Fantastic place to spend an afternoon in Cork. Cheap, nice and great people. Highly recommendable. If you want to have some drinks with friends this is a great place.

The service was very slow- they forgot about us twice! The food was adequate. The fried fish was tasteless. The highlight of the meal was a visit from the owner, who was very engaging. However, despite liking him a lot we cannot recommend the food. Perhaps just go for a drink and enjoy the owners great stories.

The food here was great. They are very family friendly, as they have high chairs. We got their traditional Irish breakfast, which was great. The service was nice and the food was reasonable priced.

Was in Cork for a going away to Australia party for my niece last Saturday night. This was my first time in The Courtyard on Sober Lane. What a find. What a spot. Nothing like it in Dublin as far as I'm concerned. Spacious is an understatement. It was massive. Plenty of outdoor space for the smokers, heaters to keep... More

This was a very poor experience for our party of four on St. Patrick's Day. We sat in the restaurant upstairs which was comfortable but the cutlery and napkins were of very poor quality which was at odds with the nice restaurant surroundings.The food was the" everything with chips" variety circa 1990. It was reasonably cooked but slap-dash in presentation.... More

The Flying Enterprise is a great venue for business gatherings.I recently had to organize a Christmas party for our IT department. I've had to do similar events before and couldn't believe how much more of a pleasant experience organizing this was when doing so with the Flying Enterprise. Ordinarily I find that venues aren't very accommodating and almost don't seem... More
