Blue Haven Hotel Kinsale
The Blue Haven has always been at the centre of Kinsale’s powerhouse food culture. The hotel was one of the originators in the town which created Ireland’s first food lovers' destination and, fifty years on, it remains a dedicated and dynamic creator of delicious things to eat, of memorable experiences and memories, of the best of times.
Owner Ciaran Fitzgerald and his team view their calling in a very total way, achieving this by creating a series of stand-alone experiences throughout the hotel. Of course, you want to eat seafood in a harbour town like Kinsale, so they offer The Fish Market to satisfy your piscine hunger, offering the specialities of a crack team of seafood specialists. But then there is also the Bar & Bistro for enjoying comforting food and good drinks, and for listening to music. Then there is the newly-arrived Rare 1784, where the hotel’s mixologists fire up classy cocktails, alongside exciting cooking, and you can also take afternoon tea in the Newport Lounge. In fact, the Blue Haven truly offers a cruise ship experience: everything you could need or might desire is all here, exactingly prepared for you, and with elegant rooms to rest your head afterwards. The Blue Haven never ages, it simply glides elegantly, seamlessly onwards through the years.
