Take a break

The Irish Times Magazine - - INDEX -

The streets are rammed, the shops are too warm and the one present you need to buy is sold out. Oh, Christ­mas! To pro­vide shel­ter from the storm, Urchin Bar, the down­stairs sis­ter of Cliff Town­house, is of­fer­ing the Christ­mas Shop­ping Pit­stop. For ¤ 15 per per­son, you have your pick of plates, in­clud­ing some ham cro­quettes served with a piquillo sauce, and a choice be­tween a glass of wine, pint of beer or a fes­tive Mulled Wine or Hot Port ( noon- 5pm). But if you need some­thing heartier to calm your nerves the Christ­mas Shop­ping Full Stop (¤ 60pp, 5pm- 7pm) in­cludes a seafood plat­ter with all the trim­mings plus a glass of bub­bly. Take the break while you can. clifftown­house. ie/ urchin
