Day trips from Kinsale


We are staying in Kinsale in September, but we will not have a car. Can you recommend a car service from Kinsale to Blarney or Kinsale to Cobh?

I know there is a bus to and from Cork, but we were trying to cut down on some travel time with a car service or Uber.

The problem with using taxis or a car service is that it will likely be extremely costly, as you will need to spend a few hours at the different destinations before you return to Kinsale.

Is renting a car (even for just a day or two) TOTALLY out of the question?

Your best bet is to just use local taxi companies to take you. Then you aren’t paying the driver to wait around. Take one from close to where you are leaving from as they will usually be able to get you faster as they have more cabs in the area.

For Kinsale, Kinsale Cabs have always worked for me


For Blarney, any of the major Cork cab companies will be fine.



Sun Cabs don’t have a website, but their phone number is 0214292929

There are a few cab companies in Cobh, but I’ve never used any so can’t recommend. The Cork ones will happily serve Cobh too, but you may have a short wait.
