Update Summer 2019
Written by Don Thomson 3 | 25th Jul 2019
These notes were reviewed in July 2019. We have drawn attention to the lack of transport between Castlepark Marina and the centre of Kinsale.
Kinsale YC recommended

Little to recommend at Castle Park which only has two rather scruffy showers which require coin payment and are accessed by a path littered with dog excrement as the harbour master allows his dog to run free and makes no attempt to pick up after it. No food at the adjacent pub so you have a 45 minute walk (each way) for any further facilities.
Kinsale YC is very friendly and I cannot understand anyone choosing to moor elsewhere unless there is s regatta (as there was on our first visit).
Both marinas cost us €38 a night.
Kinsale can be reached from Cork Airport by an hourly bus service.

Lovely beach is just 3 minutes away from the marina so excellent for kids! Lovely harbourmaster is very helping and if you get fuel you will get a better rate for a berth! Electricity - you need an adapter for that- first time we encountered this in Ireland. Lovely place!
UPDATE APRIL 2017

I reviewed these notes in April 2017. Not much has changed here, the Marinas working on the Kinsale Harbour dues. Castle Park will be providing food and entertainment at the weekends.
