Last Tuesday I had to take a trip “over seas” to Bere Island. The Sunday Times wanted a picture of John Walsh for an article on Remote working. The weather wasn’t in our favour but it doesn’t really matter in Bere Island it’s still beautiful no matter what the weather. Calm waters, friendly locals & great food.
A huge thanks to John Walsh, who met me off the ferry, for his patience. John has a huge knowledge of the history of the Island and was very interesting while we toured the Island while hoping for the fog to lift a little and we were rewarded on the East End!! Having finished the assignment a bit of lunch with my brother Patrick in Bere Island Bake House (or in their outdoor dining area warm snug with a lovely view looking out to the sea, as restrictions still don’t allow indoor) The food is fab and my crab sandwich delicious. I had a catch up with Edel Murphy who is the chef/owner and top marks to her staff, friendly & efficient! I had a nice chat with a few locals while I sat outside. A lovely day out despite the weather. The journey home on Murphy’s Ferry was passed with a chat with Brendan & his son Ultan.. You could see the ESB crews working at the new Wild Atlantic Glamping, connecting then to the network. Thanks again to John Walsh, Murphy’s Ferry for looking after me! The place is beautiful & I would highly recommend a visit for the amusing views, the local hospitality and if not for that even to enjoy the delicious food!!!
