Stayed at the Trident in Sept 20016. Booked a water view room. Excellent. Room was large, had a great view. Breakfast was included and wonderful! The location was great. Not right in town so quiet but within walking distance of Kinsale. Included access to spa, gym and pool at a hotel down the street. Highly recommend.

This is the second trip we have stayed at this hotel. The location is right on the bay and, therefore, a room at the front side of the hotel is a must for a picture-perfect view. The rooms are large, clean and well appointed, and the staff was friendly and helpful. Parking could be a problem for late arrivals. Hotel... More

Trident Kinsale was superb. Great location, harbour and scenic views, good food, engaging and helpful staff. The outlook from the room was great and the standard service first class. Lots of places to go nearby and Kinsale is a gem. Thanks to all, we will be back.

Stayed for one night in August 2016. Couldn't have picked a better place to stay. Hotel is ideally situated looking over the bay. The hotel is an interesting mix of styles with a wonderful relaxing bar where you can get excellent food and sit taking in the breathtaking views. The room we had was 221 which is at the far...

We stayed here as a family for a few nights in August. The staff were very friendly and check-in and out was quick and easy. The hotel is right on the water and the views are fantastic (see the photo of the ship that came in and spend a day unloading). The pop-up bar outside is a great place to... More

We stayed here for two nights on our recent trip to Ireland. Everything was fine and it was very convenient. Has a little sattelite tavern overlooking the harbor which was nice. The breakfast served each morning was great. Rooms were of nice size but they did not have safes so we stored our valuables at the front desk. It is... More

Myself and my husband spent a couple of days at the Trident at the end of August, thanks to our daughter Michelle. We had a fabulous time. The room was amazing with a beautiful view of the harbour. Food was excellent and staff were fantastic. Would have loved to have stayed longer. Kinsale is a beautiful town and the walk... More
