Fab Irish Foodie Holiday

This wonderful meal of salmon and shrimp, with Dillisk (dried seaweed) and the obligatory Guinness was a wonderful taste of an amazing place, we loved our recent holiday in South West Ireland, we stayed just outside Cork City, and visited the inspiring English Market, with the best range of seafood I have ever seen.

We visited Frank Hedermans smokehouse, and had perfect beech smoked salmon, which we enjoyed thickly sliced onto sourdough with dillisk (dried seaweed) and the obligatory Guinness.

Mahon Point Farmers Market was inspiring, the range and quality of local produce was stunning, we had wood fired pizza, and the best coffee I have ever tasted. It was great to meet some lovely people who are so passionate about the food they produce. We picked up lots of treats, but our favourite was the Free Range Bacon and Sausages from Woodside Farm, which we loved as a gut busting brunch before we left.

The restaurants we visited were proud of their local produce, but none more so than Kevin Aherne’s Sage in Midleton, where we were welcomed as family, had some stunnigly good local caught Sea Trout, and it was wonderful to see young families tucking into such great food.

We met some lovely people who were rightly proud of their food and county, and I can heartily recommend you visit them and see for yourself.
