We stayed two nights at the Trident Hotel in Kinsale. It is a relaxing place with good food and a large, pleasant bar with additional seating there, beyond the restaurant. The staff is friendly and accommodating: my slacks were soaked after a rainy walking tour of the city and the staff agreed to hang them in the boiler room so... More

We stayed for one night as we were attending a wedding function. We had a lovely room which had an excellent view of the harbour. A short walk and you are in the centre of the town. Our room which was a suite was spotlessly clean with a very comfortable bed and a very large modern bathroom. Toiletries and lovely... More

This was a very nice hotel. It overlooks the harbour in Kinsale. There were nice walks along the harbour from the hotel and great views from the hotel. Service in the restaurant was excellent and the manager of the hotel was visible checking in on guests. Rooms were spacious and comfortable. Free parking in their lot.

Staff were friendly but the reception is cold feeling and dated. The room, though the view lovely, needs to be redecorated and updated. I would have expected more for 150 euro for the night. Location of the hotel is handy. The bar is fine, the outside area has no view.

Wonderful accommodations with lovely view of the harbor. Although the beds were a bit hard, we all had restful sleep. The hotel is close to shops, restaurants and points of interest. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful! Food and beverages were plentiful and delicious. Hope to return again🍀.
