Originally a medieval fishing port, historic Kinsale (from the Irish, Ceann tSaile – ‘Head of the Sea’) is one of the most picturesque, popular and historic towns on the south west coast of Ireland.
Visitors to Kinsale are captivated by its beautiful setting; its long waterfront, yacht-filled harbour, narrow winding streets and brightly painted galleries, shops and houses. The impressive fortifications of Charles Fort and James Fort guard the narrow entrance from the sea – giving clues to its rich history. Not only does Kinsale claim to be one of the most picturesque and oldest towns in Ireland, it is also internationally renowned for the number and quality of its restaurants. It has been hailed as ‘The Gourmet Capital of Ireland’, with no shortage of cafés, pubs and restaurants to suit every taste and budget. However active or relaxed you wish to be on your holiday or mini-break, Kinsale not only offers you a world of choice but allows you to take things at your own pace.
All that and easy to get to! Kinsale is 30 minutes south of Cork City and 20 minutes from Cork International Airport. The ideal base to explore the south-west and discover the drama of the Wild Atlantic Way!
