We really enjoyed the boat trip around the harbour, which as well as providing gorgeous views also provides some insight into the history of Kinsale. Very easily accessible in a central location and a nice way to spend an hour

November 26, 2017. Their web site says closed November through "first week in March." It's only a guess, but they might not pay much attention to the website until sailing resumel.
