Blue Haven

Blue Haven Review

A restaurant, bar, and small hotel occupy this attractive, yellow-stucco, blue-trim town house, with its landmark wall clock and welcoming flags. At this popular spot for casual dining you can sit near the open fire, outside on the patio, in a booth in the buzzing bistro section, or at a quieter table in the restaurant. The menu, a well-judged mix of old favorites, includes caesar salad, sirloin steak, Thai red curry of vegetables with fragrant rice, and beer-battered fish and chips. The bar has live music nightly from May to September, and on Saturdays year-round. This is a good place to meet the locals, who can be hard to find in cosmopolitan Kinsale, and it's fun place to stay, if you don't mind smallish rooms and the possibility of late-night noise.
