Nice trip around the harbour with helpful advice about the history of Kinsale . Complimentary hot drinks provided and a comfortable seating area both inside the boat and on top. Worth a trip if you have an hour to spare

The Kinsale harbour cruise aboard the 'Spirit of Kinsale" is a lovely way to spend an hour. The commentary provided by the skipper is informative and helps out of towners understand not just the history of the town but also defines the local landmarks. The...More

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.
