Plenty to do here in Kinsale. The yacht club is most excellent with showers, laundry and great food. The people here are really genuine. On our first days travel I met a gypsy who settled down to raise horses, an ex real estate salesmen who sold out and became a fisherman, and a young man who returned home to roast coffee beans in an old warehouse. Although Kinsale is a tourist town with plenty of bus loads of people it still has its characters.
A short walk out of town takes you stone throw from people s windows and through there gardens up stilly walk towards the fort. I enjoyed this walk emmensly as I was able to admire people’s building styles and garden idea.s.
Back in town I spent time at local library which has enough local books to get a gist of Ireland. I ventured up hill to the cork design building where I purchased a marbled blank book, wooden garden dibble and garden tools all made locally.
The grocery store, tucked in the back corner had everything one could want all crammed into a small space but bustling with fresh bread, sweats and local caught fish. The back streets have bookshops, used and new and plenty of coffee and tea shops. This is a great place to spend a week.
