Had breakfast and an evening meal in the place. Food good quality and value if you go for the 50euro family offer. However waiting staff not very helpful or attentive, seemed to filter down from senior staff resulting in a bad atmosphere.

We had a gorgeous hot lunch here from the carvery, and at 10 euro per plate, what value. Everything was beautifully fresh, tasty and a huge portion size. My elderly dad had loin of bacon. They gave him two large slices, mashed potato, cabbage, carrots, roast potato and parsley sauce. He said 'I'll never eat all that', and proceeded to... More

We had to leave home early to be in Cork for an appointment for early one Saturday morning. We wondered where to stop for breakfast and were advised by a few people to get to Cork, and go to the Silver Springs for breakfast, and that we wouldn't regret it. How right these people were. We had full Irish breakfasts... More

I had to organize a family event to cater for 80+ family and friends the staff in the Watermarq restaurant couldn't have been more helpful, they were extremely pleasant and very obliging whenever we had a request. The food was amazing, I couldn't fault it in anyway, our compliments to the chef. I would highly recommend this venue to anyone... More

Myself and some of my friends met in the lounge bar for a meal and a few catch up drinks. There were 10 of us in total and ordered a few different items from the menu, from steaks, pork and burgers to chicken pasta and toasties. When our food arrived it was cooked to our liking, presented beautifully and tasted... More

The staff were excellent & food was fantastic, I’m always a bit hesitant at eating in hotels but this was a revelations- thus eating there two nights in a row! They have a 2 course menu which comes with a glass of wine or a soft drink which was €19.50 on Friday & €25 on Saturday. The restaurant was very... More

Starter was disgusting and some of the staff were unpleasant. Disappointing as we were celebrating a birthday. On the up side main courses were good.

We were staying at the excellent Belvedere Lodge B&B just a 2 minute stroll down the road from Silver Springs and decided rather than driving into town one night we would eat at the Watermarq. We went on a Sunday night; arrived at 7ish and left at 10.00ish, because the food and ambience were just so nice. I was travelling... More

We ate here as part of the hotel package which included supper. The restaurant was virtualy empty and the service was good. We all had different dishes and concurred that it was all excellent. As we didn't pay I can't comment on the price.
