Stayed at the Commons for a weekend visiting friends, we found the staff very friendly and helpful, the food was very good at the commons and would recommend anyone to have a meal there whilst staying. The room we stayed in was very comfortable,warm, and spacious, and the beds were very comfortable also. Will certainly go back as we loved... More

Came across Commons Inn as I was working in Cork for a couple of days, and looking for somewhere reasonably priced to stay, with car park facilities- not always easy in Cork city, I had both dinner and breakfast at the hotel, and the food was freshly prepared and delicious, couldn't fault anything. The staff in the restaurant were so... More

Many thanks for your great review. Just to let you know that all our rooms really are very large and the only difference between your room and a standard room is the extra bed. We do have baths in some of our rooms and do not hesitate to ask for one the next time that you book. We look forward... More

Grace is so welcoming, she is so attentive to any needs and requests. Daniel is just superb. Nothing is a bother to him and really ensures that The... More

The location was a little out of the main central area of cork. But the rooms were big as were the bathrooms. The front desk staff were pleasant enough. But the two gentlemen working in the restaurant the nights we dined there were excellent. Their customer service was phenomenal! And the food was excellent. My partner and I also had... More

We always push the double beds together, in our hotel room and put the kids in the middle, so they do not fall out. When we moved the beds, the dirt and dust underneath was so bad!!!! The dust was so deep, I got a teaspoon and wrote "CLEAN ME" in it and took pictures!!!! On our second night at... More
