The hotel is well placed in the coastal town of Kinsale. It's situated on the quay and has excellent views over the harbour. The rooms were clean and adequately serviced. Food in the restaurant was of a good standard and, as you can imagine, relies heavily on locally sourced sea food. The reasonable pricing makes up for the lack of... More

We got married at the Trident last month, we couldn't have asked for better service. All of the guests raved about the food and the kindness of the staff. They were so helpful planning our big day and wonderful to deal with throughout our whole experience. I couldn't recommend the hotel highly enough! Niamh and Karl

When I checked into mine, there was a very strange smell which the staff said they would be able to rectify within the hour. An hour later, the room smelled the same so they moved me... More

Both my husband and I stayed at the Trident for one night last weekend. We were upgraded from a standard room to a deluxe. The room was very basic so I am sure the standard room would have been even more basic than what we had. The view was lovely but the room was very tired and in need of... More
