What’s on in Kinsale this Weekend!

As Father’s Day approaches this Sunday 19th June 2016, there are plenty of gift ideas available in Kinsale from our lovely boutiques and galleries as well as vouchers for restaurants, cafes and activities.

Would he like a beautiful framed Giles Norman black and white photograph or a Luckies Scratch Map from Hamish Hawkin on Main Street? Or how’s about exploring Kinsale Harbour via the Harbour Cruise, a fast paced RIB ride or boat hire? (and bring the family too!)

Or maybe a voucher for a one day BBQ cookery course with Kinsale Gourmet Academy?


Many hotels, restaurants and cafes are offering delicious Father’s Day Sunday lunch options …. or perhaps have fish ‘n’ chips from Dino ‘s or Mario’s and walk along the Pier road, taking in the scenery.
