Kinsale in County Cork is one of the most picturesque, popular and fashionable resorts of the south-west coast of Ireland. Famous for its beautiful yachting, sea angling, gourmet restaurants and golf. For those of you who would like to improve your English, there is the excellent Kinsale School of English and Art galleries

Kinsale can easily claim its place amongst Ireland's most historic locations for this has been a centre of population, commerce, trade and fishing far beyond memory and record. In its earliest days the estuary of the Bandon River gave it great importance as the river is tidal as far as Innishannon and water transport was dominant until the 18th Century.

The estuary also provided excellent anchorage for ancient shipping which went in peril of the vagaries of the weather.

The Town nestles between the hills and the shoreline, a maze of narrow streets, never far from the water and little changed in many hundreds of years. Amongst buildings of later periods are those of another age with historical links to the French, Spanish, British and Americans.

How do, Just stumbled accross your site and we are finding it extremely useful on our travels. We have come over to Europ from the good old US of A, travelling round Europe.
Great idea for visitors, pity you only feature coastal towns though.
Just a thought
Thanks J&L

I would like to ask if there are any records of a Edward Hurley Harbour Pilot
approx. 1830-1850 ?. He had a son Randal DOB 1835 who went into the
Royal Navy. If you could point me in the right direction many thanks.
