The Wall of Remeberance is a tree planted for every first responder, fireman, policeman, clergy. Who perished on 911. It is an amazing emotional place. It is out of the way and the only reason we knew about it was from the proprietor of the...More

This is a stunning and beautiful Memorial. It is simple but surreal and moving. Walking the grounds and reading the names of the brave souls is a must if you are in Kinsale. I loved it and can't wait to go back.

Our guide knew about this off the beaten trail attraction and I was very surprised on how moving it was to walk through this garden.

Stop by the Garden of Remembrance if you are in Kinsale. A beautiful, peaceful location honoring the fallen firefighters of 9/11. No charge, but there is a donation box to help with the upkeep.

Garden of Remembrance is off the beaten path, but definitely worth a visit. A tree was planted for each NYFD who was lost during 9/11, also a tree for Father Michael who also lost his life. It is a wonderful tribute.

This is a beautiful tribute to the Brave souls of the NYFD who gave everything trying to help others. So beautiful. Worth a visit. Note:No facilities here, just a memorial in a remote area of Kinsale.

Writing a review doesn't do this place justice. It's not flashy, or romantic. It's not artful or elegant. It's a simple memorial using a natural setting and nature items to express grief over the loss of some incredible people who gave their lives doing their...More

It is off of the main road to Old Head. Coming from Kinsale when you see signs for Old Head pointing to the left, take a right away from Old Head and take the first right off of that road. It is on the left. People very... More

If you don't have a car then I guess a taxi is your best way - it's a little outside the main city area, maybe a 10 minute drive.
