Visited the Trident for food and drinks (and for the hubby to watch the match). The wine was lovely, the staff were friendly and our meal was delicious. I had a fish bake which was gorgeous and served with chunky root veg and mash. Also had a lovely apple pie which was bursting with apples, very impressed! My husband had... More

I was greeted by a very forthcoming receptionist who organised an upgrade for us for €30. The room had a lovely view overlooking the water. The bed appears to be two double/queen size pushed together. The point where they meet is annoying! The television channels are very limited in comparison to other hotels. I had nothing to watch when I... More

Stayed here over the Easter bank holiday with friends and I was really impressed with the hotel. The location is second to none. Beautiful views over the harbour and a short walk from the centre of town. The staff were brilliant too. We had a large group to check in and it was done very quickly. The restaurant is lovely...

I spent a week in the Trident Hotel Kinsale with a group and had a very relaxing and enjoyable time. The room I stayed was clean and comfortable with a nice view of Kinsale Harbour. We dined in the restaurant every evening and the food was very good. My only complaints are that the residents bar beside the Restaurant seemed... More

The gym in Acton's hotel (used also by Trident residants) is great! The Trident is nice, very good breakfast, the rooms are fine, not spottless though. Location is fantastic. The hospitality is very warm.

I stayed in Kinsale with a group on March 30th. The rooms were very nice and we all views of the water. I ate at the Wharf Tavern and the food was quite good. My cousin and I ordered Irish Coffee at the Wharf but we both agreed that no whiskey was put in the glass. We did mention this... More

I shouldn't do this for I should keep the Trident a secret for only myself to enjoy but it would not be fair to other travelers! If I were in the hotel/hospitality business and knew about the Trident, I would send all my new staff there for training and my current staff for refresher training. From the time you walk... More

Took a quick hop to Kinsale and booked a junior suite at the Trident. Fantastic view from 313 as it is almost in the harbour. Sadly it rained non stop while we were there so was glad of the view. Main restaurant was closed so we ate in the room and everything was very acceptable with prompt and pleasant service.
