    Yes! Sadly true. When in Ireland, the meals that were prepared for us in homes were lovely. But I found the food in restaurants to be both abysmal and really expensive. And I spent a lot of time in a certain homewares chain, because at least their cafes were certain to have a selection of great, fresh salads. Even travelling round the country it was the same story. I was really pleased to see your review of the Bridgestone guide because I can buy that next time and find some good places to eat!

    Where were you in Ireland, Plum? It can be really difficult to get your hands on decent food when you’re travelling around – my regular trip from near Charleville, down south in Co Cork, to Dublin (about 200km, I think) has no decent tea/lunch stops and it’s pretty difficult to locate nice cafés in the cities and towns too. The Bridgestone Guides are great and there’s also Georgina Campbell’s Best of the Best, another guide to eating/staying/drinking around Ireland. Next time you’re about in Ireland let me know and I’ll point you in the direction of some good food!
