A medieval town with a maritime heart, Kinsale’s energy comes from its beauty, its people and its large, safe harbour. Sheltered by steep green hills, and guarded by an impressive 17th-century fortress, the River Bandon meets the sea in this picturesque spot where sailing and fishing have shaped the community.
Narrow, winding streets fizz with historic pride, lined with colourful shop fronts and heritage buildings, galleries and gift shops, lively pubs and exceptional restaurants. At the heart of it all since 1946, Actons Hotel overlooks the handsome natural harbour busy with fishing boats, dinghies and yachts.
