Great Food at the Commodore Hotel

Since Head Chef, Ger Duffy, took over the kitchens, here at the Commodore Hotel, the food has come on from strength to strength. The food was always good, but Ger has now brought it on up onto a higher level. With pride we can now say that our food is GREAT!!!

.....and it is down to the pride that Ger, and his team, take in their work.

Ger took over the kitchens at the start of the 2012 summer season. Since then he has changed the menus dramatically....but more importantly Ger has changed the cooking practices. Everything is made freshly. This now goes right down to the basics....even the chips are freshly made. Gone are the days when frozen chips were used. Ger recently invested in a potato peeler and all chips are now freshly made....and they are gorgeous!!! But then everything on the menu is now gorgeous....the steaks are fabulous, the fish and sauces are delicious, the veg is just right, the desserts are to die for. If you are planning to go out for a meal then you wouldn't go far wrong than trying our Captain's Table Restaurant or O'Shea's Bar & Bistro.

Of course Ger has a wealth of experience having worked in many of Cork's top restaurants over the last twenty years and it is great to see Ger bringing that experience back to the kitchen that he first started off in many moons ago.

So why not call down and try it out. You'll be guaranteed....


We also have a diverse range of menus for Parties. If you have a family gathering, party or celebration, whether its a birthday, christening, or whatever, then we can provide a menu to suit all occasions and all requirements. This can start from the simplest of finger food offerings or chicken baskets right through to a full blown sit down meal. Why not give general manager, Robbie Fitzpatrick, and his team a shout on 021-4811277, or send us an email on

In the meantime, we'll leave you with a few pics of Ger and his crew busy at work in the kitchen....some of the finished product....and some of the happy punters!!!
