About Us

At 4 Main Street, this pub has served ale in Kinsale for 250 years. The Mortimers first purchased the licensed premises in 1984 and with undivided professionalism, commitment, endeavour and accumulated expertise have succeeded in establishing the Lord Kingsale as a premier house of distinction in Ireland with an infamous reputation throughout the world.

Throughout the year the evening programme varies from traditional Irish songs, music and poetry. The overall welcoming, friendly and homely atmosphere that The Lord Kingsale possesses in plenitude is due to the fact that the Mortimers treat the premises as an extension of their own home: and their customers as an extension of their ever increasing circle of friends.

Food at the Lord Kingsale can best described as delicious and wholesome with Maureen personally preparing the daily fare of sumptuous home-cooked dishes, drawn from quality local fresh ingredients. A typical menu would offer home made soup, a selection of sandwiches, oysters, seafood platters and speciality of the house - smoked salmon.

The function room has a glowing identity that has been meticulously preserved to captivate the olde worlds ambience that prevails. Function time at this splendid venue lends itself to a castle-like setting that is reminiscent of a medieval banqueting hall. Indeed any function (check capacity with management) wedding, party, or special occasion would be gracefully enhanced in this self-contained setting that offers 'a touch of class' with a hint of memorable difference. The Kinsale brick fireplace, the sheened maple floor and expressive, chosen mementoes including a silhouette of 'Ringroan Castle' adds an air of nostalgic elegance to the exclusive charm of the Lord Kingsale.

All of our rooms are superbly decorated to a very high standard, incredibly comfortable and are all en-suite. All the rooms have televisions, a wireless internet facility as well as fax facilities. The building it self also has a wireless internet facility.

Function Room
This is a beautiful original stone walled room that is unique and is as old as the origins of building itself. Not only is it the only original room of its kind and size in Kinsale but it is undoubtedly the most popular. The room can seat up to 70 people very comfortably and lends itself to any occasion, christenings, weddings, private dinner parties, functions, art exhibitions and business conferences.
