My husband and I happened upon Hamlets on a quick stop through Kinsale. We had a blast. We didn't eat so I can't comment on the food, but we snagged a seat at the boat and enjoyed a few drinks while a live music act...More

Found by accident while out strolling. Great food and extremely helpful staff (a tricky 11 year old to be pleased). A little pricey but exceptional food and service.

In the 'Gourmet Capital of Ireland' at 3pm, we had little choice for a meal as the main Restaurants don't open until 6ish. The sun was shining as we glanced at the Menu and thought 'what can go wrong'? The service was indifferent. We got...More

A fresh and exciting bar in the heart of Kinsale with great indoor and outdoor seating areas, superb food, finest wines, spirits, cocktails and a host of craft beers. Hamlets has stylish indoor areas and private party area ‘ the Keg Room’’ and unique fully heated outdoor areas such as our newly refurbished Orchard Thieves Front Garden and Secret Garden with outdoor stove, Tikki Hut and our very own classic boat. Yes a boat! We took a 1930 classic wooden sailing boat and turned into an area you can sit around and enjoy! It's a fantastic venue for private parties, birthdays, after wedding BBQs, corporate nights or a drink with friends. Great food served daily from 12 midday, with an interesting menu and pizzas a specialty. Also exciting daily lunch specials, mouth watering desserts and sharing platters. Our chefs take pride in delivering the very best food with fantastic offerings to suit all taste buds. Hamlets is open 7 days a week and has live music and the best of DJ's throughout.
