What to Buy in Kinsale - Kinsale
An Overview: What to Buy in Kinsale Various Review

When it comes to shopping you could really go crazy in Kinsale. So many tastefully appointed shops with artistically displayed goods. These goods come at a price though so unless you want to buy maybe one good craft item,it is best to windowshop. If you have to buy a wooly jumper in Kinsale then Heather Mountain on Market Street is probably your best bet. For pottery;glass or ceramics any of the large gift shops - the one right next door to the tourist office has a huge selection.
There are two good bookshops :An Bookstor on Newmans Mall and the Kinsale Bookshop on Main Street. Of the two I prefer the Kinsale Bookshop, which provides a chair near the travel and art section, and where I feel more comfortable browsing. The prettiest shop in Kinsale, I think, is the bright orange 'Stone Mad Gallery'. Inside is pretty too with masses of quirky, pretty things at prices which wont break the bank. l

What to buy: Pottery or glass if you want to buy something of excellent quality and design. Wooly sheep if you have to bring home a toy fora child, exotic foodstuffs from one of the many delicatessens,
a book or CD which will always remind you of your time in Kinsale.

What to pay: As much as you can afford.
