... back to Kinsale. It was the most beautiful walk along the harbor.
I have to mention that it did get up to 65 degrees yesterday in Kinsale and the skies were sunny and blue the perfect day In Ireland.
After we completed our walk we had some lunch in town and did some shopping. We had dinner at a top scale restaurant called Fishy Fishy. This restaurant was run by one of the top chefs in Ireland and he has his own TV show like Paula Deen.
Tomorrow we ...
Dan’s policy for the tour is that you don’t pay until the end and only if you think it’s worth 6 Euro. If not, you are free to leave whenever you like. There was about 20 in the group and no one left. Because of the questions asked, no two tours are totally the same, so I would be happy to take the tour again.
I met Diane at the café and we decided to do some gift shopping in town. The gift shops here have just about anything that you can think ...
... in Ireland and finally places for us to eat lunch! We thanked them and wished them well, and finally found Dino's, a traditional Fish and Chips restaraunt. It was so cute inside, set up somewhat like a boat! It was quiet and nice. Now, I don't like fish, so while a majority of our group got fish and chips, I got cajun chicken on a ciabatta bun :) It was SOO GOOD! It had some special sauce on it that made the sandwich really really good. By the end of the meal, I was SO FULL. So we ...
... uz od sesti. Lucka dorazila ve dve, takze opravdu nam moc casu nezbylo, nicmene podel more bylo krasne klenute pobrezi, takze by to za vetsi prochazku urcite stalo.
My jsme vsak zamirily do Kinsale. Krasne malebne primorske mestecko, kde narozdil od te plaze, prijemne prazilo slunicko. Takze ve finale se z kavy vyklubala zmrzlina. Ne, ze bych si stezovala, ale je fakt, ze italska proste neni:) Do ...
... just seems so *right* for me. I felt awful in one of my modules because, as fascinating as I found all the information, my head felt heavy and my eyes drooped back into my skull. I have been getting more than plenty of sleep, so I blame this sheer exhaustion on the weather. I sat there wondering why I felt so mopey, when it finally dawned on me that I feel this way at home whenever we experience our three-week rainy season, then my mood shoots right ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Blue Haven Hotel Kinsale
Perfect place in Kinsale
We stayed two nights at the Blue Haven Hotel in Kinsale. It is the perfect location in town. Just outside your door is the harbor, shops, pubs and restaurants. Nice rooms, nice touches and good service. The food in the restaurant and pub was very good. We wouldn't consider another place if we return to Kinsale. If you are a golfer and end up in Kinsale, drive out to Old Head of Kinsale golf club for a visit. Make sure you are not wearing jeans or have kids under 14. If so, they won't let you in. Easily the most scenic golf setting I have ever seen. More so than even Pebble Beach, it is on a promotory that juts out into the Atlantic and has sheer cliffs all around it.
The Blue Haven was an excellent hotel. The staff was kind and helpful - they provided us with great restaurant & sightseeing activities recommendations, and helped us out when there was a problem with our hot water. The rooms were spacious and beautifully decorated, and the bathrooms were lovely - very modern and incredibly clean. The breakfast was delicious, with a choice of several hot entrees - a nice change from the standard eggs and sausage in Ireland!
My husband and I stayed one night at the Blue Haven. It was absolutely wonderful. Our room was beautifully furnished and the location was perfect. The staff was very helpful and even gave us a complimentary upgrade on our room. The pub attached to the hotel was also great. We stayed in Ireland/UK for two weeks and this hotel was one of our favorites.
Blue Haven great place to stay
Just returned from Kinsale and think we made a good choice with the Blue Haven, the staff are friendly and very helpful. The food is excellent we dined in the Conservatory and the restaurant and were not disappointed, the flavour and presentation first class. The menu is varied and we were spoiled for choice. The bedroom was quite small, spotlessly clean and nice furnishings and large bed, a bit too large for the room. Having said this we were out all day and so really only slept in the room. It is in an fine position a few minutes walk from the harbour and all the fine restaurants in Kinsale. A thoroughly enjoyable break and should we go to Kinsale again wouldn't consider anywhere else to stay.
Friendly Staff with great rooms & great breakfast
Stayed here for one night...and choose the Blue Haven based on the reviews in Tripadvisor..thanks! We were not disappointed. The rooms were well finished, large bed, complimentary water, chocolate and tea/coffee making facility with cookies. Room had iron & ironing board with trouser press. The breakfast was fantastic! Hard to decide which warm breakfast to have...a tasty choice from regular Irish breakfast, to eggs benedict or fresh fruit pancakes. Also on offer - breakfast buffet with smoked salmon, choice of cheeses, cereals, fruit juices, etc. Hotel centrally located. Great town and great hotel!
We had a 3 night break at the Blue Haven and i must say i was impressed. The hotel itself was charming, a little bit of old worldy and a little bit of modern luxury. The room (One of the three top ones) was splendid, the bed was very comfortable, spa bath and other ammenities was very good.
We just returned from a two week vacation at the charming Blue Haven Hotel, Kinsale located in the South West of Ireland. The hotel is a wonderful combination of old world charm and contemorary luxury. We stayed in a beautiful room that was recently tastefully refurbished.
Blue Haven Was Wonderful
We recently returned from Ireland and two nights at the Blue Haven. We were a bit concerned after reading some of the negative reviews, but during our stay we found no basis at all for any of those comments. The room was comfy, the food fantastic and the people friendly and helpful. I don't know what anyone could have done to make our stay more pleasant.
I have just recently returned from the Blue Haven and was pleasantly surprised to see that the hotel had been taken over by new owners and it had been beautifully refurbished. The food was excellent and the staff were very friendly. I used to frequent the hotel years ago until it changed hands and had a similar experience to other people who wrote in. I m now glad to report that the Blue Haven seems back to the charming hotel it once was. Strongly recommended.
When I say "not as we expected", I mean this positively as, having read the other reviews posted on Trip Advisor, we thought we were going to the biggest dive in Ireland! However, after having spent a lovely relaxing long weekend at the Blue Haven (16-19 April 04), I can honestly say that we were not disappointed. In short, the staff were friendly and helpful, the room was welcoming, comfortable and extremely clean (excellent daily servicing), the food was good (especially the breakfast!) and the atmosphere in the bar was great (& it was packed full every night). It was a shame that the restaurant was closed due to refurbishment, but the conservatory area made a great "makeshift" restaurant environment. OK, so it's not a 5-star hotel & there may be a few little bits of "housekeeping" in terms of the decor (which incidentally it appears they are currently addressing), but we were in no way disappointed - it seems from the reviews that some people need to get real about their expectations. If you want the 5-star treatment/environment, then book a 5-star hotel!
