Had a quick drink here with friends recently. The weather was so good we got to sit outside and enjoyed the sunshine while the world went by. Very friendly staff and great location (as is everything, lol) in the centre of the town.

The locals favorite this pub, and have since 1690. Step back in history when you step inside The Greyhound in Kinsale. It is easy to imagine seamen that arrived home from the Atlantic 325 years ago, that headed straight for the pub. Many years ago the waters edge came right up to the pub, today it sits back a couple... More

Sophistication, elegance, modern, ...no! Character yes! You just have to try its charm! You have to climb those rickety stairs to the loo! but be careful, take the wrong turning and youre in a different bar..they share the same toilets! This bar is a one off, so dont miss it.

This is simply a must visit if you are visiting Cork and Kinsale. Nestled in the back lanes this original and very traditional Irish pub steps you back in time. The fact it also serves easily one of the best pints of stout I have experienced in Ireland is a bonus. Quiet (except late weekend evenings), warm and cosy, it's... More

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
