The first place we stopped by after the 2 hours drive from Dublin for ‘dunch’ is called Tides, before going in – I think it’s important to know that the location of it is right as you leave the beach:

Tides, is owned by the Stephen Patrick Hunt – an Irish international footballer and currently plays for Coventry city in the UK.
Upon entrance to the Bar on the right, there’s a welcoming warm fire for those cold days and nights  in Ireland.
The fire in the bar has a well designed brick wall surrounding it and adds a very welcoming color, on top of that the sofas are incredibly comfy for sitting down with drinks after a long day in case you feel like chilling backwards and watch the TV’s surrounding the place.

The Fish Chowder was a creamy delight, it was so good – we ordered it again the next day in the Restaurant.

Soup of the day was French onion soup, with a brilliantly tasty slice of crunchy cheese inside.

We were so happy, we came back the next day to try the restaurant part and it met our high expectations.
Beautiful decor of the tables and chairs make it extremely beach-like.
The ‘sandy-white-beige’ colors will make you feel as if you’re sitting with a table on the sands of the beach.

We ordered the Fish chowder again as it was a delight earlier and we weren’t disappointed.20160410_171106

The second starter was the Crusty cob loaf with three drips of pumpkin, hummus and tzatziki sauce –  it was so tasty there was nothing left on the plate.20160410_171119 20160410_171113

This main dish is pretty large – Chef’s chilli prawns – with linguine, garlic, olive oil, spicy chili and, parmesan and rocket leaves.20160410_17312720160410_173135

The second main dish was a steak sandwich from the lunch menu.
