Stayed for a long weekend, wonderful location in the centre of Kinsale, the food was gorgeous, the café does a lovely breakfast and coffee and the room was very well furnished and comfy. Will definitely be back!

We had a nice meal at the Blue Haven restaurant, short ribs for himself and tuna for me. They did a nice job and I would try it again. My favorite part wad the bar and the local traditional music. We enjoyed a memorable evening.

Last night 8 of us went to the Blue Haven for an evening meal. The food was very good but the room was cold and the service was AWFUL. We had to repeatedly ask for water; waited 1/2 hour for our drinks order; had to get up from the table to ask the staff if we needed anything. The restaurant...

We had a great weekend at the Blue Haven. Very very friendly staff, they really cannot do enough for you. Food was lovely too. I wouldn't call it a boutique hotel exactly, it's just small and friendly but there was a very welcome nespresso machine in the room.

We found this place by accident, because some friends were staying there. Rooms are good sizes, well equipped, and comfortable. Breakfast was outstanding, extensive buffet and good size menu.... The staff were nice and friendly, helpful, particular at the reception desk. Next time we are in this wonderful town, this will be our hotel to stay.
