Local tour guide Barry Moloney led a wonderful walking tour of historic Kinsale
Headed out this morning on a brilliant walking tour of historic Kinsale by local Barry Moloney. Amusing, delightful, and highly informative.

Points of interest included the Lusitania graveyard in this quaint historic town.

After the tour, took a long walk around Compass Hill, with a breathtaking view of the harbor and James Fort and Charles Fort.

Walked back around the harbor to our place for refreshment before heading out tonight for dinner and some music

Great seafood for dinner at Jim Edwards — oven roasted salmon and pan seared hake — followed by a couple of stops at pubs for some traditional music sessions.
