Both were tasty dishes. Decent pint of Guinness to wash it down. All in all a nice enough,cosy little spot. I'd say it's lovely... More

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

Our intention was to eat in the Titanic pub but as the kitchen was closed I did a quick glance through trip advisor & this is how we found The Quays, what a lucky find! It was a beautifully warm day in October & there is a fabulous outdoor area where we sat overlooking the bay. Stunningly beautiful views are... More

4 of us went out for my mother in laws birthday dinner. Lovely food and great atmosphere. we ate at night so it was dark out and unfortunately didn't get to enjoy the views. Not a cheap night out but was worth the money.

I've recently driven to Cobh for the 2nd time and Quays has been my lunch choice for the second time too. The food is fresh and and well presented and I was fortunate enough to have blue sky for both visits so the view was fantastic too. Add to this the quick and friendly service and you have the recipe... More

Unfortunately I am boring when it comes to this restaurant. The steak is always so good (rare) that I never eat anything else. During the summer there is the option of eating outside looking out on Cork harbour. Never fails to deliver.
