Directions

Walking:  We are 600m from the Kinsale Tourist Office.

Don't rely on Google Maps as it can lead you astray!

Exiting the Tourist office right, take a right and right again walking up Eastern Road (R600) in the Cork direction. Turn left up Featherbed Lane and then first right and in 50m,  walk up the steps/ramp. Lidl is in front of you. The Meadery is up another small ramp past the Post office at the end of that row.

Driving:

Take the turn on R600 at Barrack Lane at the Garage/Dempsey’s Hostel and follow the road around through the small roundabout and drive past Lidl through the gates to where there is parking. The Meadery is up the short ramp on the right, just past the Post Office at the end of that row.
