Kinsale accommodation -- bank holiday weekend??We will be visiting Ireland (from Canada) in May/June. We think we'll be in the Cork area about May 25th and would need 2 nights accommodation. We like the idea of staying in Kinsale -- sounds like a great place to stay but we are having a problem finding accommodation there -- and we don't want it to be a 5-star rating. Is this also a bank holiday weekend? Would it be necessary to book ahead if this is the case or can we still take our chances with finding lodging the same day. We are basically looking for a room in a house.

1You may have to opt for BnB. There is not a public holiday at the end of May but there is one on the first Monday in June. Kinsale is popular and doesn't have a huge amount of accom. If I was you, I'd book ahead.
Search goireland.com for options. There appears to be some for less than EUR75 a night around that time.
