Kinsale

— 2 nights
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.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Kinsale: Skibbereen (Drombeg Stone Circle & Skibbereen Heritage Centre) and Inchydoney Beach (in Clonakilty). The adventure continues: contemplate the long history of Charles Fort, play a few rounds at Old Head Golf Links, admire the natural beauty at Ringfinnan Garden of Remembrance, and look for gifts at Stone Mad Gallery.
