What an experience after being in France and the U.K. Peace, manners, value for money, breakfast, music in the lounge, centre of all in Kinsale. Room too small, that's all.! People need to know that hotels in Ireland are far better than any other in Europe. Much less expensive than the U.K. and breakfast, ambiance and front of house miles... More

Had the pleasure of staying at the Blue Haven for one night. Never been to Kinsale and it is a beautiful spot. And the Blue Haven is the icing on the cake.

Without doubt the nicest hotel we have ever stayed in . We re not world travellers but everything about this place is class. The receptionist Madeleine could not be nicer and the other staff are super. Kinsale is so quaint ,you never want to leave and the blue haven is just perfect.

Had a lovely dinner in the Restaurant. Scallop asparagus and sticky toffee pudding. Sublime. It was a little pricey and not all that filling but extremely tasty. Each flavour was amazing. I would recommend trying this restaurant.

Genuinely welcoming staff. Comfortable bars and public areas. A heating problem in the bedroom was swiftly responded to with a room transfer. Great location in the centre of Kinsale. Quality breakfast.
