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. Two forts once protected the town's harbor against enemy invasion, and today they count among the country's best-preserved examples of coastal military defenses. Beyond the harbor area, Kinsale features a network of narrow streets flanked by small shops, fine restaurants, and cozy pubs known for their warm atmosphere and live-music nights. To get the feel of the place, take a stroll through the winding alleyways of the compact city center. Kinsale is in County Cork. With our online itinerary creator, Ireland vacations can be built around trips to Kinsale and other destinations in Ireland.
