Kinsale is one of the most picturesque, interesting and fashionable resorts on the south-west coast of Ireland. Famous for its beautiful harbour locations, it has a wide range of maritime activities, a myriad of gourmet restaurants and superb golf courses.
Kinsale can also claim its place amongst Ireland’s most historic locations with fascinating monuments, museums and historic sites to visit year round.
Kinsale town nestles between the hills and the shoreline, a maze of narrow streets, never far from the water and little changed in many hundreds of years.
Come and sample the warm hospitality at Kinsale Holiday Village and Kinsale’s award winning restaurants and pubs.
There are examples of medieval, 16th and 17th century architecture in the form of Saint Multose Church, Desmond Castle, and James and Charles Forts. Despite changes throughout the years many of the original features of the buildings are still intact as a result of a dedicated commitment to continually maintain and restore these sites.

Surfing has become very popular in the wide beaches of Garrettstown, a 10 minute drive from Kinsale. The surfers call this G’town, a wonderful way to pass away a day or indeed a week in the area. John and his team will help in any way with lessons, We have had great enthusiastic reports of fun filled days in G’town during the summer months. Families, based in Kinsale travel out for the morning or afternoon for the surfing and then return to their Kinsale base for their nights entertainment. One Mother of three teenagers last year told us she had the most wonderful week, she relaxed and went for her spa treatment or just simply went for a coffee in peace as the kids enjoyed their surfing every day, they arrived home tired and happy every night, a perfect family getaway.
