Oz Haven, Co. Cork

We went for a lovely lunch in Oz Haven in Oysterhaven yesterday afternoon. Wow, what a meal!
I started with Clonakilty black and white pudding flavoured with exotic spices, a steak for the main course, and a delicious chocolate cake with orange sauce for dessert. I’m getting hungry again just thinking about it!
Paul Greer and his staff are great and I heartily recommend a visit here! Sunday lunch is around 26 Euro per person which is very reasonable considering the quality of the food. Ring them on 021 477 0974 and book a table now! 🙂
(No, I’m not being paid for this, but Paul’s a great host and we enjoyed our meal!)

Boole woz ‘ere

George Boole, the inventor of boolean algebra lived in the last house on the right of this photo from 1849 to 1855.

I’m certain that most Cork people pass this house daily and haven’t a clue as to it’s previous occupant’s contribution to the world we live in today.

The Blarney Stone Restaurant

We’re just back from Blairs Inn in Cloghroe. I can definitely recommend that establishment.
I don’t know about this place. To judge by the mail on the ground inside the door I’d say it’s shut for the winter.

Mackey’s in Blarney

Mackey’s is a restaurant in Blarney which I have yet to visit. To be honest, I haven’t been to most of the establishments around here and don’t expect to call to this one any time soon. Their prices are just a little expensive.
In the reflection you can see The Muskerry Arms, Supervalu and a tourist shop.
