Kinsale has other pub restaurants, but none with such an idyllic waterside location. In summer, bar food is served on the big stone quay, midway between the town and Charles Fort, which looks back to the town and out to the unspoiled outer harbor. The characterful interior has a large open fireplace and a maritime theme, with a quirky selection of furniture. The bar menu is simple, and features fresh local produce, including lobster and oysters from nearby Oysterhaven
Bay. Toddies, the first-floor restaurant, open from 6 pm, has a stunning sea view and a slightly more extensive menu, including fillet steak with Parmesan mash and onion rings, and daily seafood specials.
