chadd’s ford is located in the village of Ballybough in Co Cork, about 25 miles (40 km) south of Dublin.
The tavern is famous for its signature beef carons, which are prepared with butter, salt, mustard and a garlic mustard-soaked batter.
The carons are a staple of the Irish pub scene.
The restaurant is open from Monday to Friday from 9am to 9pm and Saturday and Sunday from 9.30am to 11pm.
The Carons’ main pub is open daily from 6pm to 11.30pm.
Ballycastle’s Carons pub is a little further north, and has a different approach.
The owner, Michael O’Connell, said he is keen to bring the Carons back to the area.
“It’s just something that we wanted to do because we’ve had so much interest in it over the years,” he said.
“The idea of having a place like that is great, because you can have a drink and watch a game or watch the Irish football team.”
The Carones are a family run business and their customers are loyal to the family.
Mr O’Connell said the pub has been a big hit with his customers and he hopes to keep it going.
“It’s been so popular in the past, it’s so popular and it’s not going anywhere,” he added.
“We’re hoping that people keep coming back and people come in to eat and we can stay open a little bit longer.”
Ballys Tavern is a pub in the nearby village of Banhain.
It’s a family-run business that opened in 1992 and is based on the old Bally Bally estate, in which the family of the late owner had once lived.
The BallyBally estate is a former village that is now home to a thriving restaurant business.
The bar is open on weekends and special occasions, with regular meals.
