The bar at Hayfield Manor hotel in the university district of Cork city, is as cosy a spot as you'd ever hope to find. Despite it's five star status, there are no airs of pretension or snootiness in the ambience of this hotel and its facilities. From the moment you walk into the generous lobby with its sweeping staircase, you’ll feel very welcome indeed. Owners Joe and Margaret Scally, who also own the Killarney Royal, have made sure of that.Hayfield’s Balcony Bar is the place to sip a lunchtime pint or pre or post dinner drink. Very snug - it echoes the traditions of a real Irish pub, within the bounds of a top class hotel. A full bar service is here - plus wine if you so wish. There’s music too, sometimes provided by a mobile piano which is wheeled in as and when. That just echoes the real homely Irish charm about this hotel. You won’t find many other establishments of this calibre that are so laid back when it comes to keeping people happy. Wheeling in a piano is something that would happen in a typical Irish house when the mood is for a party. You just don’t expect it in this environment, but appropriately to the luxurious style here - the piano in question is a baby grand!

Tom Durcan, craft butcher of over twenty five years experience, is a master of spiced beef. It has won him many honours. This fine Cork speciality is the underlining product at his butcher’s stall in the English market. Tom’s career began as a youngster, when he took a summer job in a butcher’s shop during school holidays. The experience proved invaluable. Working with an experienced butcher with his own slaughter house provided what Tom describes as a ‘fantastic education’ for the young novice in how to source animals, and the ground rules for good butchery.
West Cork has long been a trailblazing region for new artisan food production. Toons Bridge Dairy takes it's name from the nearby bridge over the River Toon, in a small and picturesque hamlet in the Macroom countryside in West Cork.
