I'll be in Clonakilty for a week at the end of May--three adults, one child. Whenever I travel to a new place I plot of all the "things to do and eat" on Googlemaps, so I am in the middle of collecting all the information and was hoping to collect a bit more in terms of restaurants/pubs.
I promise I've done my best to read through the threads on food, but most of them are quite old,and it seems some places have disappeared or have reincarnated.
I did a lot of personal research, but when the restaurant doesn't have a website, I tend to shy away (not that having a website is an indicator of quality, I just like to see the menu and prices--personal idiosyncracy!)
I found, of course, Richy's, Gleeson's, Malthouse Granary, O'Keefe's, O'Donavan's and Deasy's; we are on vacation, but at those prices, we will probably only eat at one of those places once or twice. Not to mention, my 8-year-old isn't going to eat much on their menus and I hate to drop E20+ on a dish he'll pick at.
What options are there for low-key lunches/dinners that still allow for a local taste? Also, since the place we are renting has a kitchen, and we are close to the sea, are there local fishmongers of merit? What are the prices like? I know where I grew up on the coast in NJ, there were plenty of fishing co-ops that sold seafood direct from the boat for cheap. We are okay with good pub food (I hope that isn't an oxymoron); however, I am guessing that with a child in tow pubs would only be appropriate for lunch.
