Kinsale is a popular tourist resort located in County Cork, Ireland. The landscape is interspersed with farmlands, river valleys and sandstone hills in the west. The long coastline is comprised of bays, rocky headlands and golden sands.
The county experiences a mild temperate climate influenced by the warm Gulf Stream and southern winds.
Perhaps the most important point in the history of this town is the Battle of Kinsale in 1601, following which the British occupied the town until 1922 and built Charles’ Fort and James Fort to protect the Kinsale harbour.
With a population of about 3,500 people, Kinsale is a prosperous town with a wide-range of business activities and employment opportunities. Agriculture, agro-tourism and forestry-related activities are the prime occupations in this region.
