Blue Haven Hotel, Ireland

This cosy and petite four-star boutique hotel – with only sixteen exclusive rooms – is based in historic Kinsale, and is part of the Blue Haven Collection. Originally a medieval fishing port, Kinsale is now known as the Gourmet Capital of Ireland – a title this locale takes very seriously. Boasting an amazing array of places to eat and drink on-site – including a Fish Market Bistro and bar, where guests can enjoy whiskey and craft beer tasting boards – there are plenty of ways to treat your taste buds while under its historic roof.
