Nearest car hire would be located at the Cork Airport, which is 21 Kilometers ( 12 1/2 miles) from Kinsale, by car.

There are buses from Cork, but no trains.

FYI -- Personally, I would not spend a week in Kinsale without a car.

There isn't much choice in buses from Kinsale.

Bus Eireann have an hourly service to Cork that goes via Cork Airport and a few villages that are unlikely to interest you.

Locallink have a 5x daily service to Clonakilty, which goes via Ballinspittle, Garrettstown, Timoleague and on some services Courtmacsherry. Garrettstown is a decent, but unspectacular beach. Timoleague has the abbey, which is worth seeing, while Courtmachserry is a pleasant seaside town with a good walk along the coast from the town.

Locallink also have a 4x daily service to Charles Fort, but I would recommend walking this if you are able as it's a pleasant walk 40 minute walk along the harbour (look for signs for Scilly Walk when you reach the Spaniard pub instead of walking on the main road).

For pretty much anywhere else you'll need to change in Cork

Appreciate all the bus info. We’ll look at staying in Cork and possibly renting a car for short excursions to a couple of the sites you suggested
