What I did
Along the walk to Charles Fort you are rewarded with spectacular views of Kinsale and of some nice houses along the water. When we finally arrived at the Fort we went through the main gate and it was like being transported to another time. When inside the Fort you are allowed to explore on your own, and explore we did, we went everywhere you could possibly go
After we had seen everything possible of the Fort, we took the long walk back into Kinsale. We were not unaccompanied however, since a dog chose to lead us back. In Ireland people don't really put leases on their dogs and a lot of the dogs go off on their own, which is kind of unheard of in the States. Nevertheless Karen, which is the name we gave to the dog, lead us back to Kinsale and before leaving we got a bite to eat at Stiva's Cafe and had some panini's. Finally after a long day we got back on the bus where everyone took a much deserved nap and took the trip back to Cork City.
