A fresh, vibrant and exciting bar in the heart of Kinsale with great indoor and outdoor seating areas, superb food, finest wines, spirits, cocktails and a host of craft beers.

Hamlets has stylish indoor areas and private party area ‘ the Keg Room’’ and unique fully heated outdoor areas such as our front deck, our newly refurbished secret garden with outdoor stove, Tikki Hut and our very own classic boat. Yes a boat! We took a 1930 classic wooden sailing boat and turned into an area you can sit around and have a gin on the boat!
It's a fantastic venue for private parties, birthdays, after wedding BBQs, corporate nights or a drink with friends.

Great food served daily from 12 midday, with an interesting menu and pizzas a specialty. Also exciting daily lunch specials, mouth watering desserts and sharing platters. Our chefs take pride in delivering the very best food with fantastic offerings to suit all taste buds.

Hamlets is open 7 days a week and has live music and the best of DJ's throughout. We also have regular events including, craft beer festivals, cocktail parties and lots more!
