It is like the real White House, lots of people work there, but none of them really care about you. We went in for an early dinner, the place was busy, but not slammed.

A family visit to Kinsale rounded off with a great dinner, in the pub. Family friendly pub with all the character of a great Irish bar. I had the Special of the Day, which was the Sea Bass.

Had enough time during our Shore Excursion for lunch in Kinsale. Stopped in The White House Pub. Fish chowder was great. Also got a seafood sandwich and salad and some steamed muscles, which were delicious.

The daily specials are a great way to go, but I saw a steak delivered to another table that also looked amazing. The starters may be a bit overpriced but the scallops we had were very good. Great pub atmosphere.

We enjoyed sitting at the bar, conversing with the bartender and enjoying wonderful club sandwiches. The service was prompt and the food was delicious.
