A visit to the 17th Century Charles Fort is a priority. Take the wonderfully Scenic “Scilly Walk” which passes through the little village of Summercove & leads you straight to the Fort. Both the 15th Century Desmond Castle & the International Wine Museum are located just 200 metres from the Gallery bed & breakfast & are an essential visit to understand Kinsale`s development as a successful trading town. Kinsale Museum which is 100 metres from the Gallery dates back to 1600 & houses an array of interesting artifacts including being the venue for the subsequent enquiry into the sinking of the Lusitania. The 17th Century James Fort which is outside Kinsale is well worth visiting & is a particularly attractive walking area & has spectacular views of both the inner & outer harbour.
There are 3 sandy beaches which are ideal for swimming, The Dock, Sandycove, & Garretstown (Blue Flag). Bicycle hire is available on Pearse St. – 100 metres away. The local Farmers Market ( which is 150 metres from the Gallery Guesthouse) is held on Tuesdays & boasts a wide selection of stalls with fresh produce. Enjoy a stroll along the pier & view the colourful array of fishing boats, sailing vessels & motor boats. The town park, also on the pier is ideal for a leisurely rest & is particularly attractive when the flower display is in bloom. For those who are interested in aquatics, there are a variety of leisure craft for charter, and Oysterhaven is an established centre for Windsurfing. Finally there are a great variety of Cafe`s many of which are outdoor, thereby creating a sophisticated atmosphere in Kinsale.
