Located at the start of the Wild Atlantic Way in historic Kinsale, Blue Haven Hotel is our four-star award-winning boutique hotel just waiting to receive you with open arms (and freshly-baked cookies on arrival).
For foodie lovers, there’s no better place to stay in this patch of Ireland. We’re a well-known culinary gem with an array of dining and drinking areas to enjoy at your leisure: mix it up between our luxurious bar, lounge, fish market bistro and restaurant, whiskey and cocktail bar, ‘Rare 1784’. Pack your dancing shoes – we host great live music seven nights a week, and when you stay overnight, you can benefit from contemporary amenities and super-soft beds, too.
Kinsale, originally a mediaeval fishing port, is one of the most picturesque and popular towns on the southwest coast of Ireland, hailed as its ‘gourmet capital’. The Blue Haven Hotel is built on the site of the old fish and meat markets dating back to 1784 – a heritage we’ve honoured by restoring some of the building’s original openings, archways and wall finishes. Admire the echoes of its past while enjoying the comforts of today when you book with us. We do hope you stay for a while.
