Province of Munster, Ireland Food Guide: 5 International food Must-Eat Restaurants & Street Food Stalls in Carrigaline

September 3, 2019 Natalie Tallman

Find out what International restaurants to try in Carrigaline. Carrigaline (Irish: Carraig Uí Leighin, meaning "rock of Ó Leighin") is a commuter town and civil parish in County Cork, Ireland. It is about 14 km south of Cork city which can be reached by car in 25 minutes (along the R611, which passes through the town, and then the N28 Ringaskiddy–Cork road). Carrigaline has grown rapidly in recent years, from a village of a few hundred people into a thriving town, although many locals still refer to it as "the village". The town is one of the key gateways to West Cork, especially for those who arrive by ferry from France.

I found this pub/restaurant totally by accident. I had been travelling, with my two dogs, in a camper van along Cork's lovely coastline when I ran out of gas - including the spare - on a Saturday evening! A response to a frantic call for help directed me to Cork Gas, which is on Forge Hill Road, near Cork Airport, so I made my way there on Sunday so that I wouldn't be searching for it during rush hour on Monday morning. When I spotted the Bull McCabe's across the junction on the Cork airport road I decided to go there for dinner as I couldn't cook in the camper without gas. I also asked if it was possible that I could park up in their car park for the night so that I could get my gas first thing Monday. Let me be clear - this pub/restaurant does not allow camper vans to park there, as I discovered the following morning. But, because I was a woman driving solo, with two dogs, they allowed me to stay the night, gratis and graciously. I'm vegetarian and asked if I could have a veggie pizza and take it out to the van to eat. I got the best pizza I think I have ever eaten in my life - and possibly the biggest too! It was piled high with all sorts of colourful and delicious toppings, and, at just 11 euro, was so big that I couldn't eat breakfast or lunch the following day. And it was piping hot... Earlier, clients as well as staff had responded to my query as to where I could take the dogs for a good run with advice and directions to Blackrock Castle. It was good advice. The following morning, one of the extremely kind staff brought me out the black coffee (all I could manage after the pizza) so that I could drink it outside with my dogs - on leads, of course - beside me. They say food prepared with love and kindness tastes better. I suspect that the cooking skill that went into preparing that pizza would have tasted delicious no matter what - but the kindness I received there certainly added a very special flavour to it all. Again, I repeat, this pub does not allow camper vans to stay over: they were simply responding with kindness to a bit of an emergency. But, if you're driving a car, and you want delicious food, served in a warm and welcoming atmosphere, I couldn't recommend this pub more highly. Thanks, Bull McCabes - you do Cork proud!

We visited Barry’s pub/ restaurant and had a pint in the bustling bar until our table was ready . Excellent food served impeccably by very well mannered waiters made for a lovely night overall. If Carlsberg did bustling pub/ restaurants it would probably be Barry’s of Douglas.

I cannot give Greenes enough stars. Everything here redefined expectations. The service was not on - professional and attentive, but not stuffy. The ambiance was beautiful. There's a small waterfall right outside one window, and a beautiful, small garden outside the other window.And the food. Wow, the food was magnificent. It all started with the bread and butter. 3 different kinds of homemade artisanal bread, served with deliciously creamy butter perched on a stone. The presentation was perfect - creative, elegant, simple. And that was just the bread.I ordered the pork belly stater and the roasted hake & scallops entree. Before these dishes arrived, I was served three petite amuse bouches: a duck liver paté with wasabi seeds and cherry, a warm and juicy beef ball, and a crisp. Each was incredibly tasty.The pork belly with daikon radish and apple was melt in my mouth scrumptious. Little balls of puffed pork crackling provided a delightful and unexpected crunch. Between my started and main, I was ordered with another surprise: a lychee and lime foam palate cleanser. And mission accomplished. My palate was both cleansed and tickled. What a wonderful way to cut through the fat of my pork belly and prepare me for my seafood entree.My entree did not disappoint. Super fresh hake and scallops paired with a light cream sauce and smoked sausage. Delicious.I left with my belly feeling incredible happy and full.

We were in this lovely place last Saturday for tapas. The atmosphere was perfect: lovely music, cozy place, very good food ( I recommend the Portobello mushroom and the Mini burger), good selection of wine. The stuff was very kind and efficient. Perfect place if you are looking for a different night out.
