Discover the History of Ireland: Kinsale to Kenmare Day Tour

Discover the History of Ireland: Kinsale to Kenmare Day Tour

After a brief morning walk around the narrow colorful streets of Kinsale, drive through West Cork and the picturesque towns of Clonakilty with many links to Michael Collins – a leading figure in the Irish struggle for independence in the early 20th century, known as a revolutionary, soldier and politician, he was assassinated by anti-Treaty forces on the 22nd of August 1922. Make a stop at Skibbereen Heritage Centre and The Famine museum and learn about one of the most trying times in Irish history - during 1845 and 1849, more than one million people died from hunger and over a million more emigrated from Ireland, reducing the local population significantly. Drive on through Bantry Bay and over The Caha Pass and into Kenmare or “Neidin” in Gaelic meaning “little nest”. Founded in 1670, Kenmare is situated on The Ring of Kerry and just north of Killarney National Park.
