The instructions to find the Rockview B&B in Kinsale were, “if you’re coming from Skibbereen look for the white house, go left and that’s the Glen Rockview…”
Al wasn’t too impressed with these instructions. “How are we going to find THE white house?” he groused.
Then I saw it, ‘The White House’ and our B&B was just to the left of it. Easy!Of course, that wasn’t the only white house in Kinsale but almost – this was a very colourful town! The Kinsale tourism poster is as brightly coloured as most of the town although almost every house in it is more or less white.However, our B&B, the Rockview House got us started with a very yellow exterior. Al fit right in to this brightly coloured town.There was pink and green with a dash of orange on the corner.Turquoise and green.
Orange, yellow and pink.
And cerulean and red.A pink house stands out among the grey ones. Next up was to Hamlet’s Pub for dinner of mussels for Al and crab on toasts for me. The beer we tested was a Handsum IPA; never could resist a handsome man.Coming from Skibbereen, we spent the day touring a batch of beaches along with the ruins of Timoleague Friary and the Bronze Age Stone Circle in Drombeg.More on our 2015 trip to Ireland.
