Currans Restaurant, Adelaide Street, Cork

During an extended visit to the Mercy Hospital last Sunday Jean, Elaine, Henry and I went to Currans for a break and a bite to eat. Check them out at The initial problem was access to the restaurant. The ramp at the front door was too short and too sharp to be of use to a wheelchair user. I almost tipped over when I tried to get in on my own. The wheel chair accessible toilet is next to the main toilets but is not well signposted, in fact almost hidden in the corner. I use the word accessible loosely as it is accessible but not usable unless you want to do your business with the door open or else park your chair outside and “walk” in. I demonstrated the difficulties to the manager who said that he would pass the word along to the owner. The solution again is simple. Change the door to outward opening. A quick and easy solution. I must get in the habit of taking photographs in future as a picture tells a thousand words. Accessibility Star Rating 1
