I've been returning to The Greyhound almost every year since I emigrated in 1988. It's never changed both in decor and it's unrivalled friendliness, now happening in the guise of the current barman, Stephen, who hails from Galway. I had great fun watching Galway play Kerry at Gaelic football on the bar's TV, enjoying Stephen's witty observations. The Guinness was... More

Dark wood , little light, warped floor boards, tilting walls, small doorways,smell of Guinness on tap, what could be more authentic for a pub established in 1690?! You can sit inside at the tiny bar or in an adjoining room, or at outdoor tables. It is on a small back alley facing little private homes, lovely setting. The proprietor may... More

It was a Tuesday night in November so there wasn't too much going on. We headed to The Greyhound and we were not disappointed. I wish I could remember the name of the guy working...he was quite funny with a dry sense of humor. Love it! We sat outside by the heater and enjoyed pints and cocktails for a bit.... More

Find the Greyhound! It is a typical old style pub full of locals and character. I really enjoyed the little sngs in the side room. We had a wonderful time there!

Sorry to older people but most of the bars, pubs & lounges in Kinsale were full of oldies or families with children running around. Trust me, I walked around town several times and there was nothing else. A woman working in a big gift shop told me to try the Greyhound after I told her I was bored & all... More

We dropped into this little bar one evening about 5pm. There are several snugs, the barman came to our little part of the lounge and lit a big log and coal fire and was so friendly. The guinness was wonderful and so reasonably priced. A little gem of a pub.

kinsale is a rather posh town with attitudes to go with. The Greyhound is a 400 year old pub that is actually a cool place to drink with local people, not tarted up for tourists. Awesome music, a cast of characters and someone's friendly dog roaming around make this a fun place for a drink. If you are much over... More
