Small property with a knowledgeable tour guide. It combined history of the area and property, and the history of wine making and distribution.

The staff was very kind in offering to provide a mini off-schedule lecture about the site. We had a really hard time understanding what he was saying, but appreciated him taking the time to give us background.

The museum itself was fine (not worth an extra trip or anything but a good way to spend an hour) but the gentleman working there was the absolute BEST! Taking our pictures, putting the kids in the jail cell for fun, adding loads to the information - he made the visit!

Many interesting aspects of this museum, but the part I enjoyed most was the section on the sinking of the Lusitania, which occured just outside of the Kinsale harbor. We had the Heritage pass, so no additonal cost.
