Kitty O Se’s Pub is a must visit spot favored by both locals and visitors. The pub is the only traditional Irish music venue in Kinsale. Every night of the week, you can find live music by great local bands. The sound of traditional music travels down Kinsale’s streets inviting those walking by to enjoy a pint of Guinness and to dance with locals.
The pub is family friendly and is the perfect place to introduce children to Ireland’s beautiful music. The best time to take a seat for dinner is around 6:30pm so that live music will start while you are enjoying the region’s dishes. Inside, Kitty O Se’s bar area can hold up to 200 people, so after 10pm it may become a little too loud for younger guests.
In addition to great music, the pub serves up pints of Guinness, Irish Coffees and incredibly fresh locally sourced seafood. While you’re there you can taste test local Irish food like Fish and Chips, Cottage Pie and fresh mussels.
