"For forty five years, Jim Edwards has been a standard bearer in Kinsale's distinguished culinary culture.

Everything chimes sweetly in Jim Edwards, one of the archetypal destinations that built Kinsale's reputation as the first town in Ireland to become a dining destination, more than forty years ago. With Liam Edwards at the helm, the bar and the dining room - and their accommodation rooms upstairs - offer everything the visitor to Kinsale is looking for: a great welcome and great service; charm; comfort; and of course good cooking. We really admire the fact that they serve the great classic dishes - kidneys Madeira; Kinsale mussels with garlic breadcrumbs; black sole on the bone - and do so with such aplomb. If you are seeking the esscence of Kinsale, then you will find it right here in Jim Edwards."
