Kinsale town is very pretty and nice to stroll the shops but my favourite stop in Kinsale was to see the origin of one of my favourite beers, KPA - Kinsale Pale Ale. Unlike other hip microbreweries, Blacks shares a tiny space in a boat...More

A great find in Kinsale, friendly & very welcoming. Great beers & ipas, but their gin and spiced rum are so good too! A brewery with a difference, love the product diversity. Highly recommend a visit if in Kinsale.

You taste 5 beers and they're all tasty and different, we tasted a gin too and a rum. The KPA is very drinkable! Mary gave us lots of useful information and it was a very nice way to spend the afternoon.

H, I'm sorry no. The tour is in real live working brewery rather than a vistor center type experience. Safely is always at the front of our minds and children are not permitted for this reason.
