Kinsale General Information

A rare, venerable slice of fairy tale Emerald Isle charm, Kinsale is a gem of a town in County Cork, Ireland. The diminutive hamlet of less than 3,000 people parlays telltale picture-postcard scenery into a brisk and vibrant tourist trade. Indeed, come high season, otherwise sleepy Kinsale transforms into a dizzy dynamo and bustles with far more visitors than locals. Copious inns, hotels, shops, bars, pubs and restaurants provide throwback comfort and hospitality and numerous festivals and events entertain flocks of curious outsiders.

The fundamental basis of Kinsale’s inimitable allure is a colourful, tidy old townscape, full of furtive little nooks that almost feel torn from the pages of Swift and Joyce. Throw in a sumptuous culinary scene and handsome Celtic seascape and indeed, Kinsale encapsulates the face of Ireland starry-eyed international arrivals dream of. To boot, the town is a mere 30 km from the city of Cork and 20 km from Cork International Airport. Incredibly accessible then, amiable and affable, Kinsale is a superb county destination to explore. Solid points of interest to consider include the Kinsale Regional Museum, James Fort, Charles Fort, Church of Ireland Church and Tower House. Be sure to time your visit with events like the Kinsale Fringe Jazz Festival and Kinsale Gourmet Festival. Last but not least, a cruise on Kinsale Harbour is a must.
