Great venue, BBQ food was excellent and the reserved area in the secret garden was perfect for our group. Staff were also excellent.
We had the second day of our wedding here and we couldn’t recommend the service and bbq food more.We were made to feel so comfortable and had such a great time thanks to you
Excellent Service and food was great
I hosted my going away party, and due to unforeseen circumstances the party started one hour later than planned but all the staff were completely accommodating as well as understanding. There was not a single moment where my guests did not feel welcomed. Thank you to everyone who was involved in making the event one to remember.

We were attending a social club BBQ at the Blue Haven we were greeted by John Paul when we arrived and he went above and beyond to help us all evening and along with all the staff they looked after us very well and catered for all our needs. The BBQ was outstanding absolutely delicious. The new outside seating area was perfect and everyone was seated together at reserved tables. We were all very impressed and will definitely be going back. Thanks to all
Thanks to the Blue Haven and Hamlets for a fantastic day out in Kinsale for me and my company colleagues. The organization and communication ahead of the event ensured that I had no stress at all in the lead up and let me and all my colleagues enjoy the day thoroughly. The quality of the food and service was impeccable.
Helena was Very helpful at the time of booking and all the staff in Hamlet's were very pleasant and really competent at their jobs. We will be returning again.
Fabulous dining experience for afternoon tea for a group of 16. Did not get the gentleman's name who served us but he was superb. A huge thanks to him for looking after us so well.
I booked the blue haven for a hen party 32 people for food and drinks in Aperitif tapas restaurant, I can not recommend enough. The food was amazing, we got the set tapas menu which I was afraid may not be enough but we got so much food. The service and staff were exceptional and so attentive with drinks. They then had an area reserved in hamlets for us and gave us our dessert there. Overall a great evening can not recommend enough..
