One of the most exciting and spectacular weekends on the Kinsale calendar of events is The Blue Haven Kinsale Vintage Rally, taking place this May 11th to 13th.
Blue Haven are proud sponsors and partners for over 10 years of the Kinsale Vintage Rally.
With over 100 amazing Vintage cars on display in Kinsale over the weekend, it really is a fun filled family event.
The launch took place at the Blue Haven Hotel yesterday, where some of the vintage cars were on display.
Now entering its 29th year, it is widely regarded as one of the premier events on theIrish 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 was 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 of yesteryear. Indeed, one could ask for no better setting than the historic town of Kinsale and the surrounding beauty of the West Cork countryside.
