Blarney Castle - a medieval castle. Please - watch the low doorway if you are tall!
Mizen head- the very southwestern part of Ireland with the "fog signal station"
Good food on tours
Glasson Village Restaurant
worth a special trip if you are not already staying in Glasson's B&B, within the village
Kinsale - town with bird watching, good food and the houses painted in happy colours
Heron's Cove -
fresh fish! We liked this place very much!
You can watch the harbour while waiting for your food, no fast food here, and they use products from the county in their kitchen. From the fish to the butter and the vegetables.
Suddenly we noticed that the boat bobbing in the water some moments ago, now looked more like a stranded whale and lying on its side. Large flocks of seabirds were picking in the mud for mussels and other things of "birdie nam-nam", it was the tide!
Then we got our plates of seafood, and we dawdled at the table with such a view quite a long time, before we started for Mizen Head. Heron's Cove - a nice place both for birds and people!
Mr Bumbles Restaurant -
good food too (beef)! Mr Bumble?? The name seems familiar, does it not, from the cartoon "Tom Puss" still running in many daily papers.
Irish Chocolates - Butlers - three cafes in Dublin, near Trinity College, with hot drinking chocolate/cocoa (and whipped cream), and do buy some boxes of chocolates, your last chance is at the airport!
