Had enough time during our Shore Excursion for lunch in Kinsale. Stopped in The White House Pub. Fish chowder was great. Also got a seafood sandwich and salad and some steamed muscles, which were delicious.

The daily specials are a great way to go, but I saw a steak delivered to another table that also looked amazing. The starters may be a bit overpriced but the scallops we had were very good. Great pub atmosphere.

The place to enjoy real Irish feeling with great food, a few pints of local beer and need to go several times to have fun and enjoy the various musicians. Or as they say there good Craic and Ceol Either Mike Senior or Junior will take good care of you They also have rooms but need to plan ahead

Visited last night was not disappointed. Friendly service, lovely surroundings and atmosphere and the meal was superb. Had a steak sandwich and it was as nice as I ever had. Very reasonable too which is a bonus. Highly recommended.
