Join us on this 4-hour tour in Kinsale, where you will see more of the Charles Fort and the town itself. Your driver-guide picks you up in a private adapted vehicle at the cruise port of Cork. The picturesque drive to the port of Kinsale is approximately one hour.
Something you definitely want to see while visiting Kinsale is the Charles Fort. The fort was initially built to protect Kinsale and its port. Your tour guide will tell you about its rich history, including exquisite details, through fascinating stories.
Even though it is definitely worth a visit, you should also consider that the site is not 100% accessible. Wheelchair accessibility is restricted because of the uneven ground. Therefore, the fort is only visitable from the outside, but that does not mean that it is less enjoyable. Everything necessary can be seen and explained from the outside. Fortunately, there are ramps installed to make it a little bit easier.
Of course, we can not forget the town where all the history began, Kinsale. The town is known as one of the most picturesque towns in Ireland. You can recognize the village by its colorful streetscapes and marvel at the ancient buildings.
You will have the option to walk/stroll around while exploring the town to its fullest. It has many antique stores, bars, and restaurants. The city is sometimes referred to as ‘the Gourmet Capital of Ireland’.
One restaurant you definitely have to stop by is ‘Fishy Fishy*.’ It is an award-winning restaurant and fully accessible to wheelchair travelers. *Note that reservations are required and the restaurant does not open until 13:00. Ireland is known for its famous fish and chips, a must-do before taking you back to Cork. So depending on the date and time of your visit, an alternative will be suggested for those interested in trying out the fish and chips!
After a half-day of touring, your driver will take you back to the cruise port of Cork or your city center accommodation.
