Fish lovers can experience a fresh catch at the JS Fresh Fish pop-up restaurant in Shamrock Key.  On the 30th June, 1st, 14th and 15th July, you can choose from their impressive fish counter, take it to the resident chef and watch it being cooked to your taste. Open to adults and children, 12pm-3pm, booking recommended.
