The Blue Haven Hotel is built on the site of the Old Fish Market and Meat Market in the town dating back to 1784. Until the late eighteenth century the street the hotel is located on Pearse Street was an open waterway. This was covered over at the end of the 18th century to create the current street and the buildings that now form the hotel and surrounding wall date from this time.

Over 200 years later, Blue Haven now produces award winning delicious gourmet food on the very site which was such a pivotal part of Kinsale fishing heritage. Right at the start of the Wild Atlantic Way, an inspirational journey starting at The Blue Haven.
