Yes, I know Ireland is not the U.K. but allow me a little poetic license. We took the public bus from Cork City to charming Kinsale and while we were wandering around the town, we happened to stop in at the Woolen Mill Shop. The delightful proprietor recommended the Blue Haven as a good place for lunch. Though technically a restaurant, I will count it as a pub since we sat outside in the cute courtyard and ordered pints—hence pub crawl! The food is decent, restrooms clean, and the wait staff really nice!

Attended a party here recently with every last detail looked after brilliantly by the events manager Helena. Extremely friendly staff and food is excellent as is obvious by how popular the resturants are. Would highly reccommend this gem in the heart of Kinsale!

As a family of 4 we were very pleasantly surprised by an impromptu early dinner at the Blue Haven. Kids meals were fresh and well cooked. My wife and I had a thai curry and fairly interesting pork-based pizza. The service was very quick, friendly and professional and made for a relaxing meal, a rare event with 2 young kids! We'll definitely be back :)

Just had a very nice stay at the Blue Haven that was somewhat spoiled by the terrible parking set up at the hotel. On arrival we were directed to a local super market car park with free overnight parking. Unfortunately the receptionist neglected to tell us there were two separate car parks.. car clamped with an €80 release fee. Our complaint was not entertained and not taken seriously. Spoiled the whole experience ..
Please take note ...

The staff at the Blue Haven are the first indication that your stay is going to be wonderful. The rooms were comfortable, the meals were delicious, the location is perfect, and everyone here was friendly and welcoming and helpful. It's a great place to stay and eat!
