Foodie Finds: Avoca in Moll's Gap, Co. Kerry, Ireland

We'd driven for hours from Co Clare toward our cottage in Co Kerry. We didn't have any restaurant recommendations in Killarney, but had a great one for Moll's Gap, about a half-hour south-west of Killarney.

We were lucky enough to sit down and chat with Ariane Marder of, for a behind the scenes look att the site. Here's what she had to say...
