First night in Kinsale spent at the Bulman at Summercove. The views over the estuary on the taxi ride down were stunning. The Bulman pub was buzzing when we arrived and we had a couple of drinks downstairs before going upstairs to the restaurant. Gurdev and Tony shared a dozen oysters as a precurser.They certainly looked good and the guys said they were exceptional. That was followed by starters of scampi, spare ribs in a sticky honey sauce(very nice Dawn says) and crab gratin. The mains included monkfish in tempura batter for Gurdev and seared tuna for Tony. We didn’t have desserts but followed with cheese and that was the only disappointment ( it was served too cold) in an otherwise excellent first night in The Emerald Isle.
