Description: The setting of this stylish restaurant is especially impressive in summer as it overlooks our enclosed gardens and you can enjoy the long, bright evenings while sampling Head Chef's fantastic creations. The menu is extremely versatile including the freshest seafood and locally sourced meat dishes. The restaurant is set within a dramatic & glamorous backdrop, inspired by the eponymous flower.

We had an occasion to celebrate recently and we chose Hayfield Manor. We had been there before so we knew it would be a good night. However, it surpassed all our expectations. From the moment we entered the hotel, we were treated like VIPs and made feel very welcome. We were quite early so we went in to the bar where we enjoyed pre-dinner drinks, which were served with great professionalism and charm. Our dinner was superb, each course a joy to behold and the suggestion given on the choice of wine was also excellent. The desserts came with a personalised greeting, which I thought was a lovely touch. We adjourned to the bar where there was good music, not too loud!!
Staff were professional yet very pleasant and not pretentious. A wonderful evening!!

The occasion was our daughters graduation. Our whole experience from time of arrival in the bar to departure that evening from the restaurant was top class. This is a 5 star hotel restaurant and from the setting to the hospitality received from all of the staff we met, this hotel is ideal for any special occasion. The presentation of the dishes was superb and the flavours of the food complimented the presentation. Can highly recommend the The New Zealand wine. It is wonderful to experience this standard of food and hospitality. Thank you to all.

In fact, something special. We stayed last week at the Hayfield Manor and decided at the last minute to eat at the hotel restaurant instead of something else that we had booked in advance. (After a long day on the train and walking for several hours around Cork, we got lazy.) Orchids is a beautifully decorated "special occasion" restaurant that we enjoyed from start to finish. Expensive but worth it.

Very suprised that this restaurant is not listed as number one in cork.
Truely outstanding in every aspect.
The menu has been crafted in an inspirational manor and is an absolute credit to its creator. It is rare to be able to enjoy Michelin quality food at resonable prices and to have this special place in my hometown is truely a gift.
Can't wait to return to this outstanding restaurant.
Thank you to all the staff for a lovely evening.

The setting and restaurant are fabulous, no question about that.

Staff are friendly and helpful, but for a 5 star place, you would expect just that little extra for the money. They made a few simple mistakes, which was a shame.

Food over all was very nice, but some of the dishes were a little bland - Again the WOW factor was missing a little for me.

That said we had a lovely evening, great bottle of wine and we would go again.
