Myself and my hubby went down to West Cork for our anniversary last weekend and ended up here one of the nights. The booking was last minute but they fit us in no problem. The country house is nice but there was not much of an atmosphere in the restaurant to be honest as the restaurant was not too busy. Hubby had a pint of Murphys and I ordered the Amaretti cocktail and my god, what a refreshingly gorgeous tasting drink. If you like almond flaours then you HAVE to try this drink. We are now going to source amaretti liquer and recreate this ourselves at home. I could drink buckets of it - yummy!! :) The service was good but I have to say have had better and warmer welcomes in country houses. I'm probably nit picking now as we went to another local place the next nigth and had such great food and service that I cant help but compare. We both had seafood and fish and all meals were very simple but tasty. They respect the produce there and do not do much to the food especially the seafood. We had scallops that had only come in an hour and half previous so they were super fresh! An all round good experience and would definately recommend.
