We had a hen night at the Blue Haven on Saturday 29/2/2020, I cannot recommend the Blue Haven more highly. When i first got in touch with Aleksandra to book she was so helpful and nothing was too difficult. Aleksandra booked us a room for 34 people with a 3 course meal and was also able to organise wine and drinks with dinner. When we arrived the room was decorated for us and the private area was perfect for us. The staff were so friendly and attentive. Everyone felt so well looked after and the food was fabulous. We also all got our meals at the same time which was a tough job having 34 ladies to feed. Aleksandra then booked us a private area in Hamlets bar which was perfect and lots of dancing space. We had an amazing night with the Blue Haven. I would recommend anyone planning a trip to Kinsale to stay and eat at the Blue Haven. Thank you all so much for making our trip so memorable and making us feel so welcome that night. Maria

Staff were so friendly, one of the nicest steak sandwiches I ever had! I have my sister's hen meal in the Bluehaven in April 2020, and I can't wait to comeback.

Pan fried hake was delicious. However paired with stone cold mashed potato and raw beans it was a tough to love it as an overall dish. Calamari was deplorable. No oysters - we understand catch of the day etc but no one told us. We had booked and specifically requested oysters but were not informed about the unavailability of oysters until after we ordered 3 entrees of oysters. On reflection we would have chosen a different restaurant upon learning there were no oysters (after booking 24 hours previously on the specific request to have oysters) Definitely wouldn’t recommend.

The food was gorgeous. There was lots of variety in the 13.50 per person option and everyone got plenty of food. The bar staff also took drink orders from the table and brought the drink out to us which was great.

Killian did another Irish Coffee demo/whiskey tour for my group at Kinsale Culinary Tour. He is amazing, funny and so likeable. He is such an asset to the tour.

Our stay at the hotel was perfect. The room was fantastic, and the hotel staff were always helpful and friendly. We ate in both the restaurant and the bar, and food and service were excellent on both occasions. We will definitely book to stay at The Blue Haven again.
