    Sounds like an idyllic weekend was had – fish or no fish! Hoping to get out with Atlantic Sea Kayaking while we’re down over Easter – we might have to make a pit stop in Inchydoney en route home too…

      It sounds like you’ve a treat in store! Have you seen Kristin’s report on that seaweed foraging kayak trip? It’s at A West Cork Weekend.

      If you’re just stopping into Inchydoney Lodge for lunch, I’d recommend the seafood chowder in the bar. We had a taster at dinner on Friday night and I would have been very happy with a bowl of that and some of the fantastic bread that they make in-house.

    lovely Caroline. What a perfectly tranquil weekend and that walnut bread…… say no more

    • Caroline says:

      I had a slice of the walnut bread for breakfast the first morning and didn’t stop talking about it from then on! Might have to try recreating it at home. Looking forward to making the Cheddar, Stout and Black Pudding Bread from Rosscarbery Recipes too.

    Sounds like a great time was had by all. Even the littlest one!

      I think the Small Girl loves getting away without Little Missy around to take all the attention! Plus, she was really looked after at the hotel – staff taking her while we had lunch, a fantastic babysitter for dinner, a comfy cot of her own – what more could she need?

    I watched the tweets and photos last weekend – almost as good as being there!! 🙁
