Visited this hotel recently with my boyfriend, the staff were really friendly & helpful - had a ground floor room which was spacious and very well-presented. Would definitely recommend if you're looking for somewhere to stay in the area!

Just back from a weekend break in Cork City and really enjoyed it. Myself and my wife stayed at this hotel and were made very welcome by the staff at reception and also by staff in the bar/restaurant. Our bedroom was very roomy with two double beds and nicely decorated. The food served in both bar and restaurant was excellent... More

As a regular visitor to the Commons Inn, weekly on a Friday with my husband, it's a nice way to wind down after the week. This review is mainly directed as Daniel who works in the bar serving food. He is consistently diligent, professional and always interested in making your experience more meaningful. He has great attention to detail, knows... More

Many thanks for your very kind review Niamh. As a regular customer you are probably aware that Daniel has been with us many years and we are delighted with the rapport that Daniel has with all our customers. As everyone knows it is getting harder and harder to get good, reliable and responsible people to fill these positions and we... More

I would most definitely stay at this hotel again, it was recommended to be my a friend, and I would definitely pass on the recommendation. The staff were fantastic and so was the food. The room we had was very spacious, clean and well decorated. Already looking to plan our next visit

Me and my boyfriend are just back from a two night stay in this hotel. We stayed in room 120 which was on the ground floor & it was a twin room. The room was spotless and the beds were very comfortable. It took a while for the water to go hot for a bath as it kept changing from... More

Thanks for your review Aidan. As you have pointed out we are about 20 minutes walk from the City Centre but the bus stop outside runs every 30 minutes to the City Centre and also to Mahon Point Shopping centre, the largest in Munster. More

I stayed in this hotel purely because I was on business. The rooms are not worthy of a review, lets just say they are quite simply horrific. The carvey at lunch time is quite simply thrown up food that looks and tastes very bland and dreary indeed. I ate roast beef that was considerably tough in texture. When asking the... More

Thank you for taking the time to write not one but two reviews. In the interests of transparency I believe that we should inform other reviewers that we objected to a review you posted earlier this year to as being suspicious and it was subsequently removed by Tripadvisor. It is also worth pointing out that another hotel which you reviewed... More

Very nice room. Food in the restaurant excellent and will need to go on a diet as the portions were so generous. Staff helpful and friendly. Would definitely stay here again. Good location for exploring the area.

OK firstly I have to rate Commons Inn as 3 stars because in comparison to other, more luxurious, hotels that is what it is worthy of. However if the friendliness of the owner could be rated I would give Commons 5 stars! He is a gentleman and can not do enough for the guests. I took my husband here for... More
