Sunday Treats in Ballinskelligs

The summer holidays have started here and everybody is more relaxed. New attractions and activities rang in the summer, like our lovely little country market in Ballinskelligs. Freshly baked cakes and quiches, smoked mackerel and homegrown vegetables, as well as local crafts and some bric-à-brac are being presented every Sunday from 11am to 4pm.
But a very special treat are the musicians who play in the garden or in Barbara´s Beach Cafe. Everybody can join in and everybody is certainly having a good time, which is all a Sunday should be about.

Claire Horgan and Sean Garvey

Barbara has been running the cafe for the last few years. While you are being served home made sandwiches cakes and soup, you can browse through a large collection of lovely, old black and white photographs from the area and all over Ireland, old and new maps, a selection of books and CD's by local writers and musicians and local crafts and knitware. Open all week from 10am to 6pm.
