We stayed here our last night in Ireland for our honeymoon and the staff here couldn't be better. They are very friendly and provide great service. The food and drinks here were the best we had on our trip and our server Daniel is hands down the best. Not only did he give us phenomenal service he gave us great... 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

On a recent visit to the Commons Inn, I was very pleasantly surprised with the recent renovations. 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!

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

Many thanks for your review Patrick. We were delighted to welcome you back to the Commons Express Inn. As you rightly pointed out weekends here at The Commons Express Inn are extremely busy, even during the winter season, mainly due to our location. Free parking and excellent public transport means that you don't have to negotiate Cork's one way system,so... 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

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
