Stayed at hotel on our trip and we're too tired to venture out so stopped in for a meal. Good food and also good service without being intrusive. A good option if staying in the hotel.

I've been saying a long time lets call in. On this bank holiday we did just that. They had an excellent menu with plenty to choose from. We went for the sandwich and not disappointed at all. Food and service was excellent and will certainly be calling back. Don't expect you will be disappointed at all with what's on offer

We stayed at the hotel just a half block away, but walked over here for evening drinks one night.....and then Sunday breakfast a day later! Fantastic service by Sara in the bar on both occasions! And the breakfasts were delicious! Highly recommend!

Another fab evening (14/04/17) spent here in the Weir bar. Food and atmosphere was divine. Tended to most of our evening by Sarah who never left us asking for anything, she was always there offering more and was extremely pleasant, professional and mannerly.

This is a long overdue review for a place that I frequently visit. Though the prices are higher than other places in cork, I frequently return as I adore the terrace section of the weir rooms.
