Since setting up in the pretty seaside town near Cork in 2013, Blacks of Kinsale just keeps winning awards. The husband-and-wife team produces KPA, Model T Stout, The Session IPA, 1601 Lager, Black IPA and High Viz Double IPA. Kinsale, of course, is the beginning and end of the Wild Atlantic Way, and is rightly famous for its laidback, artistic vibe and fantastic food, particularly fish. Take a wander, have a great meal and enjoy the local brew. Brewery tours are seasonal, so check in advance.
