About The K Lounge and The Fairbanks

The K Lounge is our relaxed lobby venue perfect for catching up over a coffee, having a light lunch or in-between snack, or enjoying a classic Afternoon Tea in the sparkling light reflected from the river. - See more at: http://www.thekingsley.ie/the-k-lounge/#sthash.BuWJ65uk.dpuf


The chic Fairbanks Restaurant at The Kingsley is so named in a nod to the famous Cork ballad ‘The Banks of My Own Lovely Lee’, a song beloved by Corkonians which celebrates the beauty of the city and its river. A sophisticated and elegant space in which to spend time over a leisurely and enjoyable meal nestled in the heart of this four star hotel in Cork, Fairbanks is where our Executive Chef Gary Burke gets to indulge his most creative side. - See more at: http://www.thekingsley.ie/fairbanks-restaurant/#sthash.WYQ4tT5y.dpuf

Afternoon Tea is served in the K Lounge from 1.30pm-5pm daily & should be pre-booked to avoid disappointment.

Great Venue, setting. A relaxing ambience. The food and drink was excellently prepared, presented and was very scrumptious.

We requested and were assured that we could get options for gluten free meals. On arriving the restaurant were not able to provide this and menu was limited to very plain food. Salmon or chicken fillet. If you can’t provide the options then please don’t tell you can when reserving.

The Prosecco was completely over priced, having booked the afternoon tea online weeks in advance when we arrived the table wasn’t ready, which I was a bit annoyed about! The food was only ok. I’ve had afternoon tea in other hotels in cork that was much nicer and better value for money.

Beautiful meal - fab setting overlooking the river - food & service excellent - lovely touch with the extra dessert plate for confirmation child - she was thrilled with that. - staff very nice & helpful - lovely day & occasion for the family .... only slight criticism i would have - I cant remember what we paid 3 years ago for my sons confirmation, but i was surprised at cost of €36 pp - i felt it was a little expensive for lunch - however i would still reccomend the kingsley to friends ...albeit with a caveat on the cost!

We had the most amazing experience. Our waitress could not have been more accommodating and the staff went above and beyond for my diabetic Dad. He recieved the most amazing afternoon tea and he was also very impressed. We'll be back for sure. Thank you! Emma

It was a lovely day & staff were helpful, but they were very busy & we had to call them a few times for tea top ups etc, also weren't offered herbal tea's as an option. They were very nice & we did enjoy our afternoon tea.Thanks.
