    Pier Road - Harbour and Marina.

    by Ekaterinburg Written Jul 27, 2006

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The marina with its rows of glitzy yachts slapping against their moorings, is the image most associated with Kinsale. Perhaps this is the reason I mention it last because, as we have seen , there is so much more to Kinsale than a pretty harbour and red sails in the sunset. But as harbours go, they dont come much prettier then this and sitting anywhere along the quays is a delightful way to while away an hour or more.There are a few monuments to those lost at sea along the quayside and most notably, in honour of our Spanish comrades in arms, a viewing platform in the shape of a Spanish galleon.

  • Go Sailing on a Yacht!!

    by poweller Written May 3, 2010

    We went sailing with the guys in Sovereign Sailing down at the Trident Hotel Marina. I had never sailed before but they took 4 of us out on a new 34ft sailing yacht. It was Fantastic. They gave us all the sailing gear and safety jackets then as soon as we left the marina I was given the wheel. What an exeperience!! While the girls enjoyed the views the lads helped with pulling some ropes and we sailed out the mouth of the harbour and got some great views of the Old Head of Kinsale and the Sovereign Rocks. Couldn't think of a better way to enjoy Kinsale and the harbour. 5 Stars...

    The photo is a photo taken looking back on Kinsale having driven through it. Just thought I'd mention that there are a few miles (kilometers!) passed Kinsale that are nice to stroll around too while you are in the area. Theres a little beach called Summer Cove (eeks, hope i have the name correct here!?! ill confirm later!!) across the water from Kinsale, you can get here by driving out, over the bridge to the left, and take a left again. Theres a pub here where you can get food and of course drink, and you are practically on a little beach right here. There is Garretstown beach, Charles Fort, Old Head of Kinsale, Oysterhave etc, all within the region of Kinsale
