Bunnyconnellan’s a must visit
If you don’t get to visit Bunnyconnellan’s during this fine spell, be sure and treat yourself at some stage during the summer. It is a terrific visit and you’ll have great views as you dine, over across the mouth of Cork Harbour to the lighthouse at Roche’s Point. But, even if the weather is not clear, you’ll still enjoy some serious food in this iconic Cork restaurant.
I was there last Wednesday evening and, believe it or not, it was showing 22 degrees at 7.00pm as we sat down to eat. By the way, if you really want a window seat, be sure and book ahead.
I got the “job” of picking the wine and reckon I’ll get to keep it (the job, that is!) as the Chateau Belingard Cote de Bergerac Blanc, a great blend, fresh on the palate, went down a treat. I think Karwig Wines carry it if you’d like to try a bottle a home.
Bunny’s was busy, had been busy all day, but service was fine and soon the starters appeared. The Golden Fried Brie, the Fish Cake and my Marinated Shredded Beef Roll all went down well. Quite a choice here and we ate mainly from the specials.
Two of the party picked the Pan Fried Fillet of Brill on Red Lentil Ragu with asparagus and honey roast parsnips (22.90). For me, it was the Pan Fried Sea Bass on Lyonnais potato roasted with tuna and marjoram (21.90). After that round, it was another unanimous vote of confidence for the chef.
One fell out of contention before the final hurdle and the two of us remaining each went for the scrumptious Eton Mess (6.00).
Mentioned Bunny’s to two people during a trip to Beara and Kenmare last weekend and both had fond memories of the place. One, who had lived in Cork in the 70s, was thrilled to hear it was still going strong as he had been a regular there. A much younger lady told me it was their favourite destination when they were giving school a skip
