Within walking distance of downtown with a beautiful view of the Harbor. It's a quiet location and huge breakfast buffet. There were quite a few tour buses there, but the hotel is large enough to absorb lots of people.

Stayed for 1 night in September 2014. Location is pretty on the harbor. Front desk reception was lukewarm. Room was quite cold and sterile, horrible lighting in bathroom. Scratchiest linens on bed I have ever experienced. Breakfast was adequate; servers seemed a little stressed. Wouldn't go out of my way to stay here again.

We stayed 4 nights at the Trident Hotel in Kinsale to celebrate a wedding anniversary during a 9 day visit from the US.

We stayed two nights as part of a tour. Room was spacious and clean. The location is right on the harbor and walking distance to shops and restaurants. The weather was perfect while we were there. The hotel restaurant was also very good and the pub.

The hotel is well placed in the coastal town of Kinsale. It's situated on the quay and has excellent views over the harbour. The rooms were clean and adequately serviced. Food in the restaurant was of a good standard and, as you can imagine, relies heavily on locally sourced sea food. The reasonable pricing makes up for the lack of... More

We got married at the Trident last month, we couldn't have asked for better service. All of the guests raved about the food and the kindness of the staff. They were so helpful planning our big day and wonderful to deal with throughout our whole experience. I couldn't recommend the hotel highly enough! Niamh and Karl
