Doing Business in Kinsale is a new, glossy 80-page book highlighting why this famous town has built a well-deserved reputation as great place to live and work.

The idea for creating ‘Doing Business in Kinsale’ came from Cormac Fitzgerald, Managing Director of Fitzgerald & Partners accountancy firm in Kinsale, who then engaged Star Creative to work on the project as a joint venture.

The guide features contributions and articles from leading commentators, businesspeople and politicians including high profile economist, Jim Power; Ger O’Mahoney, Chairman of ‘Visit Cork’ Strategic Task Force and PWC partner; Niall MacCarthy, CEO Cork Airport and Simon Coveney TD, Deputy leader Fine Gael, as well as Kinsale Chamber of Tourism & Business and the Kinsale Good Food Circle.

Cormac Fitzgerald FCPA says: ‘We wanted to create a guide to promote Kinsale to a wide yet targeted audience of key investors, influencers, entrepreneurs or expatriates looking for the ideal location to live, relocate or to develop a business. Kinsale offers a great quality of life, a vibrant business community and is only twenty minutes being from Cork city, Cork airport and the motorway network.’

Sean Mahon, Managing Director of Star Creative says: ‘As a businessman and family man I always think of Kinsale as a great place to be based for a good work-life balance. It has a vibrant and eclectic business community, access to good education options, first class shops, hotels and restaurants and great connectivity. Have I sold it to you yet?’

The guide launched today is available in hard copy and as a digital edition at and will be promoted via social media, email and a targeted mail-out of the book to key individuals in business and government in Ireland, the UK and overseas.
