We arrived to a very nice welcome, the room was lovely and cosy and very warm. We had food down in the bar which was to die for. We will defo be back again. The weather was very bad but Kinsale has loads of pubs with great entertainment and the Blue Haven is ideally located. 😄👍.

Very nice staff, accommodating and friendly. food was better than average. Nice bar. It was my second time staying there and would recommend it to all. Can be a bit noisy in the morning, because of doors opening and closing.

Stayed here on our second night in Ireland. The hotel is in a nice location. The check in was easy and the rooms were clean. We had a room on the front and there was a lot of noise. We were tired so that didn't bother us. We ate at the bar and to say the service was bad would... More

Stayed here for 4 very pleasant nights and had a ball. Room was small but adequate. It is situated In the heart of the town. Great breakfasts. Had one meal in the bar which was excellent. Great entertainment in the evenings and the staff are terrific. Highly recommended.

We had a very nice Sunday lunch in the Blue Haven hotel. The hotel itself is built on the site of the old fish market with the old fish market wall acting as the entrance to the restaurant. Lovely fish & chips had by whole party. Very friendly service.

Just had breakfast here and must say that it was of a very good standard. Good quality West Cork ingredients and lovely batch loaf bread. Only gripe is that coffee was extra which really should be included. All in all, would return again.

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
