4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

Our stay here was very pleasant although we had such a long walk to our room. The hotel wasn't very busy so I'm not sure why we were located at the extremity of the hotel. The view over the boat harbour was beautiful and the room was cosy and modern with a very nice bathroom although it lacked a fridge... More

We stayed for a weekend for our wedding anniversary. The hotel is in a lovely setting - right at the harbour overlooking the sea with the fishing boats and yachts coming and going. The rooms are spacious with huge windows and all seem to have sea views. The staff were helpful giving us leaflets and maps on the local area.... More

Not happy. Today at 1:34 PM Dissatisfaction and poor management We stayed for two nights in the Trident on 20th January 2015. It was off season but the service should still be that of a 4 star hotel standard. When we arrived we had lunch; there only chips or mash potatoes available. The restaurant was closed so we had to...

We stayed here on January 20th for 2 nights. Kinsale is a beautiful quaint fishing village. It was one of the quietest season and the hotel was not busy. We stayed in a room overlooking the carpark and onto the river. Such a beautiful view. Hotel location is brilliant. The food though is not of a 4 star standard, steak... More

I have just returned from a most enjoyable stay in this wonderful hotel. The location is superb ,right on waters edge.Having stayed in both Actons and The Blue Haven over the years I found the Trident to be far superior. From the moment you enter you are greeted by a lovely local girl with a lovely Cork accent .She informed... More

There's nothing really wrong with the Trident. The rooms are clean with a loverly view of the harbour however it lacked an ooh ahhh moment by having a conference centre feel. The complimentary breakfast was poor with cold toast and porridge and The lift didn't work so I had to carry my suitcase down 2 flights of stairs. It relies... More

Dear Jacqui T, Thank you for reviewing you recent stay with us in the Trident Hotel. I am sorry that you got cold toast and porridge and that you felt that the breakfast was poor - this area is normally a strong point so this surprises and disappoints me. We do take the opportunity of the quieter periods to do... More

My husband and I stayed in the Trident 16/17th September, 2014. We originally booked an executive room through irelandhotels.com. I later received a phone call from a staff member of the hotel changing our choice of room to a "Classic Suite". We were very disappointed with the room we were given. It was shabby; old beds, chipped furniture, plastic shower... More

The hotel is at the end of the town and a very convenient base for spending a few days in Kinsale and the surrounding area, as we got a special deal on the booking, at check in we asked if any chance for an upgrade and the staff seemed a little dismissive explaining that we had already got a deal,...

Had a reasonably pleasant 4 night stay here recently. Stayed in an executive room. Hotel has all the attributes to achieve a consistently high ranking, but a few easily rectifiable things let it down badly. On the positive side, it's in a great location, room had great views of Kinsale harbour, hotel staff very helpful staff, a friendly pleasant bar,... More
