The room was fine, the breakfast room was very average, the hotel doesn't have any "atmosphere" but it's well located and clean and very affordable. We were there for one night (which was enough). We were not impressed with the hotel but we appreciated that it served its purpose - a good place to sleep and to serve as a... More

Recently my wife I spend four days in the Trident and to be honest it was brilliant. This is a not a new hotel but in it has character and charm. The views from the windows are wonderful, one could easily spend hours watching the bay etc. The staff are excellent, friendly, knowledgeable, curious and helpful. A lovely atmosphere in... More

Dear Paschal, Thank you for your very positive review of your recent stay with your wife in the Trident Hotel. We are very lucky to be located overlooking the harbour with the added advantage, as you mention, of having the character and charm of a 17th century building with more modern bedroom blocks and all within an easy walk of...

Enjoyed a lovely night's stay here and was very happily surprised at the high standard and level of quality here. We had a beautiful big room with a magnificent view of the marina below. It's a massive place but thankfully it doesn't suffer with that apathetic corporate mindset that so many other large hotels seem to have. There are ample... More

Gerard Grey knows the way to a ladies heart is to recommend that her hubby buys her a fine whiskey... at €20 a nip you'd hope and she did enjoy it. The open prawn sandwich and fried goat cheese - local specialty very good and very reasonable. Kinsale is postcard picturesque as well

Dear Steilicious, Thank you for posting the review of your recent visit to the Wharf Tavern in the Trident Hotel. Ger Grey knows his stuff all right! Midleton Very Rare is an exceptional whiskey and as it's name suggests is not that widely available but is distilled in Midleton which is about 40 minutes drive from Kinsale! I am delighted... More

We were here with a tour group and got the worst view available of the front parking lot. The front staff did not accommodate us with a room move or improvement! Rooms are small, but clean.

I visited this hotel with my girlfriend for a midweek trip away. The hotel was clean and in a great position on the waterfront in Kinsale. Our room was brilliant with great views of the harbour.
