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.

Great place for lunch! Us Aussies wanted to try a traditional Beef Guinness stew and we were not disappointed. Tasty meal at a reasonable price and friendly service
