  • Museum was shut but the memorial garden was really nice. Loved the story board of what happened. Will definitely come back when the museum is open!
  • It's a nice place to go with a lot of money spent on it recently and there's picnic area's for families to enjoy.
  • Good for a stop on a drive through the area. Cheap entry, very interesting museum and amazing views. We were provided with a free pair of binoculars when visiting and could watch for whales and other animals. Recommend a visit if you're in the area.
  • Great work done by volunteers from Kinsale. Gardens have great history and Signal Tower needs time to take all the history in. I will be back.
  • Official start of the Wild Atlantic Way. Fantastic views. Fully restored tower and signal mast with memorial garden. Listing of all who sailed on the Lusitania.
