Kinsale: Walking the Walk.

Kinsale: September 16th, 2011

There is a village on the edge of Kinsale called Scilly. A footpath runs through it. This, naturally, became known as the Scilly Walk, thus paving the way for countless Monty Python jokes.

(If, by chance, you’re unfamiliar with Monty Python, may I direct you to ?)

I left the car in the park outside Charles Fort, and walked the short distance down the road to Summer Cove, where the path begins. It’s a surfaced path, leading around the bay into Scilly, at a pub called the Spaniard, from where it’s only a short walk into Kinsale.

On the way, there’s some good views of the town and the harbour, and the path is fringed with flowers, both wildflowers and ‘garden escapes’.

It’s a short walk, but one well worth taking if you have an hour or so to spare. But, when you get to Kinsale, you’ll want to spend far longer than an hour there.



  1. HI Keith,
    Sounds like a lovely place to walk, and going by your photos, I can see that there would be plenty of places that you may wish to stop and just enjoy what is around you.

    • Indeed, I stopped and looked around! Wait till I put the video up next week!
