The Kinsale Gourmet Festival held every October is by now world-famous. All the best restaurants and chefs showcase their talents.As Kinsale is twinned with Antibes in France and Newport in Rhode Island, there is a very strong gallic and American flavour added to the pot. As well as twinning towns Chefs are also exchanged and all kinds of crazy spin off activities like Mad Hatters Tastings are organised.
Although most restaurants in Kinsale are of a fairly high standard, there are some which at this stage have achieved Iconic status. Of course iconic status means sky-high prices but if youare a devout foodie then you might consider it well worth the money.
