Incredible selection of fresh fish and meat that must rival the best around the world. Great range of stalls: produce, vintage, bread and chocolate. Well worth a visit. Would like to have flown some fish home.

Having arrived early for my flight back to the uk, I decided to try out the food hall. Nice and friendly and I had freshly cooked fish and chips within 10 minutes. Now I wouldn't expect the quality of food at an outlet like this to be much more than ok, but I totally underestimated this spot. The fish was... More

Two of us travelling to London - one order of roast chicken and vegetables - one order of fish and chips. Was told the fish and chips would be "about 5 minutes" - fair enough. Queued for some minutes for a cup of tea and then queued again to pay by which time the chicken meal was stone cold. Took... More

My Husband and I recently visited The Cork's Food Market at Cork airport and it was most dissappointing. We both had scrambled egg and toast and a pot of tea. By the time we got the table it was lukewarm and not very tasty. It was quite expensive aswell. It did not look very clean with dirty tables and cutlery... More

This is the only place at Cork to get a variety of main meals, everywhere else does all day breakfasts, burgers etc. It is reminiscent of a work canteen or school lunches but provides edible food at a reasonable price so will sustain you through your journey. My top tip is to eat from the wok station as you know... More

Last visit before leaving Cork was for early breakfast. In comparison to what we are used to in Cork the breakfasts were not piping hot and were slightly underseasoned. Other than that the breakfast was nice and coffee as well. Location just next to security which is also ideal.

Recently visited airport whilst waiting for a plane to heathrow . Wanted something to eat before going through to departures . At the top of the escalator there is an impressive looking help yourselves type establishment . At 6pm , I guess that would quite a busy time it was all shut down and nobody about to ask !

Had to review just to compliment the humus I was lucky enough to purchase. Was the best humus I have ever tasted. Market was ok, but if you are a humus lover it is not to be missed.

While the food tasted OK the take and area around the table is terrible. The table has left over food and the floor is covers with bits of food and rubbish. When I pointed or the state of the table my waitress told me she was 'doing the best she can' but refused to even wipe down the table.
