The village of Kinsale

No trip to the South West of Ireland would be complete without a visit to the village of Kinsale. It’s a beautiful fishing village only 20 minutes from Old Head Golf Links, arguably Ireland’s most scenic golf course with Cork and the world famous Blarney Castle only 20 minutes in the other direction. It is however more commonly knows for its fantastic restaurants, with the village often being referred to as the gourmet capital of Ireland. With seafood as the unsurprising speciality, you’re spoiled for choice everywhere you look whether you’re after a Michelin Star meal or simply a great bowl of chowder for lunch.
