Proudly local, very individual and a little eccentric, Divas is exactly what you wouldn’t expect to find in the tiny, tucked-away village of Ballinspittle. A half-hour drive from the city and famous for its own baked breads and cakes, lunches and brunches, at Divas you are also very close to the famous surfing beach at Garretstown. It’s a small dining room, so you may have to wait for a table on busy weekends. The eggs really do come from the farm next door.
