This place is on a pretty cove away from all the hustle and bustle of Kinsale. The solitude is wonderful. The country house is a little older, but the rooms are very large. We had a balcony overlooking the cove. The hosts are very friendly and their meals are very good. They have a drawing room where guests can gather after a meal to chat. The grounds are very well manicured.

Today the we have what the Irish call a 'soft' day. This means a slightly misty drizzle off and on, with cloud cover most of the day.

Now, what I like about the Irish, is that they're not stingy with their servings of mashed potatoes. Yuuuummmm. First cauli we've seen since leaving our vege garden too. A superb meal.

Over the ferry to West Cork. We stopped at a Centre c-store for build-your-own sandwiches which we ate at tables in the store.
We arrived at Bantry fairly early so decided to drive the Beara Peninsula. Down at the end we took the cable car ride over to Dursey Island and back. Then we headed for Sneem.
Dinner was in a hotel pub and quite tasty although the staff was extremely busy and we had to hunt them down and ask ...
... when he is fishing. The captain and his granddaughter are quite disappointed. The tour is to last an hour but because Fungi is playing hide and seek, he extends the tour by another hour.
Every time we see Fungi and then get into position, Fungi disappears. Because of the rain, my jury-rigged camera bag (Ziplock bag) is on the camera, taking away my speed but preserving the lens and body, but I've taken off the automatic turn off and dialed ...
... sandwiches, which were small but served on a really hearty, crunchy brown bread. The lady had several different options for dessert, and I got chocolate biscuit cake with cream. Katherine and Michelle both got hot rhubarb crumble with cream. All in all, we left satisfied.
Walked back down along Main Street, where we were tickled to see a pub with Guinness signs in Gaelic. Irish really is impossible. With French or Spanish or even German, you might not know what the word ...
