It’s one of the best seaside hideaways in Cork.
And Ballycotton’s award-winning Cush is pulling out all the stops to entice new guests to plan a little jaunt to East Cork this festive season.
The restaurant, maritime pub, and guest house, named after an old pathway that stretched along the famous cliffs in Ballycotton, received a Michelin Guide Bib Gourmand for the first time in February 2022.
With head chef Dan Geurin at the helm, they’ve just launched three mouthwatering new seasonal menus.
Using locally sourced and seasonal ingredients, including fish caught locally in Ballycotton, Geurin has come up with an array of mouth-watering courses from traditional Irish dishes to more adventurous additions such as grilled fillet of wild John Dory, roast boned and rolled quail, Royal Belgian caviar, and roast Wicklow sikka deer.
For dessert, there’s a velvet cloud yoghurt pannacotta, apple crumble soufflé, chocolate and hazelnut praline mousse, and a selection of artisan cheeses with quince jelly and homemade crackers.
Diners can choose from a tasting menu with the option of wine pairing, an á la carte menu, and a set menu, all of which can be enjoyed in either the restaurant or bar.
“There’s great value to be had on our set menu, and the seasonal pairing menu offers delicious food as well as wines that perfectly complement the dishes.” said front of house manager at Cush, Doireann Flynn.

“There’s a huge choice on our new á la carte menu, and the feedback we’re getting from customers is that Cush is going from strength to strength. Ballycotton is a really great place for hospitality and we hope people make the most of what’s on offer here.”
