaks and on one occasion and never had a bad experience.

    This has some wonderful local produce and also great fresh food stalls. It's a pity it's only on Thursdays. I'd go every Saturday if it was on

    Great place to stop off for coffee. Lovely ambiance, very friendly and wonderful little gallery upstairs.
    Well worth a stop off on trips to Dursey or Bere Island!

    It is located at the end of town (to a new tourist's eyes like me).

    Plenty of good foods and fruits and lovely people!

    Compare to shopping complex I prefer markets.
