Come and get it!
Green grass, misty mountains, black Guinness, and a rainbow every day. The colours of Ireland are renowned worldwide. Before you can explore the countryside, you must first wake up and have a hearty breakfast.
My favorite treat every year that I go the to the Galway Oyster Festival, is the Irish Breakfast on a bun - 8am, after 2 hours of shucking with "me mates" - Oyster shuckers from around the world.
Breakfast sausage, blood sausage, bacon and egg all wrapped up on an easy to handle bun. Mmmm warms the cockles of my heart.
At the Ceili Cottage, we are going more home-style, by putting our breakfast on a plate. Kyle has made all of the sausages in house, pork breakfast sausage, blood sausage, bacon rasher, potato scone, beans, mushrooms, grilled tomato and topped off with a fried egg. This is the hearty breakfast that will set your day, and fill you till supper. Which is what I always do when in Ireland, the big breakfast, a wee pint 'round lunchtime with a few oysters, and a nice supper to finish out the day.
Today marks the first day of the Lunches at the Ceili Cottage. 12noon 'til we close, Saturday and Sunday. We'll see you soon.
