We enjoyed a gourmet dinner in a lovely setting. We were not very hungry so we both had a lighter meal with wonderful vegetables and sauces. The staff was very perfessional and attentive.

Edible flowers dot the plate (not too much, but just right) and a refreshing palate cleanser punctuates first and second courses. The first course was preceded by a sublime amuse bouche; and...

Our hotel was attached so we stumbled here for a quick breakfast on our way out of town. We got a perfect table next to the waterfall. Made for a great start of the day.

My husband and I had an anniversary dinner here in September. We hadn't eaten here for years and had forgotten how good the food and service were. Between courses there were surprise tasters that were very fun and enjoyable. Our waitress was very friendly and knowledgeable about the food and was glad to answer questions. On the whole a very...

Greenes has a lovely atmosphere, nestled beside a waterfall in the heart of Cork. The food was delicious from the starters , to the main and the complimentary tasters inbetween our ordered meals. The staff was knowledgeable and very professional and we very much enjoyed the meal. High quality food and service !
