We took a trip to Bramley Lodge for lunch the other day - such a popular place and I would recommend the apple pie. There is a small fen area across from the restaurant - well worth a look if you're in the area.
We then drove the short journey to Fota to see the Italian Gardens and Orangery which were closed during our last visit and also happened across the Fernery a childhood favourite which was looking beautiful in the sunshine.

Since our move back to Cork last year I've been a regular visitor to the city's charity shops - although not as impressive as some of the Dublin shops there is the odd treasure to be found. So far I've snapped up this rather CK-ish Arklow Pottery Jug which I love, a little orange glass - a bit seventies but I love the shape and this nifty Celtic Irish Fine Earthenware espresso cup. Not bad for a total of 3.50 euro!
I also fell for these chairs in Meadows and Byrne - love the colours and the flower motifs - and a steal at 10euro each!
