Where to stay in Kinsale

If you visit the charming fishing village of Kinsale, opt for a place by the water rather than the center. It should be easy to find accommodations along the picturesque harbor, where a majority of the village's hotels are located. From here you will enjoy scenic views of the coast and easily be able to walk to the town's center. Budget travelers can find affordable guest homes away from the shoreline or outside of the town center. Visitors wanting more luxury will be able to find a few beautiful spa or upscale hotels.

  • Very scenic views and a great place for a picnic or walk. The fort is small but well worth a look.
  • Beautiful scenery with views of kinsale town, Scilly and the habour
  • Great place for an afternoon walk! Views are stunning
  • Great views but the fort itself is not accessible. The walk over is very nice. There is also a small beach nearby, perfect for a sunny day!
  • Historical, but in ruin's, no guides or entry
