Kinsale gears up for Vintage Rally 2015 with the launch 
@ Blue Haven Kinsale

One of the most exciting and spectacular weekends on the Kinsale events is The Blue Haven Kinsale Vintage Rally, taking place this May 8th to 11th 2015. With over 100 amazing Vintage cars on display in Kinsale over the weekend, it really is a fun filled family weekend worth seeing. 

The launch took place in the main sponsor Blue Haven Hotel today Wednesday 15th April outside The Blue Haven, where we they had newly crowned Miss Ireland, tea/coffee refreshments and a sample of some of the vintage car’s to come.  
It is a very successful event and starts the calendar year for Kinsale Vintage Rally.

Now entering its 26th year, it is widely regarded as one of the premier events on the 
Irish classic car calendar.

Following the twinning of Kinsale with the Welsh town of Mumbles in 1990, KVCMC also decided to twin with the town’s own car club, The Swansea Historic Vehicle Register. Each year sees large numbers of SHVR members make the trip to Kinsale for the May rally, a gesture that is returned each July when the club makes the return trip to Swansea.

Kinsale Vintage & Classic Motor Club originally established in 1988 by a group of classic car enthusiasts, the club has since grown to a current membership of over 100 members. All members share a common passion –their love of driving and preserving the classic cars. Indeed one could ask for no better setting than the historic town of Kinsale and the surrounding beauty of the West Cork countryside.
