Kinsale Co. Cork

Kinsale is a famous fishing town, that is deep-rooted with history. Only a short 25 minute drive from Cork City. Historically it was a major port, a battleground and the site of the sinking of the great Lusitania.

Today it is the southerly starting point of the Wild Atlantic Way. From Charles Fort on the Kinsale Harbour to the Kinsale Museum on the original inquest site of the sinking of the Lusitania, there is so much to do in this elegant maritime town.
