Day five and bathed in sunshine we decided to splash out on something special. Being awash with working harbours and fishing villages we were spoilt for choice when it came to seafood restaurants where the catch moves daily from net to plate. In the end we opted for the Silver Fox, highly rated with a certificate of excellence from Trip Advisor and nestled near the harbour in Kilmore Quay in a converted cottage. Kilmore Quay is a fishing village with a population of 372, mostly housed in a collection of thatched cottages, even new builds, clustered round the marina and narrow main street. We rang them to make a booking and I asked them to put my name on a lobster swimming in their tank and the husband put his name on a 1lb black sole. By no means cheap, it cost around the same as a day at Wexford races (15 euros each entrance fee, plus three or four each way bets) it was extraordinarily good and somehow I suspect, despite our joint passion for horses, left us with a more satisfied, certainly sated feeling.
