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.

    An experience on its own with a lot of fruit and vegetable stalls. A number of butchers selling pork, beef and lamb - looks as fresh as you can get. The meat stalls are reasonably priced as its for Irish farms.

    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.

    Visited while we were in Cork on vacation. Very eclectic shop. A little bit of everything. Never know what you may find that you need.

    Been through this place a few times at this stage and ive always had pleasant experiences. Its never been too jammed when I’ve visited and parking remains free. There is a good selection of shops and restaurants along with a cinema.

    Best Dunnes in Cork. Now has a nice pharmacy and a Peter Mark hair salon.
    The canteen is very reasonable and always busy.

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

    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.

    I went here with my boyfriend and they have many shops! Our favourite one was Penneys. The downfall was the closing time. Many shops were closed

    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

    Selection was excellent and the staff in each section we visited were friendly.

    Found casual and work attire.

    We tried the pub restaurant on the other side of the lobby and found our Guinness and fish fry. Sorry didn’t write the name down so I might be spelling it wrong. Bice the name was Christy’s. The staff there were attentive and friendly too.

    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.
