Kinsale

Kinsale is a food lovers and yachting town - a great base from which to explore the Irish Riviera, secure in the knowledge that you will come back to a diverse selection of restaurants and a vibrant nightlife. Kinsale is also home to a large and active creative community and there are number of art galleries, very good record and book shops and several excellent delicatessens.

Kinsale has a clearly defined past which can be traced from the 12th century, being at the mouth of the Bandon river and with a natural harbour - the town played a key part in Irish history.

An active person can assimilate all that the town has to offer in a long afternoon, but if you’re not on a mission linger awhile.

The beach in town is best avoided as it harbours a good deal of seaweed and their sandfly occupants. However there are a number of beautiful coves to be found just a few miles out of town, these locations are a carefully guarded secret by the locals - so you need to engage in small talk to get the inside information!

The walking routes are easily accessible and great efforts have been made to ensure that the visitor is both informed and entertained – whilst Kinsale is child friendly there are no funfair type attractions.

The tourist information office located in the centre of town has a series of comprehensive and attractively designed brochures suggesting gentle strolls around the various attractions, which include Desmond Castle, St. Multose Church, the Court House - now home to the Regional Museum, Southwell Almshouses, James Fort and Charles Fort

Kinsale is a regular haunt of the Cork glitterati which explains the vast choice of quality restaurants and the yacht club plays host to a number of events including the bi-annual Sovereign’s Cup attracting yachtsmen from every continent.

Visitors can enjoy boat and fishing trips, cycling, walking and of course golf. Night life ranges from open air opera to carnival processions via traditional music in bar rooms. Cork city is but a short drive and Kinsale is a wonderful base for visiting the delights of West Cork.
