The Enterprise is a Cork Institution. If you visit the city you should visit here for their wonderful Irish Breakfast, lunch or dinner. The Enterprise is always reasonably priced, great staff and very accessible from the city.

Having had a reasonable experience some years ago at this place, and enticed by the "Jazz Weekend" menu on the door and the friendly welcome of the doorman, we expected some good evening food in a reputed Cork hostelry.

I'm also glad that they had sold out of the roast lamb & that our waitress recommended the beef. I hesitate to order beef because I'm so... More

Stumbled on it on a wet day in Cork. It is a little bit off the main thoroughfares but well worth looking for. Lovely relaxing interior and top class food served by top class staff.Will definitely be back.Seems to be freqented by locals as the staff greeted many by name and this is always a good sign.

There is always a lovely greeting and welcome for you at this warm establishment. The staff are very friendly and extremely customer-focused. They do REAL pizza in their Courtyard nighttime section of the business but when I asked for it at lunchtime today, there wasn't even a hesitation - no problem at all. It was one of the nicest pizzas... More

Dropped by this large pub during the Jazz weekend. Could it believe how expansive the space is. Ordered pizza, which was very tasty. Jazz band good. Like the decor.
