Stayed here last Saturday for one night with my mother and two sisters. A regular weekend getaway for sisters and Mum; a different spot every time. We got connecting rooms facing the harbour. Large (almost) floor to ceiling windows. Picture view of the seafront, trawlers, yachts and sea. Rooms were clean; beds comfortable and a good shower. It's a shame... More

Great location! Great staff, all very pleasant and hard working but always carried a smile. Room was very big and spacious with a lovely view of the harbour. Whilst we were having dinner overlooking the sea a seal popped up his head and said hello from the water. A great experience and a great talking point of how we will... More

I stayed at the Trident sharing a room with my mother and we both loved the facility, the location, and the Irish Coffees at the bar once we were back from shopping downtown. Boats dock just outside your window so there's the lovely clanging and clattering of ropes and pulleys in the ever present breeze. I would love to go... More

Stayed for 3 nights recently, nice room, big, clean bathroom, good sea view & decent breakfast. Staff were generally very nice although the person at the reception desk when we checked in was a tad on the frosty side. In addition she did not advise us that this is a sister hotel of Actons & that we could use the... More

We stayed one night at the Trident for a friend's wedding over the summer. We were delighted to be given a corner room - the views were amazing. We looked over the picturesque harbor on one side and up into the countryside on the other.

Reasonably priced, within walking distance to downtown area. Hint: get a room with the view of the harbor. Nice bar, Didn't eat in restaurant but seemed to be crowded at dinner time. Kinsale is a town that you would want to stay more than one night.

I picked this hotel for Its panoramic views and good reviews. As we have a busy life when we return to the UK, we booked a Junior Suite. We are not at all disappointed with our room and luxurious king sized bed and humongous bathroom. Everything is very clean. We ate in the hotel restaurant on New Years Eve. Food... More
