Lovely hotel in the middle of town, surrounded by great music at night! Ideal for traveling in the area. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Rooms very comfortable combining tradition with comfort and necessities. Would happily return

The Blue Haven hotel was the venue for my stepson and his new brides wedding reception, we had guests from England and Canada and we were treated to absolutely superb food. The venue was beautifully decorated and the staff were very welcoming and the quality of the food was some of the best we have tasted from the hors d'oeuvres... More

We enjoyed a lovely cup of tea @ The Blue Haven in May this year on a very pleasant afternoon. Whilst service was a bit slow - our teas & cake to share were excellent & it was very busy as many of our travelling friends on the Queen Victoria were also in town & enjoying a cuppa as well.... More

Arrived in Kinsale on a Tuesday evening and had a wander round before deciding on The Blue Haven for a meal. A few of the places in town were closed but my friend had heard of this restaurant and wanted to eat there. Great choice. The food was excellent, we had a lovely Polish waitress and I thought £93 for... More

My wife and I stopped here for drinks and to take in some traditional music. The interior of the pub-side of the hotel is very upscale and modern while still celebrating Kinsale's heritage by virtue of a "wall of fame" featuring famous residents and historical events. There are plenty of nooks for two people to sit and talk privately with... More

I was down in Kinsale today to enjoy the sun, the sights and of course a 99 cone with my girlfriend. After our 99's we decided to leave but my car battery died and my mobile was dead, I didn't know what to do so i thought i would ask if there was a garage around. We went into the... More

We met some friends in here for drinks on Friday. It was quite busy and loud at times so we moved on quite quickly. The service was fine but we didn't stay long enough to give more feedback on the facilities.

I stayed for two nights at the Blue Haven for a wedding I was attending just a few miles from the town. My bedroom was lovely and the staff couldn't have been more helpful. Always on hand to give advice, call a taxi or even for a quick chat. Very friendly place and loved every minute of it. There was... More
