We spent a night there and the hotel was clean, quiet modern, the staff was professional and friendly. Very good location and was lovely to eat in front of the sea. The bed was huge, same as the shower with a view on the port (we saw a seal from the bedroom). Definitely would recommend!

Kinsale town was quite with most diners closed, but we didn't miss it as the service, food and cheerful banter with Trident staff made up for it. We had mussels in a wine and cream sauce (excellent), Fish and Chips,Fish bake -( well you gotta eat fish in Kinsale), all of it was excellent and washed down with a good... More

Booked into the Trident at lunch time and then had lunch, which consisted of fish which was covered in batter. After removing the batter, there was very little fish to be seen. There was only a choice of mash potatoes or chips. Dinner was only served in the bar, as the restaurant was closed. Again, mash potatoes or chips only.... More

On three counts, food service and view. Suited us very well no complaints good pricing too and a visit from the manager to enquire if we'd enjoyed out visit was the icing on the cake, felt very special.

Had a great lunch here. The homemade breaded goujons were just the right size portion washed down with a pint of rebel red. The waitress was nice and welcoming and the rest of the menu looked enticing. It also made us laugh when asking for the bill we got a jug of milk but that didn't take away from the... More

I went here for a Sunday carvery. We arrived around 1pm not late by any standards. The place was busy but there was plenty of free seats. It would help if they had a simple blackboard menu "Welcome to the Trident, today's Carvery specials are blah blah, please take a seat and we will be pleased to welcome you and... More

Located right on the harbour, this place has great views and is a good place to meet. Parking is good which can be an issue in Kinsale. Lively bar downstairs with good bar food and lots of atmosphere. Sunday lunch has a good buffet. Friendly staff make it memorable and a good range of drinks and local beers. Late night... More
