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.

    There are some really impressive statues and artefacts here that are worth exploring. Admissions is free, which was quite nice.

    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.

    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.

    This is a small gallery which has a wide range of art from ceramics, to painting , prints and sculpture . The Lavitt has exhibitions for emerging artists and it is a great opportunity to get your hands on early works.
    The price range is good and you can find Christmas, wedding and birthday presents. You can also get a voucher, I recently got a voucher there for a wedding. Great for the couple who has everything.

    €9 was far too expensive for a small, dry baguette roll (defrosted?) with a few slices of salami and tomato. It took 20 minutes to prepare, although there were no other customers in the cafe, by which time I had to take it away rather than be able to sit down and eat it. Very disappointing, will not visit again.

    I've been to this gallery, obviously specialising in photography several times now.
    The gallery puts on a broad range of exhibitions and always a selection of self produced photography by established and 'young' photographers.
    It's a small intimate space and the shows have always been beautifully curated and incorporated into a charming building, known as The Lord Mayors Pavilion in Fitzgerald's Park.
    It is obviously run by photographers, always ready to give information about the photography on show, and what is happening in the local photo groups in Cork.
    I highly recommend visiting this specialist gallery, whether your main interest in the arts is photography or another area. You are unlikely to be disappointed.

    Note: This shop is no longer trading as an art shop. It is now a barber shop. Oh for Gods sake, they want my review to be 50 characters minimum just to tell you the shop is no longer trading. Sheesh.

    Tig Fili doesn't exist anymore - why is it listed here? Tig Fili closed 2005 or even earlier! It WAS great...

    Spotted the exhibition at Cork airport. Superb crafts on display. Bought a few pieces. Only sorry I didn't have a bigger case to take more home. Excellent craftsmanship. Will have to return to Cork to pick up some more.
