What an experience after being in France and the U.K. Peace, manners, value for money, breakfast, music in the lounge, centre of all in Kinsale. Room too small, that's all.!

Lovely atmosphere, great staff and a wide choice of food. We picked the tapas bar and it was excellent. After the meal, you can go sit and relax...

Without doubt the nicest hotel we have ever stayed in . We re not world travellers but everything about this place is class. The receptionist Madeleine could not be nicer and the other staff are super. Kinsale is so quaint ,you never want to leave and the blue haven is just perfect.

Was disappointed with the condition of the rooms and the hallways in this hotel.

There was no convenient parking nor any valet parking at this hotel. Front desk staff was not friendly....

Had a lovely dinner in the Restaurant. Scallop asparagus and sticky toffee pudding. Sublime. It was a little pricey and not all that filling but extremely tasty. Each flavour was amazing. I would recommend trying this restaurant.

Genuinely welcoming staff. Comfortable bars and public areas. A heating problem in the bedroom was swiftly responded to with a room transfer. Great location in the centre of Kinsale. Quality breakfast.
