AMAZING!! I have been studying abroad in Ireland for 2 months and this is the best food I've had here by FAR. Amazingly tasty, beautiful presentation, friendly service, and reasonable prices. 10/10 would recommend!

We love this restaurant and we always book well in advance. You get a lovely greeting from Pat at the door. I hate being left waiting at the door of any restaurant. There is a nice atmosphere. Food is great delicious and beautifully presented. Looking forward to revisiting this place soon

O'Donovan's is directly across from the road to the Midleton Distillery . Have a whiskey tasting and then follow it up with a great home cooked meal at O'Donovan's.Pat,the owner provides the good service and suggests the perfect wine to pair with your meal. We have never been disappointed at O'Donovan's.

My wife and I recently had dinner here for my birthday and we were both really impressed. There's a good selection of things on the menu, if you like fish then you're in luck because there's 4/5 different fish mains and all of them sounded amazing. I went for the Hake topped with a Mediterranean vegetable and Parmesan crust...it was... More

This restaurant must be one of the most under rated in cork. Fantastic food and great service. The cheese and beetroot bon bons were truly one of the best things I've ever eaten. Highly recommended
