Kinsale

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.
Explore Kinsale's surroundings by going to Clonakilty (Michael Collins Centre, West Cork Model Railway Village, &more). There's still lots to do: contemplate the long history of Charles Fort, tee off at Old Head Golf Links, look for gifts at Granny's Bottom Drawer, and get a new perspective on things with Boat Tours & Water Sports.
