Key Tourist Sights:

Charles Fort is a star-shaped fort which was built in the 17th century. It was designed by William Robinson, and is located about 3 km from Kinsale. It is one of the biggest military forts in Ireland, and has been involved in some of the major military events in Ireland's history, notably the Williamite War in 1690.

Desmond Castle, also known as the French Prison, was built in 1500. It has been occupied by the Spanish and was used as a prison for American sailors during the years of the American War of Independence. It got its name of the French Prison after a fire broke out in 1747 and 54 prisoners, most of whom were French, perished.

The Court House is another interesting building which you will find in Kinsale, and it now houses Kinsale Regional Museum. Visit here to find out more about the history of the town and region.

Kinsale harbour is well worth a look with plenty of large yachts to admire, and it makes for a pleasant place to walk around, especially at sunset.

Best Known For:

Kinsale is often referred to as the 'Gourmet Capital of Ireland', and its huge variety of restaurants is testament to this. One of the major events of the year is the Gourmet Festival which takes place in October. It features a number of events, including a 'cook off' in the street, a ball and plenty of festivities, making it a great event to attend.

Kinsale was also the site of a famous battle back in 1601 where the English took on the combined force of the Irish and Spanish, with the English coming out victorious.

During World War I, a German U-boat sunk the RMS Lusitania, and some of the survivors were taken to Kinsale, with the inquest into their deaths taking place at the courthouse in the town. There is now a statue in the harbour in memory of the event.
