The Strawberry Field

All the best places to eat, shop and stay in Ireland. A local guide to local places.

You will find Margaret and Peter's Strawberry Field by turning off down the Sneem Road, at the Avoca store at Moll's Gap. It’s an unusual and rather sweet little cottage that also offers a charming gift shop selling a range of oil paintings, crafts, metal-ware and strawberry-related accoutrements. Margaret and Peter also make exceptionally good crepes, and when you pull up to this traditional cottage, when touring the peninsula, and order up a flour crepe with some ice cream and a cup of tea, you realise just what an appropriate snack this is for the hungry traveller, not to mention the hungry traveller's children. The secret to their pancakes is simple: they are prepared from scratch, readied only when ordered, and then the kitchen skillfully adds little touches, like a smidgeon of honey and thyme to the goat's cheese and walnut crepe, or grated apple with the gorgonzola crepe, or crème fraiche with orange marmalade. Each ingredient is well understood and expertly used and, once tried, you'd walk right up those Kerry mountains to try them again.
