My partner and I stayed at this Hotel as a romantic getaway however we were slightly disappointed when we arrived. The room was interconnecting to another room beside us, which had a loud number of males who took great delight in knocking on our interconnecting door and attempting to open it in the middle of the night. The room itself... More

We stayed here for a 4 day weekend and attended our friends wedding in December ( at a different hotel). Our bedroom had the most amazing panoramic views across the harbour towards the sea and also towards the town. We slept with all the curtains open so that we could watch the stars and the sunrise! Stunning ! Everything about... More

Unfortunately I stayed here in early December. My rooms had huge windows overlooking the harbour, which would have been fantastic if it wasn't raining. The room itself was large and very comfortable and clean, with a good spacious bathroom. Breakfast was served on the first flour again with great views over the harbour. Kinsale itself is a lovely harbour town.... More

If you have any interest in good food and drink, then Kinsale is the place for you. What a town and no better place to stay when you are there than the Trident. It's perfectly located on the water's edge which gives stunning views from most rooms and the dining room and it's only a short stroll from all the... More

The room was large and well appointed with a lovely bathroom with good shower. Breakfast was served in Pier One restaurant on the first floor with beautiful views of the boats in the harbour.

This place was the best of plenty hotel stays in 2014, I would recommend their family rooms. The staff was awesome, very warm and helpful and the location of the hotel is great for a jog along the bridge, easy drive to the Forts and lovely small shops around!

A group of us had a meal in the Wharf Tavern which is the bar of the Trident Hotel. The food was outstanding and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The price was good too. I would happily recommend it as a place to eat in Kinsale.

Well located and an easy walk into town along the harbour road. Parking is good which can be an issue in Kinsale even at accommodation properties. All of the rooms appear to have good views and are sizeable enough. The rooms are well appointed with good sized bathrooms that appear to be recently decorated /refurbished. In all very comfortable.
