Kinsale

(4.1/5 based on 4,200+ reviews for top 30 attractions)
Things to do: historic sites, golf, museums
Located at the estuary of the Brandon River, the historical fishing town of Kinsale nestles against hills that act as a natural shield against the open sea. Two forts once protected the town's harbor against enemy invasion, and today they count among the country's best-preserved examples of coastal military defenses. Beyond the harbor area, Kinsale features a network of narrow streets flanked by small shops, fine restaurants, and cozy pubs known for their warm atmosphere and live-music nights. To get the feel of the place, take a stroll through the winding alleyways of the compact city center.

Where to stay

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.
