First the bad. We were told (two of us separately) that we could park in loading zone in front of hotel without worry on Sunday as long as we moved our car by Monday at 10:30 a.m. It is expensive to park in this town, especially near the hotel. We departed at 10:15 a.m. on Monday with a 40 euro... More

great location to a very funky town, with a good restaurant, and entertaining bar area. Hotel rooms were of a high standard and good size, with reasonable sized bathrooms - have stayed in smaller. Noise was an issue, however we were out most of the evening and in a happy mind so not too difficult to deal with. Lovely view,... More

Not the first time we've stayed at the Blue Haven which tells you something. But having said that it might be the last. Note to self; check if there's a rock festival next time you book a hotel for the weekend. Yes,the BlueHaven isn't built for noise attenuation. We were with friends. Their first task on the first morning was... More

Lovely welcoming, clean and cosy hotel right in the heart of Kinsale. Room and bathroom were small but we were warned of that before arrival so we were pleasantly surprised. The very handy central location is great but the noise from the surrounding pubs is pretty loud - we were ok but probably best avoided if older or with young... More

The rooms are just so cute. They feel like the best room in my granny's old house. Mahogany headboards, wardrobe and chest of drawers that must be antique. Mullioned windows through which you can see the flower boxes. The shower was wonderfully strong and really refreshing. The food in both the bistro (evening meal) and the cafe (breakfast) was excellent.... More

My husband and I spent a night in this hotel on 29 July, 2014. We could not fault this hotel on any count at all. The staff were very helpful and friendly and the room was very clean and spacious. Breakfast was great with a vast choice of organic food served there. We had music in the bar at night... More

The best part of the Hotel is the bar and restaurant. The room was small, but comfortable, television didn't work too well, but we were tired anyway. Once again while in Ireland no wash cloths. Also the parking is on the street, or in a parking garage a ways from the hotel. Also the biggy if you have heavy suitcases,... More

Stayed one night and on arrival the receptionist was cheerful and helpful. We were allocated a good sized room, which was very clean and nicely decorated, with a decent sized en suite. Huge bed! Great night's sleep. Excellent breakfast, and plenty of choices on the menu.

Visited here on Sunday evening with my partner, parents and son and couldn't have been happier. The hotel is lovely, welcoming and the staff couldn't have been more friendly! Anytime something was served to our table, the waitresses took the time to show our son some attention which he loves! I always find when restaurants treat children as people also... More
