The second dish was a cucumber gazpacho with the fish and really pretty cucumbers stuffed with creme fraiche. At this point, we headed back to the B&B so we could change for our dinner at Fishy Fishy. We ordered the oysters, seafood chowder (tomato based broth), brill with ...

          We got to a mechanic right near our hotel before they closed & will be able to grab the repaired tyre in the morning. The evening was then spent having dinner at a local restaurant & a nice walk around Cork (the rain had finally cleared).
