Lifestyle

We live close to the sea, there are lots of beaches and cliff top walks. We spend a lot of time in Crosshaven in the Summer sitting outside drinking coffee at River's End or going for food/barbecues/craft beer/local cider at Cronin's Pub. Kinsale is just down the road a great place to relax too. We sometimes pop across to Cobh last port of call of the Titanic and still a destination for cruise liners; Midleton great farmers market and of course Irish whiskey; Youghal still has its medieval walls and an amazing beach. Cork city is a great place to walk around. At the weekends we're often in the English Market finding really good food or having a coffee in one of the many cafes around town. Great pubs too, the Marquee concerts in the Summer and all kinds of night life for the younger set
