Kinsale Harbour
The Green Guide

Useful information


The 2.4km walk along the east bank of the Brandon Estuary up to Summercove is very pleasant. The only street in the village plunges towards a tiny port where English ships used to unload guns and provisions for their army during the siege of Kinsale (1601-02). The star-shaped construction of Charles Fort was begun in 1670. It was used as a fort until 1922.
