5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We recently booked a weekend to celebrate my parents' 60th anniversary. We booked three rooms, all having the beautiful view of the harbour. Although my parents have always lived in Cork, and we all visit Kinsale frequently, it was wonderful to spend time there as "tourists" for a change. We certainly picked the best place to stay. Huge picture windows,... More

First, Kinsale is a great little town that appears to get plenty of locals and tourists - check it out. Kind of the foodie center as well. The Trident offers a great location, nice view of the harbor, large rooms, on site pub, b'fast buffet...all of which is reviewed previously. The hotel is a five mins walk along the harbor... More

Dear jhmvis, Thank you for your review of your recent stay with us in the Trident Hotel. I am sorry that you found the service to be a bit aloof. I was disappointed to read that that was your impression. With regards to our location, you are quite correct Acton's (our sister hotel) is a little closer to the town... More

wonderful location right on the harbour but not worth it unless you get an executive room. Standard rooms with partial views are disappointing with more view of the parking lot than of the harbour. Also the rooms are a long walk down various corridors. Surprising also that a 4* hotel does not have lockers in the room.

This modern, very clean, comfortable! Our room had both a shower stall and a bathtub. We loved the view of the boats in the harbor. The staff is very friendly. The tub is so deep with such a high wall, a short person would have difficulty getting in and out. Also the lavatory is quite high. We will return.

Rooms are nicely decorated, very quiet and very clean however certain areas within the bedroom require a lick of paint and the carpet between connecting room doors were not properly fastened. But nonetheless the personnel were absolutely wonderful. Food at the tavern and at breakfast were great, large choice for kids. This is definitely a children and family friendly establishment....

This visit was for my in law's 60th wedding anniversary. We arrived late (had advised that we would be) but were expected. Like the selection of Irish Whiskey to help get over the journey served by a friendly barman and night porter.

Spent 3 nights in the hotel and can't fault the service. Location was great and staff were very friendly. Great little bar on the waterfront. Breakfast was very good. It is an old hotel but full of character.

Nice hotel. The walls between the rooms are thin & the bathroom fan runs constantly, so bring earplugs if you want a good night sleep. I could hear the guest next door snoring. Ask for a water view. It's beautiful at sunrise. Parking is tight. I would suggest leaving you car there until you check out. There's plenty of easy... More
