Stayed here through "exploring Ireland" and we were not impressed. Our room was not exactly a "sea view" in that it faced the parking lot and you could see the harbor. There is no air conditioning and the windows have no screens. Room was a little tired and sparsely decorated. We asked for a better view and were told they... More

Kinsale was our first stop on our honeymoon throughout Ireland and the Trident Hotel was a perfect start! We stayed one night and our room was awesome. They upgraded us to a suite overlooking the harbor and the view was lovely. The staff was so kind and friendly. We loved our stay and would definitely come back again. Thanks!

All the rooms have absolutely breathtaking views of the harbor and wall to wall windows. The beds were very comfortable and the bathroom and bedroom spacious. The property is within a few minutes walk of Kinsale's main shopping area, restaurants, and pubs. My only complaints are the breakfast (the food was bland and the pastries stale) and wifi (it was...

We stayed for two nights in the Harbour Suite and our relatives stayed in one of the twin rooms. The view from both was exquisite. The hotel is friendly, very clean and very welcoming. I would highly recommend the Trident - we will definitely be coming back. Thanks to all for a great stay.

My husband and I stayed here for one night while driving across Ireland. We loved the hotel. From check in, to the view of the harbor, to drinks at the tavern and the best part was breakfast! From our room we could see seals in the harbor area. It was so wonderful to spot them! The view and the location... More

The Trident Hotel had already been reviewed in the past with comments similar to what I am about to say. If the view is important, then this is certainly one of the best choices in Kinsale. The location of the hotel could not be better. Most or all of the rooms in the hotel overlook the water, and the hotel... More

My husband and I stayed one night here on our way to Killarney. We had a partial view of the harbor which was nice. The room itself was average, and it didn't feel as clean as other hotel stays we experienced in Ireland, however the restroom was very clean, modern and refreshing. The location is absolutely excellent and the property... More

First, we loved being in Kinsale so this hotel was just part of our great experience with the city. Our room was huge with a beautiful view of the harbor. We also had a huge bathroom with full sized tub. The shower stall was big, not the tube kind that is so small you can't bend over. And, there was... More
