A short drive from Cork City Center is the town of Kinsale. The streets of this town are full of shops and cafes perfect for wandering. We popped into the Blue Haven Cafe for lunch but regardless of where you end up for lunch I highly recommend ordering a seafood dish.
Every October for the past 40 years this town puts on a gourmet food festival. We were lucky enough to be in town during this festival. While we did not participate in festival we did get to observe the Mad Hatter’s escorted food tour where everyone was dressed for dining with the Mad Hatter.
This town is made for leisurely meals and endless hours of wandering!
