No wonder so many Hollywood actors, famous writers, artists, filmmakers and craftspeople make Kinsale their home.
One. Kinsale is just 30 minutes from Cork City, and 20 minutes from Cork International Airport, with direct flights from Heathrow, Gatwick, Liverpool, Manchester, Liverpool, Edinburgh, Glasgow, and more. There are also sea routes to Rosslare.
Two. Stay for a night or two, soak up the festival atmosphere, and then maybe head on west…
Three. Head further west to follow the rugged coastal shores of Ireland, with their wild and wonderful scenery, and centres for horse riding, sailing and walking. Visit Ilnacullin (Garnish Island), the Sheep’s Head Peninsula and the artists’ colony at Allihies, and discover the Ring of Kerry and the Killarney National Park.
Or maybe you’ll find you love Kinsale so much, you never want to leave. You definitely wouldn’t be the first – if this town had a penny for every story beginning, “I came to Kinsale for lunch – twenty years ago…”
