About Kinsale

Kinsale town located in its picturesque harbour setting is rich in history, magnificent scenery and numerous activities to enjoy for all ages. Kinsale town is steeped in history from its Spanish occupation in 1601 to the link to the “Wild Geese”, the names given to the many thousands who emigrated from Ireland in the 17th, 18th and 19th century and whose legacy to home through their involvement in the International Wine Trade is commemorated in Desmond Castle in Kinsale centre.

Kinsale is situated in the estuary of the river Bandon, nestling among hills that hide it from the open sea. Because of its situation it is a historic port and is still very popular with pleasure sailors and anglers. Two forts guard the approach from the sea.

In addition to its visual charms, the town has become a home of good food, and is known as the gourmet Capital of Ireland. It’s also about traditional bars, beautiful buildings, narrow streets, shops and galleries and lots of activities on land and sea.

We recommend  www.kinsale.ie as the first port of call as it lists Failte Ireland approved hotels, B&B’s and self catering accommodation

 

The Macdonald Kinsale Hotel (formerly Carlton) has lodges that sleep 6 and access to pool and spa. 10 min drive though.
