We stopped for an evening meal on our way to Cobh. Met by friendly staff who looked after us well. Lovely roast dinner and dessert to send us on our way!

This restaurant has been serving food since about 1650. The descendents still own and run the restaurant. The food, atmosphere and service was great. If you are planning a visit to County Cork in Ireland give this restaurant a try you won't be disappointed.
