Displaying items by tag: Old Head of Kinsale

A former farm in Kinsale with spectacular sea views is inviting final offers by private treaty.
The 370-acre waterfront property was formerly the proposed location for the Kinsale Harbour Resort. The land is laid out in flat fields with good road frontage, and is available in one or two lots.
Lot 1 comprises 270 acres of land at Ballymachus and Rathmore, while lot 2 is 100 acres at Hangman's Point, Prehane, overlooking the entrance to Kinsale Harbour with top-class views of the Old Head of Kinsale, Charles Fort and the town itself.
Christy Buckley Auctioneer advises that the land may be suitable for leisure use, subject to planning.

The Kinsale RNLI Lifeboat was launched at 5.15 pm on Sunday afternoon to go to the aid of a 17ft Mastercraft, with two passengers on board, which had lost power and was anchored one mile east off the Old Head of Kinsale.
Sunday was one of the busiest sailing days of the summer, with very crowded seas. The distressed craft did not have a radio on board. Their only means of contact with shore was a weak mobile phone signal. Thankfully conditions were flat and visibility good, so helmsman Temba Jere and crew members Mark Lewis and Ian Fitzgerald were able to locate the boat and tow it back to the safety of Kinsale Harbour within 40 minutes.
The RNLI offers a free SEA Check service to all boat users which will help you make sure you have all the right safety equipment on board. Call freefone 1800 789 589 and the RNLI team will be happy to advise you.
