Homes in a popular Irish town

County Cork’s famous fishing town of Kinsale has morphed over the years from a major port and historic battleground into one of the most popular tourist attractions in Ireland, a town of narrow winding streets, brightly painted galleries, shops, and houses, and fabulous eateries. The best way to experience this town is from a holiday home that immerses you in its historic centre, where you can step out of your door right into centuries of history. Look out also for the homes along the Bandon just south of the centre for fantastic riverside living.

Homes for all tastes

Kinsale delivers its fortuitous visitors both character homes with more than a hint of rustic, and ultra-modern supremely well-appointed flats, essentially spanning all tastes and requirements. There is even a mansion for rent that holds up to 24 people! Relax in well-kept gardens and enjoy a meal looking out over beautiful River Bandon!

The area and getting around

Explore Santiago’s diverse barrios

Kinsale is a small but perfectly formed town located in the far south of Ireland just 20 minutes’ drive from the major airport city of Cork. Many visitors choose to fly into Dublin, three hours’ drive to the north, and make Kinsley part of a tour of Ireland.

A quintessential Irish town

Kinsale is located on an inlet, and one of its main attraction is its intimate harbour full of sailboats, rocking in the wind.

With an impossible laid-back vibe, gently strolling the streets of Kinsale is a real treat!

Kinsale for walkers

Just outside Kinsale, the six-kilometre loop around the Old Head of Kinsale peninsula is one of Cork County’s most celebrated hiking paths. Old Head boasts the sensational scenery of a rugged and narrow headland surrounded by the tempestuous Irish sea, historic sites including Celtic ruins and a Victorian lighthouse, and even an 18-hole golf course! The peninsula is a gentle two hour walk, and what better way to work up an appetite before visiting one of the town’s spellbinding restaurants?!

Kinsale for foodies

Kinsale can claim to be the culinary capital of Cork County, and perhaps even Ireland. Seafood lovers are in for a treat, with renowned restaurants supplied by local fishermen, including Bastion, one of a small number of Michelin awarded restaurants in Ireland, with seafood dishes that will leave you spellbound. The annual Kinsale Gourmet Festival in October is an obligatory fixture on every Irish foodie’s calendar, where you will experience a full-frontal assault on your tastebuds of Kinsale's finest chefs.
