A Father's Day to remember at Inchydoney

It may have escaped your notice but it's Father's Day this Sunday 17th June.  If you're feeling very generous this year, here's a fabulous idea for a gift.... Inchydoney Island Lodge & Spa in Co. Cork has taken a new approach this year and is offering a Father’s Day "Fish For Your Dinner!" package.

The hotel overlooks two beautiful beaches and the Atlantic Ocean, where guests can join a boat for a fishing trip to try their hand at catching mackerel, pollock or cod. That evening Chef Adam Medcalf of the Gulfstream Restaurant will cook up a superb meal with the line caught fish that your Dad has caught all by his very own self! The ‘Fish For Your Dinner’ package includes two night’s accommodation in a deluxe room with ocean view balcony, Chef’s West Cork breakfast each morning, a half day fishing trip from Courtmacsharry and your locally caught fish for dinner in the Gulfstream Restaurant or BBQ from €239 per person sharing.  

If a Mackerel makes its way onto your Dad's hook it will be grilled with a lemon and parsley butter, confit rooster potato, crisp pancetta and a smoked garlic aioli. Cod will be filleted and served with a sweet potato dauphinoise, sea asparagus and a smoked salmon beurre blanc. Pollock with be paired with a wholegrain mustard potato puree, spring cabbage and a tarragon vermouth sauce. 

Go on, you know he's worth it...

  1. Sounds like a grand idea to consider for this year's 2013 Father's Day weekend. My dad loves to fish as much as serving them fillet style.

  2. Then he'd love West Cork - perfect fishing there!
