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.
Start off your visit on the 11th (Fri): look for gifts at Kinsale Crystal, get engrossed in the history at Kinsale Regional Museum, then take in the exciting artwork at Kinsale Pottery and Arts Centre, then learn about all things military at Irish Veterans Museum, and finally view the masterpieces at The Gallery Kinsale.

Start your trip to Kinsale by creating a personalized itinerary on Inspirock.

The country's smallest city in terms of population, Kilkenny boasts a rich cultural heritage and diverse tourist attractions that include well-preserved medieval architecture, exciting nightlife, a vibrant culinary scene, and abundant shopping opportunities.
On the 12th (Sat), take an in-depth tour of Edmund Rice Heritage Centre, explore the world behind art at Nore View Folk & Heritage Museum, get a taste of the local shopping with The Blackbird Gallery, then contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Capuchin Friary, and finally step into the grandiose world of Kilkenny Castle.

Plan my Kilkenny trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Drive from Kinsale to Kilkenny in 2.5 hours. Alternatively, you can take a bus. In January, daily temperatures in Kilkenny can reach 9°C, while at night they dip to 4°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 12th (Sat) to allow enough time to drive to Dublin.
