Kinsale is a historic port and fishing town in County Cork, Ireland. It is a coastal recreational centre 26km south of Cork City, “the real capital” of Ireland. Kinsale lies near the mouth of the River Bandon, and the rocky promontory Old Head of Kinsale with its lighthouse and new golf links. The town’s population swells during summer when tourists and boating enthusiasts arrive. Leisure activities include yachting, sea angling, and golf. Kinsale is known for its restaurants and holds an annual "Gourmet Festival". The district is bathed in nine centuries of Irish history.

In town you’ll see: a number of historical churches; the Market House of 1600; Desmond Castle (and Wine Museum) customs house and prison built about 1500; a statue in the harbour that commemorates the sinking of RMS Lusitania in 1915; Kinsale Courthouse and Regional Museum; and a 17th C Almshouse that accommodated destitute people. There’s a Garden of Remembrance / 9-11 Memorial Garden remembering fire fighters many being Irish. Four kilometres NW of Kinsale was fought the Battle of Kinsale in 1601, between Irish and English troops.

Charles Fort, a restored star-shaped fort (used 1682 to 1922), guards the entrance to Kinsale harbour. This is a must-see site. James's Fort, which dates from the reign of James I, is located on the other side of the cove, on the Castlepark peninsula. It offers stunning views of the harbour and town. An underwater chain used to be strung between the two forts across the harbour mouth during times of war to scuttle enemy shipping by ripping the bottoms out of incoming vessels. Both forts are a short walk from town.
