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.

    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.

    Went to see Wake by Irene Kelleher the other night.. fantastic show.. self written and acted... she is formidable in her work.. great set design too.... visuals and sound were excellent..
    Fab venue... oh gosh - long may it live... places like this are far and few between nowadays..
    Its quite intimate but still a substantial space.. lovely cosy bar area... great big mugs of tea too if thats what you prefer.. lovely staff...
    Can't wait for my next visit..
    So good to be able to enjoy live theatre again after the hiatus brought about by the pandemic

    I'll get straight to the point on this one. Decent venue but they seriously need to sort out the service at the bar. After waiting at least 15 /20 minutes at the counter for our first drink, we decided it would be wise to order 2 of everything rather than waste more time during the gig. No problem for me drinking pints but the vodka and gin drinkers were told they couldn't get doubles so each person had to get 2 singles. Still trying to figure out the rationale behind this but fair enough, if that's their policy.
    Gig started soon afterwards and all went well until about an hour into it. Glasses were in need of a refill so 3 of the 5 of us went to the bar again. Half an hour later (not exaggerating) they arrived back saying it was impossible to get served and suggested we leave. As we were enjoying the band, I decided to give it a try myself but even though it wasn't that busy and I managed to get right up to the bar, I wasted another 15 minutes with my elbows on the bar trying to figure out who WAS actually getting served 'cause it certainly wasn't me or the guys either side of me who said they'd been there 25 minutes.
    That was enough for us. The band were still playing but we decided to move on somewhere we could actually get a drink as midnight curfew was in place so time was valuable.
    This place seriously needs to either put another bar/bigger bar in place or get more staff. I fully appreciate that it's hard to get experienced staff right now but don't expect your customers to waste their nights waiting at the bar. And we were definitely not the only ones unhappy with the situation on the night.
    Sorry for the negative review as I'd love to support any venue doing live music but I'd be reluctant to go back anytime soon.

    Nice performance venue for dancing and singing. Acoustics are good except a bit too loud (maybe sitting in fourth row near stage was the cause). Seats are reasonably comfortable, but very firm. You do not want to sit for more than 11/2 hours without an intermission.

    Bought the tickets on a whim, sat in plush seats for a very enjoyable couple of hours while we were taken on a whirlwind tour through history of Ireland in snippets of song, dance and story telling. And, you can have a pint during the show!

    It was the most entertaining way to learn about history! The actors' expressions were incredible to make the play sentimental and make you laugh at the same time. The play, the actors, the meal were all amazing. I look forward to come here again to see the show!

    Turkiye'den Cork'a yolu dusen arkadaslar kesinlikle bu oyunu izlemeliler. Cork tarihini sizi hem duygulandiran hem de gulduren boylesine guzel bir oyunda izlemek inanilmaz bir deneyim! Hem guzel bir oyun izlemis hem de lezzetli geleneksel bir aksam yemegi yemis olursunuz

    The Opera Gal performance in this wonderful building, was superb, from the presentation by Evelyn Grant to the beautifuly performed music score by the Concert Orchestra conducted by Sinad Hayes, to the magical voices of Emma Nash, Rachel Croash Gavin Ring and Rory Musgrave, from Mozart to Bizet, this was a memorable evening indeed.
    Thanks to the Arts Council Ireland, MTU School of music, and indeed the legacy of Cara O Sullivan for putting on this production,Next time you are visiting this busy happy friendly city , please if there is any productions on, go, as from Pantomime to Opera, they are always first class! So Enjoyable, atmosphere voices, gowns , decent bar, all added up to another memorable time spent there. Thank you. E Cole,

    Had a great night at the comedy club last night. Well worth a visit, and something a little different for a night out. Mike the mc is really good at what he does and his passion really shows.

    It was such a funny night! I had no ideas what to expect but these guys have serious talent to be able to think on the spot and still be hilarious is amazing. I definitely recommend going as it is something different and entertaining to do in Cork.

    I went to my first ever comedy gig last night in the Everyman - and this group did not disappoint! The range of topics and acts were great and the performers ability to tell stories and keep the crowd happy was brilliant. I really enjoyed my night I cannot thank the crowd more. Can't wait for the next show - if you like myself want something different to do in Cork this is definitely the way to go! Brilliant value for money too - 10 bucks for a great night!!! well done guys. Great to support such a wonderful crowd.
