Fodor's Expert Review Heron's Cove
Although only minutes by foot from the main road and Goleen's village center, this harborside retreat is a peaceable kingdom—expect to see herons outside the window. "Fresh fish and wine on the harbour" is the motto here. The restaurant, in Sue Hill's modern house (she also offers bed and breakfast) is well run and extremely civilized. Off-season (September–April) dinner must be booked in advance.
Goleen, Co. Cork Ireland
- Fresh, local seafood served by the waterside
