A hidden gem, a little tricky to get there as you go around the back of houses and up a path. Great views of the Old Head, entrance to Kinsale Harbour and surrounding area. The views give you are real feel as to why Kinsale was so important.

I love coming to Kinsale and I always bring my friends here to explore..James fort is a hidden ruin of Kinsale. I really recommend exploring it...Its not as big as Charles Fort but its well worth a visit and you get good views of Kinsale from here.

The size of this fort was incredible. This site is worth a few hours just to walk around the fort and see a few small exhibits. Since it overlooks the harbor and sea, it is a lovely site.

This castle was hidden up a hill behind the harbour. For older people it would be quite a walk. It was like many castles in Ireland that are in ruins. If you are filling in time it is worth looking at. Beautiful view of Kinsale Harbor.
