I was visiting Cork in August and dropped into the Commons as I always do when I'm coming up from Limerick. Its a great spot for a few drinks and a bite to eat. The bar staff, especially Denise are excellent and really make an effort to know everyone by name. The owner always comes over to say hello and... More

Me and my family stayed here for the weekend, we really enjoyed our stay and have to say I will have to look very hard to find staff as friendly and helpful as the staff at this hotel. A very special mention to Daniel in the restaurant who could not do enough for us and no matter what was asked... More

We stayed three nights at the Commons Inn and found the overall stay was very good. The price was right at just £124.00 for three nights although breakfast was not included in the price. The hotel is a couple of miles out of Cork City but the bus stop is right outside and it costs 2 euros each way in... More

The hotel was in an ideal location as it was just outside the city, The receptionist was very friendly and the room was comfortable and spacious. The shower was amazing but all that was ruined by a bad night sleep. The pipes in the room starting banging at 5 am and continued until 7 am. We didn't sleep from 5... More

The rooms have all been updated which gave it a clean fresh look.Both the bar food & the restaurant definitely deserve 10 out of 10. The staff as always were both attentive & welcoming. This is overall great value in both accommodation &... More

On arrival to the hotel reception desk we heard a guest complaining about something with their room and to be honest we nearly left, and I’m glad to say we didn’t, we checked in and our room was really lovely and from the smell freshly painted and spotlessly clean, when we went to our car to get our luggage it...

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!
