Ireland for couples
Head to the southern coast and the starting point (or finish, depending on which way you look at it) of the Wild Atlantic Way, Kinsale in Co. Cork. Known for its restaurant scene, the recommendations will come in thick and fast. There’s Fishy Fishy, Bastion, and Finn’s Table to name a few (don’t forget to make reservations). Pop into The Black Pig Wine Bar for pre-dinner drinks and enjoy a local Blacks of Kinsale beer or gin in Dalton’s pub along with some live music. Book a romantic room in The Old Bank House hotel, a charming guesthouse in the centre of town complete with cosy residents lounge for a game of cards or chess.
