Food is good in Kinsale, but it can prove to be expensive. Two good bang for the buck places are Kirby's, a nice Italian pizzeria and pasta place, and Hoby's, a nice sitdown fixed menu restaurant. Kirby's is definitely off the beaten path hidden behind the major hotel, the Acton's - but the tourist office should be able to point you to them.
