And we’re ALL about it!
Cobh locals were blessed with some good news this week with the announcement of a brand new food market.
Taking to TikTok to make the announcement, Cork man Rob describes his plans for the new market which he’s calling ‘The Boatyard’. Situated on the site of an old boat yard in Cobh directly next to the ferry, Rob has installed a total of five shipping containers which will be converted to restaurant outlets.
Over the past few weeks, Rob and his builders have been preparing the yard and, with the help of YouTube tutorials, Rob has self-taught himself how to convert shipping containers into restaurants.
The Boatyard will play host to a mix of different food outlets, with the likes of beloved rotisserie chicken vendor Hansum being the first confirmed business on-site. The space will also have a car-wash, a coffee shop, a burger joint, a fish & chips restaurant and an ice-cream, waffle and crepe parlour (yum!)
There will also be plenty of indoor and outdoor seating at The Boatyard with epic undisturbed views of the sea. You can check out the full video below, and be sure to give them a follow on Instagram for live updates and open dates.
