Hello and welcome to the second post of our Irish Thanksgiving trip!
Our first night was spent in Kinsale, Ireland in County Cork. County Cork and specifically Kinsale, are known for the growing gourmet food scene. Unlike our previous trip to Ireland, this one was (for the most part) filled with really great food! We are excited to share all the yummy food we ate. After taking an evening stroll along Pearse Street, we came across The White House Restaurant, where we had our first Irish dinner. The first course consisted of Wild Atlantic Way clam chowder soup with locally sourced seafood- literally the freshness of the fish was so vibrant. In true Irish style, our courses were accompanied by soda bread, unfortunately, we do not have a picture of the bread because it was way too good and we were out by the time we thought of taking a snap…whoops! Our second course, consisted of beer battered fish & chips and scallops. Our White House visit ended with a divine White House Chocolate cake with Glenowen Farm Ice-Cream Selection with a Rich Toffee Sauce. In conclusion, we highly recommend The White House Restaurant and would dine there again the next time we are in town. Before moving on to our next meal in Kinsale, we want to share some beauty we saw as we walked around the city. Our last meal in Kinsale was breakfast at The Old Bank House Cafe on Pearse Street. There I enjoyed avocado toast topped with an over-easy egg, Adam enjoyed (of course) a traditional Irish breakfast. We couldn’t resist the baked goods display so we grabbed a few to go for our road trip to Wicklow National Park. On that note, we will see you on our next post about Wicklow!
Cheers & thanks for reading!
