Welcome board at The Pink Elephant

Lovely restaurant right on the coast & the Wild Atlantic Way, close to Kinsale.

Superb cuisine, specialising in West Cork local meats and seafood.  Magical Atlantic views

over Courtmacsherry Bay.  Patio for outside dining, extensive lawns and private parking.

A warm welcome, delicious dining and superb scenery awaits at The Pink Elephant.

Covid restrictions mean that we are closed from 3pm on Christmas Eve.

We will reopen when allowed and practical – hopefully in early 2021.

Any updates will be posted here, on Facebook and on Google.

Sorry not to be here.  Stay safe, and we look forward to returning for you.

We have the luxury of space, as well as a large outside area.  This makes it easier for us to operate social distancing, as well as other recommended measures to ensure the safety of customers and staff.  Our capacity is reduced, so please bear with us when availability is limited.  We are open for meals, but not standalone drinks.  Government guidelines are for customers to make advance reservations, wear facemasks, and stays are limited to 1h 45m.

The Story of

The Pink

The Pink Elephant has been a restaurant since 1960.

The building itself is very much older, being one of the oldest houses around.

It is set on a spectacular site overlooking Courtmacsherry Bay just at the point where the Kilbrittain and Argideen estuaries merge to enter the Atlantic Ocean.
