Cork Pub that doesn’t sell crisps wins Michelin award

The last two times I was in the Bulman pub in Summercove, Kinsale (down the hill from Charles Fort) I was starving, and asked for crisps, only to be told they don’t sell them, but I could have nuts instead.

But that’s no surprise because the Bulman is a classy establishment with a Restaurant upstairs where tables have to be booked in advance.

In addition the Bulman is in a a spectacular scenic location.

Word reached us today at from Local Labour TD Michael McCarthy that Toddies at the Bulman in Kinsale who have been singled out as one of the ‘inspector’s favourites’ in the Michelin’s Eating Out In Pubs guide for 2016.


Deputy McCarthy also congratulated Mary Ann’s, Castletownshend, Poacher’s Inn, Bandon and Deasy’s Clonakilty who featured in the prestigious list of 590 pubs that appear in the guide which takes in eateries from across the British Isles.

“This is an incredible achievement and really showcases the best that West Cork has to offer in terms of our tradition of hospitality. We are known all over the world for our friendliness, warmth and the hospitality the humble Irish Pub is legendary. This announcement demonstrates that West Cork is truly a wonderful place to visit.”
