What is your favorite thing to do in Kinsale

I will be on a RS tour. I am trying to figure out what I would like to do with my free time in Kinsale. Possibly an afternoon tea someplace. Would be interested in everyone's favorite things to do.

It’s been a couple of years since our RS Ireland tour. I remember Kinsale as being quite small. We took a bus with the group to Charles Fort and then some of us had a very nice walk back into town. We went into several pubs with music in the evening.

Walk out to Charles Fort on one side of the harbour, or walk out to the ruins of James fort on the other side of the harbour and have a picnic lunch.

I spent awhile at the 12th-century St. Multose Church, with some features dating earlier, surrounded by a nice-looking cemetery. On the west door you can see where Cromwell's soldiers sharpened their swords on the sandstone. It's a few blocks west of the harbor. I also enjoyed the harbor tour, including a water-level view up to Charles Fort.
