Chairmans Lane., Kinsale
Probably the most colourful of Kinsale's pretty streets, Chairmans Lane runs down towards the harbour directly opposite Desmond Castle. Anecdotes abound about the 'whys' and 'wherefores' of the name of the lane, so please have a read of the blog by Celly O'Brien, owner of the "Giants Cottage", below.
Chairmans Lane runs downhill from Desmond Castle to Newmann's Mall, bringing you righ tback to the centre of town again. This lane is famous for its pretty cottages, like the Giants Cottage, painted all in purple, or the humourously named MansionHouse, the smallest house in Kinsale.
