The heatwave has officially landed.
With temperatures due to rocket to 27C across Cork this week, we can all agree it’s perfectly acceptable to devour an ice cream for lunch.
And probably breakfast too, TBH.
Whether you prefer a gelato or a good old 99 with a Cadbury’s Flake, the main thing is that you get that frozen sugary goodness into your face as quickly as possible.
Summer doesn’t last forever, you know.
Here are six places to get your fix:
1. Garryvoe Stores
There’s no improving on the classic 99 but this tiny seaside shop is widely recognised as the best place to find the perfect one.
If you’ve never devoured a Coqshake, a thick blend of ice cream, cookies and chocolate, you genuinely haven’t lived.
3. Sundays Ice Cream and Coffee Bar, Kinsale
Taking a spin to the seaside? Don’t leave without a cone stop at Sundays…
If you like your ice cream fancy, hit up Idaho for the Macadamia and Pecan Brittle soft serve…
Ace your Instagram game with a scoop of black vanilla and black cherry from Casanova Gelato on George’s Quay…
6. Gino’s Gelato
Why waste your time with hot coffee when you can get your fix in gelato form?
