Dublin Airport : Covers most European capitals and some of the more exotic destinations such as Abu Dhabi, Toronto, Chicago, Atlanta, New York, Boston and Orlando.
Shannon Airport: There are direct flights to Shannon from New York and Boston airports. I even believe there's a direct flight from Toronto (but only once a week!)
Cork Airport: A few European cities such as Barcelona, Paris, Amsterdam, Munich, Geneva and Rome have direct flights into Cork.
Shannon & Dublin airports: Anyone flying into these airports will need to hire a car to get to Kinsale or make their way to Cork via train or bus and get a taxi from Cork.

Car Hire
Once in Kinsale you will not need a car as everything is within walking distance of the centre of town. We will be organising transport to bring people to/from centre of Kinsale to the wedding venue (only 5 mins from centre of Kinsale) on the Saturday.
If you do wish to hire a car Cork airport provides a range of car hire options. Please note if you are a UK driving licence holder you may be asked for the paper copy of your driving licence and should bring it with you.

Ferry Option
If you are feeling a bit adventurous and want to test your car on the Irish roads the best ferry options from the UK are:
Stena Line: From Fishguard to Rosslare (approx.. 3hrs from Kinsale)
Irish Ferries: From Pembroke to Rosslare
Fastnet: From Swansea to Cork

IMPORTANT BORING STUFF: In case you need to do a quick check on whether you need a visa or not for Ireland, take a look at the Irish Department of Foreign Affairs website which contains all the exciting details.
