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.

    This is a lovely, tranquil place to visit - very peaceful. The staff are really friendly, especially Mary in the ticket shop who made me feel very welcome, and the young woman in the cafe who brought my cup of tea out into the garden when the cafe was busy.
    The gardens were a perfect place to sit in the sun and take in the peace and quiet. It was like you are miles away from the city. Nano Nagle's story was fascinating; I have to admit I'd not heard of her before my visit. I loved seeing all the photos of some of the current nuns in the order too.

    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!

    Had a fantastic day out here. Beautiful setting, lovely views, loads to see and do. We visited on a really hot day so we spent lots of time in the witches area.

    Beautiful green area in a really nice part of the city, close to Daly Bridge and UCC. We also had good weather, so we enjoyed a nice stroll, just when we were about to leave Cork.

    Gem of a place absolutely beautiful gardens with stunning flowers. Lovely way to spend a day perfect place for kids fairies everywhere,all different garden areas with ponds real fish,goats,birds, rabbits and even some dinosaurs. U can bring a picnic or just get a coffee. The owner was such a lovely man who told us it has taken him and his wife 14 years to make the gardens. Time very well spent should b extremely proud of themselves.we will Deffo be back 😎

    Bit of a trek to get to the tower, and some very steep steps to get to the top of the tower, but the views are quite good. I enjoyed ringing the church bells to the various tunes detailed on the bell ringing landing

    There are guided tours, but it was nice to walk around and explore. Great views of Cork! Definitely recommend it if you are in Cork.

    What a fabulous attraction in the beautiful Crosshaven. Plenty to see, both inside and outside so still a lovely visit on a wet day. Staff were so helpful and knowledgable and when we found out that the whole place is run by volunteers, it made the visit more special. The work and effort that the volunteers put into Camden really is outstanding and they should all be commended. It is a work in progress and we will def be back in a few years to see what they have added but we still spent over 2 hours here. The views from the cafe were spectacular and well worth eating outside just to see the view. I really can’t speak highly enough of what Camden Fort is, I would recommend everyone to visit to see for yourself, what can be achieved when a group of people come together to turn a derelict site into a top tourist attraction. Well done to all involved and we look forward to returning

    This was such a pleasant experience, with lovely walkways for humans and dogs, as well as great views Great to get out of the car and be amongst greenery, and beautiful trees, also to see these are named, as the walk then becomes 3 dimensional a pleasure, healthy and learning too. Beautifully maintained. a real joy. Very quiet, I was surprised not to see more people enjoying this treasure on their doorsteps! Thank you Cork

    This is the main street of Cork city and has many of the large stores as well a a number of smaller stores (mainly chains rather than uniquely Irish). It is still enjoyable to wander down one side, cross over the road and walk down the other side. - good broad pavements help to make this easy and stress-free.

    The historical explanations, the film, the power room are exciting,
    so are the stands for the photos, the boss's viewpoint and the factory worker's experience

    Its a beautiful walk in Cork just outside Fitzgerald Park. Only downside is that there are no public toilets nearby. But other than that it’s magnificent.

    YES! Walk over the Shakey Bridge! We visited the Goal and then took a nice little walk down the hill and over this bridge to the delightful Fitzgerald park on the other side. Made the walk way more fun and interesting for my kids!
