On arrival at The Blue Haven you are greeted by an on street Moet Champagne terrace, a not so subtle hint that your culinary journey is just about to begin. The Blue Haven Hotel is a classical boutique hotel, with a nautical twist, nestled in the famously busy and picturesque harbor town of Kinsale, the gateway to The Wild Atlantic Way and only 25 minutes from Cork city.  

The original building and its character dates back to the 1800s and is the historical site of both the towns fish & meat markets, as well as a bonded warehouse. Today, with a rich tapestry of local artisan food suppliers, Kinsale is positively known as the food capital of Ireland, so it seems more than appropriate that the legacy of the property is suitably honored as the hotel hosts several exciting restaurant & dining concepts in these spaces.

With sixteen individually appointed rooms, comfort and personal service is at the core of our ethos. Each room features a King Koil Pocket Sprung Bed, Cookies on arrival, Nespresso machines, Apple TV's, Dyson Purifiers and Supersonic Hair Dryers in your bedroom.

Food & Beverage experiences are at the core of what we do. Our team of internationally experienced chefs, sommeliers and mixologists from every corner of the world bring a wealth of expressions in the dishes, wine lists and craft cocktails that you will find on our menus.
