    Approaching Summercove from Charles Fort
    1 more image

    Leaving Charles Fort via the drawbridge, pause to look at the three plaques in Irish, English and Spanish unveiled in 2001, to commemorate the 400th anniversary of the Battle of Kinsale. This spot high on the hill is obviously a great place for first impression photos of Kinsale, lying tantalisingly off in the distance. Going down the steep hill you immediately come to the little village of Summercove, with it's small harbour and views across the estuary to James Fort. The Bulman Bar and restaurant is here ( see restaurant tips) and the houses are all amazing. Many are clad in the characteristic grey slate of Kinsale houses and many are quaint and cottagey. All of them cost obscene amounts of money so if you decide you want to come nd live here you need to have a very healthy bank balance.
