After visiting the lovely main street of Kinsale, we stopped for dinner. So many wonderful choices on the menu to choose from. We particularly loved the short ribs,the warm hearty soups, and the "chips" were the very best ever!

Lovely lunch here before tackling the hike to Charles Fort. The seafood chowder was literally the best we had in a two week trip.

Enjoyed a traditional Irish lunch of Fish & Chips. The real winner were the fries- amazing seasoning! Loved the hot chocolate, too. Such a cute bar and restaurant, sat by the window and people watched- such a perfect sunny day in a darling seaport village.
