The Ivory Tower

Cork, Ireland
Restaurant

The Ivory Tower is an intimate, quirky dining room above some shops on Oliver Plunkett Street, the busy heart of Cork city centre. Chef Seamus O’Connell is something of a Cork legend, a maverick, an inventor, a supremely talented chef who fuses Irish ingredients with French, Mexican and Japanese traditions. His tasting menus are famous, the experience is rarely less than intriguing and it will almost certainly be a meal to remember.

Durrus Cheese

Durrus
Cheese

When Jeffa Gill began making cheese on her farm in 1979, it was part of her pioneering spirit and drive to provide for her family from her own small-holding in West Cork. Jeffa also wanted to capture something of the goodness of this ancient farming land in her unique, hand-crafted cheeses. Today, almost four decades later, Durrus cheeses are still made by hand, using traditional techniques on their own farm.
