Enjoyed the atmosphere here, very nice. When we arrived they had no free table. They bring one table with two chairs in a... read more

We visited Cork while on our cruise last week. We were lucky to run into a fabulous cab driver, Chris, who took us to this restaurant after our tour of the city. We asked him to take us to a place that he enjoys and voila! we arrived at The Courtyard on Sober Lane. I understand that the place is... More

I celebrated my 50th birthday here last weekend and found this venue to be central, efficient and enjoyable for all who came. I have been here for other celebrations previously and they have never failed to impress. Food is exceptionally fresh whether you opt for the BBQ option or finger food varieties and staff can not be more helpful. Are... More

New outdoor patio was beautiful and offered comfortable seating for all. Relaxing atmosphere to sit and chat before dinner. "Captain's Table" dining area was beautifully set up. We had been traveling all day yet felt so comfortable in this relaxed, yet elegant setting.

This was my third visit to this establishment and I don't know how it's possible to get better each time, but it was! The food is exquisite, the ambience is delightful but what gets the highest rating is the staff. They are professional, friendly and accommodating. Why, even the owner stops by to chat and check on things. If you... More

I was here today with my partner for an afternoon meal, we booked a table for 5.30pm, but decided to head there earlier and we were able to get the table an hour earlier without any fuss. We had the early bird menu and we were positively delighted at the standard of service and excellent quality of the food. For... More

Recently we travelled to Ireland. We visited the Flying Enterprise on several of the evenings in Cork because of its fabulous atmosphere and great frood. The staff were friendly and responsive to our needs. The food both in the courtyard (pub style cuisine) and the restuarant (fine dining) were the best meals we had in Ireland. On a good weather...
