Saturday Morning Walk in Kinsale

Saturday Morning Walk in Kinsale

Hi,

I'm in Kinsale with my girlfriend Friday night and Saturday morning/afternoon.

Would like to take in the Old Head walk, Charles Fort and then lunch in the Bulman. What is our best starting point/route for this?

The Old Head and Charles Fort are two different areas and can't be done in one walk. If you're staying in the town you can take the Scilly walk to Charles Fort and the Bulman. It's a nice easy harbour side walk on a pedestrian path for the most part. You'd need a car to drive out to the old head but it's worth it and you can have a nice stroll on Garretstown beach and take in the famous moving statue at Ballinspittle.

Still off limits, well was last year anyway. One has to park at the gates and walk the coast from there but not out onto the old head itself.

Suggest you take the town walk from the Tourist Office at 10.30 a.m. ( an hour ) followed by a coffee and then the Scilly Walk to Charles Fort ( 40 mins each way, calling to the Bulman en route.

Afternoon drive to the Old Head Signal Tower and take a choice of walks.

There's also a lovely walk along the coast. It begins just beyond Charlesfort (there's a lay by where you can park) and you can walk all along to Lower Cove. It goes through the boatyard and beyond. Lovely to walk along and watch the boats sailing out the Barbour. Perfect to build up your appetite at the Bulman!
