I've reviewed several places in Kinsale and all have been a delight, as was this.
We popped in here on Easter Sunday as it was open for food, even though most places serving alcohol are closed for the religious holiday. They explained that the local Guarda was OK providing we were eating which we did, and in fact the local constabulary checked in to make sure all were behaving. Felt like I was in a soap opera!
Anyway, we were warming welcomed and found a corner by the window. Six of us came in and we ordered olives and items from the Charcuterie, all of which were bloody delicious; in fact my mouth is still watering. We chose a Pinot Noir which was also delightful and we sat and put the world right in a wonderful atmosphere. It wasn't too busy, probably because of the holiday, but the locals were also very friendly so we felt right at home. The stag would check on us periodically to make sure everyone was happy without being intrusive and next time I'm in Kinsale I will definitely come back.
I stayed at the Olde Bakery B&B which is a 100 yard stroll from here, which reminds me; there's another great watering hole 100 yards in the other direction which we also loved so I must find that and review it too!!
The only disappointing episode while in Kinsale was a boat trip but other than that, delightful place and delightful people!! A must visit and make sure you call in here when you come!!
