Booking.com asked travelers...What effect did the scenery in Kinsale have on you?
While the weather on the day was quite stormy, the magic of the scenery from Kinsale, to Cobh, to Cork, to Clonakilty never faded. I recommend the short ferry crossing on the Cobh road. Quite novel, and shortens the trip from Cobh to Kinsale considerably.See all 3 answers
