Books

Kinsale is both a beautiful and interesting harbour town on the south coast of Ireland. It has a long and eventful history and, as a result, there are several books written about important events such as the Battle of Kinsale (1601) or the sinking of the Lusitania (1915).

However there are also some fiction and non-fiction books that are popular with visitors and locals alike. Here is a selection of some of the more recent publications, available at Kinsale Bookshop and other bookshops nationwide. Please contact the publisher for more information. Happy reading!
