    The real deal

    The Bulman is a little Kinsale pub that hails back to the 1800s and has catered to myriad sailors, coastguards, merchants and even the odd landlubber over the years.

    The pub’s walls are shaded by great wooden beams under a bronze-coloured ceiling, and they’re plastered with paintings of ships and pictures of ocean scenes.

    Grab a window seat and gaze across Summercove Harbour, and you’ll swear off bad nautical-themed pubs for good!

    Toddies Restaurant, The Bulman

    Fresh delicacies

    You can talk with the locals propped at the bar or take a seat the award-winning Toddies Restaurant, which serves up excellent seafood.

    When you’re this close to the Atlantic Ocean (a mere 10 feet, in fact!), you have to make the most of it! Sit down to freshly caught seafood, including oysters, crab, and lobsters, or enjoy classics such as BBQ local pork ribs and sea-salted chips, or homemade burgers.
