FIVE prominent West Cork pubs have been named among the 27 Irish bars recognised in the recently released 2017 Michelin ‘Eating Out In Pubs’ Guide.
This ensures that Cork has the second largest amount of pubs acknowledged by the guide of any county, trailing only Derry, which has six recommended spots to its name.
The commended pubs include Mary Ann’s of Castletownshend, Poacher’s Inn of Bandon, Deasy’s of Clonakilty, Cronin’s of Crosshaven and Toddies at the Bulman in Kinsale.
All locations had been listed in the previous guide and this year successfully retained their positions.
Toddies at the Bulman also retained its title as one of several ‘Inspector’s Favourites’. According to the guide, this label was awarded to ‘establishments found to be particularly charming and which offer something extra special’.
This year’s guide includes commentary on the fine food being served at over 525 pubs across Ireland and the UK. It is available now, in bookshops and online at travel.michelin.co.uk, for €15.99.
