Stayed here only one night for a quick getaway from Dublin to show the area to o/s visiter. First impression was that location was very central - important for two ladies. We felt very safe walking around the town, had a drink at Ned Kelly's, chatted with one of the friendly locals there, then a two minute walk to the hotel. The receptionist, Madeleine, is one of the hotel's greatest assets. Every time we walked past reception, she was helping people with useful information, either on the phone or in person. Similarly with us. She went out of her way to find answers to questions we had with regard to other places we were visiting after we left Kinsale. Also gave us room upgrades which was appreciated. A large number of dining options around, but after checking them all out, we decided to eat at the hotel's bistro, a choice we were very happy with. Food and service were excellent, then we could move in to the bar next door and listen to some live music until time to retire. Parking is a 5 min walk but that didn't bother us. We were both very happy with our stay at Blue Haven, and will stay again when I return to the area with my husband.
