This venue looked very closed and we couldn't see any sign of when it was open. Disappointing as it would have been quite interesting.

We saw signs for the building. We found the building. We couldn't find a main door, and saw no signs saying it was closed, or under construction, or anything. The website said it had been under construction but had been due to be re-opened. Obviously, it wasn't. Just disappointing that we wasted vacation time trying to figure it out.

I moved to Kinsale 2 years ago and this has never been open. Maybe it was a museum once but it's not open. Thd building is cute though.

Trip to Kinsale was a bit of a write off! The tourist information office was shut, at 10am! This caste is closed all summer. It would have been nice to know!

While the castle wasn't open when we visited the building itself is a nice little urban castle which appears to be in pretty good condition. I like castles so I liked Desmond Castle and thought it was worth the visit.
