Located at the estuary of the Brandon River, the historical fishing town of Kinsale nestles against hills that act as a natural shield against the open sea.
Let the collections at West Cork Model Railway Village and Desmond Castle & International Museum of Wine capture your imagination. Visiting Gougane Barra National Forest Park and Old Head Golf Links will get you outdoors. Step out of Kinsale to go to Skibbereen and see Skibbereen Heritage Centre, which is approximately 1h 20 min away. There's much more to do: steep yourself in history at Charles Fort, take an in-depth tour of Kinsale Regional Museum, learn about all things military at Irish Veterans Museum, and shop like a local with The Gallery Kinsale.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airports are Cork Airport and Shannon Airport. In September, plan for daily highs up to 61°F, and evening lows to 50°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 5th (Thu) so you can travel back home.
