Sunday 19th – Kinsale and yet another ferry to Cobh…..
This is where I stayed last night – I wheeled the bike off the drive so I didn’t wake people when I started it!
I left Bantry and took a back road down to a gorgeous road next to the water on the inlet that has Courtmacsherry on the other side – don’t know what the inlet is called.
Then on to Kinsale – there is something about this place that reminds me of Dartmouth not that, typographically is is much like it. I guess it’s the inlet and the yachts! Had luck in Kinsale – a bit disappointing and felt bloody cold sitting outside to eat!
Then got the ferry across to Cobh (pronounced Cove), once called Queenstown. Cobh is a major port taking tour ships and is infamously known as the last port of call for the Titanic and the port of departure of poverty stricken Irish people heading for new lives in America!
From Cobh drive out through Lismore (nice town) to the weird place I am staying tonight where you go in and find your own room without meeting anyone and they don’t do breakfast but still charge 100 euros for the benefit.
Had a slap up chicken curry with TWO different vegetables here in a friendly pub in Cappoquin!! Here chips and mash are counted as two separate veg!!
