Midleton/Cobh (and Kenmare), IRELAND area reccos?
Thanks for the Dublin post-arrival reccomendations; we plan to follow many of them! After Dublin we head southwest, two nights in Kenmare, then three in Midleton before returning to Boston. For the Midleton leg, we'll be staying at Ballymaloe House, and plan to have at least one, possibly two evening meals there. But would like to venture off-campus, so to speak, for another. Any ideas of interesting or just good eats in the general area? We'll have a car. Not super high-end, as we've our very game but not very formal kids along.
I suppose I should ask the same question about Kenmare, although we may have plans made for us there already.
In nearby Midleton these two would fit your bill for nothing high-end with kids.
The Farmgate and www.raymonds.ie both of which are just off the High Street.
You might also want to try Cork City in which case I would recommend www.marketlane.ie and www.bodegacork.ie
You'll enjoy the area - I had a great time visiting and Ballymaloe House is really,really special.
