    Harbour Town

    by DEBBBEDB Written Jul 28, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: After we visited Charles Fort, we parked in town, walked all through the town and a local park, and ate lunch. While we were looking at the harbor during lunch we saw the head of an animal pop up. At first I thought it was an otter, but we realized eventually that it was a seal!
    After lunch we drove across the harbor to James Fort. After we visited that, we spent the rest of the afternoon watching our son play in the sand at the beach.

    Kinsale Town

    Favorite thing: Kinsale can easily claim its place amongst Ireland's most historic locations for this has been a centre of population, commerce, trade and fishing far beyond memory and record. In its earliest days the estuary of the Bandon River gave it great importance as the river is tidal as far as Innishannon and water transport was dominant until the 18th Century. The estuary also provided excellent anchorage for ancient shipping which went in peril of the vagaries of the weather.

    Favorite thing: Kinsale is one of Ireland's most picturesque coastal towns, hosting international sailing events, as well as being Ireland's gourmet capital, due to the quality of both local seafood and the international chefs the town attracts.
