Stay in Cobh or Kinsale?

My boyfriend and I are going to be driving around Ireland for 2 weeks in March/April and when we stay in Cork we would like to spend the night in Cohb OR Kinsale. We're just going to be in one of these places from about 2pm until the next morning then we are going to go to Kilarney in the morning.

Where do you think would be the better of the 2 places to stay?

Well, i much prefer Kinsale to Cobh although Cobh has it's interesting bits. Tell me what you expect to do in either place and I will tell you which is most suitable.

If you don't want to visit the Queenstown Story in Cobh, then choose Kinsale. There are more options there.

We're pretty much using it for an over night base but we want to stay in the nicer of the places with better pubs and restaurants and atmosphere.

I would choose Kinsale, given what you have said. It is much nicer than Cobh.

Kinsale gets my vote. It's such a cute town. And it's one of the more gastronomically-advanced places in Ireland. You can't help but find a good meal in Kinsale. Enjoy!
