Good Things Cafe has now moved to Skibereen, Co Cork. The standard of food and service continues good. We had lunch there twice. Both good. Onion soup and fish soup worth the journey. Well worth a visit if you are in West Cork this summer.

This sometime cookery school but more often restaurant has a lovely homely feel and an slightly unusual range of dishes eaten at small tables a little close together but with great service. Some delicious fish and great Cork food.

Excellent food served in a relaxed atmosphere. Lots of local produce with the chef's distinctive signature.
