The Quays has a great view. We were only in Cobh one evening and the first restaurant our B&B hostess recommended was not open. The restaurant was packed, even though no cruise ships were in town, and the place is very tight quarters. The menu is exceptionally limited. My husband has a shellfish allergy which can usually be accommodated with... More

Having seen this rated as number one in Cobh we were looking forward to having dinner here. As we were going on a Saturday night we booked thinking it would be busy. There were only two other tables occupied. The door to the bar was open and there was sport on the tv. It would have been nice if the... More

Quite possibly the most friendly bar I've ever been into. Great drink! Great food! And close to the cruise ship that we work on. A great way to spend the day. A must visit if you are in Cobh!

This restaurant was recommended by a concierge in Cork Hayfield Manor Hotel. How right he was! Lovely ambience inside and out. A lovely & sunny fall day we totally enjoyed some pints, perfect pumpkin soup with break and butter, and a cheesecake mousse to die for. Very laid back and we could relax without being rushed at all. We enjoyed... More
