West Cork
donal's irish adventure

Donal and Max are off to West Cork in search of all the culinary delights the Rebel County has to offer. A stop at Gubbeen Farmhouse, home to six generation dairy farmers, to see (and sample!) the cheesemaking process gives Donal a taste of the rich food culture to be found in Ireland's South West. Fueled up and ready to go, Donal and Max decide to take in the dazzling West Cork coastline by sea and try their hand, or in Max's case, paw, at paddle boarding, but soon learn that it's hard to keep your balance when you're surrounded by such breathtaking views! Donal puts his feet up during a relaxing visit to Bantry House Gardens for afternoon tea before getting his hands dirty foraging for wild seaweed in Castletownsend. Next it's off to visit the Queen of Fish Smoking, Sally Barnes in her secluded log cabin in the hills, followed by a visit to Kinsale Harbour where he learns of the chilling local legend of the White Lady of Kinsale. But after a jam-packed journey, Donal knows that the best way to digest the day's adventures is by taking in stillness of water while a local fisherman helps him to whip up a fresh lobster roll at Summercove.
