Lonely Planet, Best in travel

“We were all astounded by the quality of the food we ate in restaurants, particularly in Kinsale, which I think has some of the best restaurants I’ve ever eaten at.”

Pierre Josse, Le Guide du Routard, 2012 edition

“Cork’s dynamicism is reflected in contemporary buildings, bars and arts centres. The best of the city is still happily traditional, though – snug pubs with live-music sessions most of the week, excellent local produce and a genuinely proud welcome from the locals.”
