The Silver Fox, Kilmore Quay, Wexford

Kilemore Quay is a picturesque heritage fishing village on the south east coast of Ireland about 22km from Wexford Town and has been an RNLI lifeboat station since 1847.  With it’s thatched cottages, harbour and views out to the the Saltee Islands bird sanctuary and St Georges Channel it makes an ideal spot to stop off and explore a little of the local history, and have a bite of lunch of course.

We picked on the Silver Fox restaurant, from about half a dozen possibles, as the ideal spot and it turned out to be a good choice, although Josephine reported that the tea was an awful grey colour and tasted the same; but then if you will order tea when there is wine and cider available I have little sympathy!

Crab Claws & Prawns

Josephine only wanted a scone but I could not resist the Crabs claws and tiger prawns in garlic butter with a side salad.  They managed to serve the claws so that you do not spend a great deal of time and effort attempting to dig the flesh out so it was a double treat!

We finished our visit with a visit to two “craft” shops along the front. Although they had one or two nice pieces most of  their offerings were definitely geared to the lower end of the tourist market. If that is what sells who can blame them.

Altogether a very pleasant trip out.
