We stayed in this lovely hotel in Kinsale for two nights recently. We were greeted by a very friendly receptionist . Her name was Madalene. We were upgraded to their best room as we were celebrating an Anniversary. We had a very lovely meal in the Blue Haven Bistro that night and was given a Port on the house! Breakfast... More

Just returned from a beautiful stay at the blue haven hotel. We had a warm reception when booking in and this carried onto our meal in the Fishmarket restaurant later that night.. Looking forward to returning very soon. The Dunlea family cork=)

We had a wonderful dinner in the Blue Haven Bistro.... The decor is simple, resembling the interior of a ship in a very subtle way. Our server was attentive without being cloying. The mussels were tiny and tender swimming in a yummy broth. My husbands salmon was well prepared and presented, and my Hake was perfectly seasoned and cooked, and... More

Stayed here for a long weekend break. Great staff, superb breakfasts, comfortable bar with good entertainment but the plumbing isn't great. We had a cold room and a scalding shower. Otherwise would recommend it.

Myself and my boyfriend stayed here while attending a wedding in Kinsale. We cannot recommend it enough. The rooms were super comfortable and clean. The bar had a really cozy atmosphere and the food was excellent. Breakfast which was included was really good and the staff were all really helpful and friendly. The only downside was on street parking but... More

This hotel has many good facilities but business users should be aware that it seems to be primarily a tourist and holiday resort. I stayed on a midweek night and was kept awake by live music in the bar until nearly midnight. This seems to take place 7 nights a week. In addition I was woken at 5am by delivery... More

We were passing through and needed somewhere to eat on a windy Sunday lunchtime. The Blue Haven restaurant and bar were full but staff opened up another area and made the seven of us comfortable. Drinks were ordered and arrived quickly and similarly there was very little delay in fulfilling the food orders. The quality and portions were excellent. I... More

We were staying in another part of Kinsale and were looking for a good spot for a night out. The bar happened to have a cracking live band playing, We found seats easily enough and joined in the fun as the band rocked the place. I believe they were called Sons of Steve McQueen. They played rock stuff like Bon... More

This was a charming hotel. Great staff. No elevator so be preapred to haul your bags three flights. Rooms were ok … there was mold on the wallpaper around the window, bathroom could have been cleaner. Beds were super comfy. TV was outdated. Breakfast was awesome. You have to park on the street and that was challenging!

Have just come back from a two night stay in the Blue Haven, with my mum. Even before we arrived I spoke to Michelle (Receptionist) on the phone and she said they had a room in the Blue Haven held for us, but we could check out their sister hotel, Old Bank House, and choose the room we preferred. We... More
