Brother and sister team Michael and Laura Cashman have rescued a derelict old pub in a very hidden away part of Cork harbour and transformed it into must-visit in the East Cork area. Chef Michael is firmly committed to locally sourced ingredients and Laura looks after the front of house. A real family affair, in a special setting, on a little inlet, overlooking a harbour for pleasure boats. Magical and a half an hour’s drive from the city centre.

Heir Island is a tiny island in majestic Roaring Water Bay in West Cork, and home to The Island Cottage Restaurant. It is, as the name would suggest, a traditional farm cottage, home to a unique restaurant, created by John Desmond & Ellmary Fenton. For the past 25 years, they have accepted small numbers of bookings, the island can only be reached by small boat from a tiny nearby harbour and the menu is set, featuring only what they have harvested locally or sourced from local fishermen and farmers on the day. It is a true one-off experience. An unforgettable evening in a magical setting. Very West Cork. However, they can only accommodate small numbers so please book well in advance.
