Cape Cod & the Irish Keltic Kitchen!


One trip to the Cape just isn't enough. So this summer, we went twice!


The beaches were gorgeous. Our first day was perfect warm weather. We got confused by the tides, which surrounded our sandbar and forced everyone up onto the main beach, but it was a fun adventure nonetheless!


I loved the wavy dents under our feet on the sandbar, made by the tides which were coming back soon!

Bathing suit: Victoria's Secret
Beachy necklace: Forever 21
Jean Shorts: Target


View from the main beach!



Caught eating my turkey sando from a nearby market! Gotta support the local Cape Cod businesses.


Here I was introduced to Landshark, a yummy beer that is basically the American equivalent of Corona.


For brunch, we were directed by Yelp to the Keltic Kitchen! The Keltic Kitchen is awesome because it's staff is actually Irish, and it boasts a genuine Irish menu.


I loved this amazing & relevant sand sculpture outside the restaurant!


Shirt & shorts: Target
Flip flops: Tommy Hilfiger 

It was a 45 minute wait (as the best brunch places often are), but with an Irish gift shop and plenty of sights to see on the premises, the time flew by. 


I ordered the Keltic Benny, which came complete with two poached eggs on corned beef hash, english muffin, hollandaise sauce and home fries. 

The corned beef hash was bursting with flavor, and had peppers and onions mixed in. You can't even see the muffin under all the corned beef, but trust me, it was there!

As you can see, the kitchen certainly doesn't skimp on ingredients. The portions were beyond generous, and so delicious!


The Pit Ham Benny, with two poached eggs on a 12oz ham steak, english muffin, hollandaise sauce and home fries.


Here you see a meal with another Irish staple: The 2x4 with Rashers. This plate comes with 2 eggs, 2 Irish sausage, 2 pancakes, and 2 rashers (Irish bacon). 

I would describe the rashers as more like ham than American bacon. While American bacon is tough and fried to a crisp, rashers are more soft and raw. I actually personally prefer their texture and flavor to bacon!

Comment Challenge: I've always wanted to visit Ireland! Name a place you've never been, but always wanted to go!

  8. I love the Cape! I went during spring, so it wasn't exactly beach weather but still it was so amazing! Love it and dying to go back. Re you comment challenge honestly I have pages upon pages of places I'd like to see. Lately I've been dreaming of Peru and trekking to Machu Picchu. That has been a dream of mine since I was little.

  30. I've always wanted to visit Ireland myself! I've got a long list of places I'd like to go one day, but talking about food inspired places I want to go to Portland, OR. I've heard a lot of the restaurants there and ever since it's been on my bucket list. I'd also like to travel to Poland too! :)
