Outstanding Hotel. Thoroughly enjoyed our time there. We were there off-season (January) and experienced a well-run, beautiful hotel, lovely staff and a convenient location in which we could walk everywhere, yet weren't in a noisy area. Very generous breakfast and delicious food in the bar (the main dining room was closed, given the winter season). Highly recommend.

What an amazing break and hotel! The hotel and staff were just wonderful from start to finish. From the moment we arrived, we received the warmest welcome - check in was seamless and once we saw the room and view our jaws dropped. The hotel and rooms were incredibly clean and tidy. The bed has to be one of the comfiest beds I've ever slept in. And what a view from the bed to wake up to - picture attached. The food and staff in the bar, were incredible. Breakfast was fabulous the next day, the selection was amazing and having your breakfast while overlooking the sea made it even more enjoyable. The hotel location is excellent with walking distance into the town. Wonderfully run hotel and extremely well managed. Looking forward to our next stay :-)

My husband and I went to stay at the trident in Kinsale in December and honestly what a fabulous place. The staff were amazing and so attentive, the management were second to none. They were so friendly and helpful. The place is spotless and the service is beyond brilliant. The food is remarkable and the accommodation is brilliant. This has been the best place I have ever stayed in and the best service I have ever received. I have traveled to many places but this has set the bar. I can’t believe a place so amazing exists. I would recommend anyone to go to the Trident and get a feel of what true class service, staff and management are like. This is one of the best places I have ever been to. Do yourself a favour and go. I promise it’s worth it. Amazing!!!

Overall staying at the Trident was just disappointing as it is advertised as a 4 star luxury property but it is not or at least is no longer a luxury property. While they advertise parking it is extremely limited and likely you will be given a map to help you find street parking…. As well the rooms are not clean our blinds had debris all over them and the shower barely drained. The public space also shows signs of not just wear but neglect. If you do decide to stay and have an issue don’t bother with reception they blew me off. I did contact the GM who responded with a fairly standard apology and acknowledgement that the hotel is below standards.

We were in the Trident hotel for a small family birthday celebration. Everyone ordered their buttermilk chicken burger and everyone was more than satisfied, they were delicious. The staff were very pleasant and they offered a wide range of deserts on their menu. Would highly recommend for a family or couples night.

We had a great night in the Trident. The room was beautiful, a view of the bay, very big bed, lovely bathroom with bath and shower. Very clean. Coffee and tea machine and water. The staff were very friendly and helpful. When we asked for cocktails that weren’t on the menu the waitress brought the cocktail waiter over to us and he had no problem making them up. He was very knowledgeable and friendly. We had dinner out but breakfast staff were just as helpful and friendly. The hotel is lovely but the staff make it special.

Just home from yet another fabulous stay at the Trident Hotel. Jennifer at reception is just wonderful, so friendly and helpful. Bar staff very friendly and service 10/10. Please don't ever take the open prawn sandwich off the menu! It's just divine. Looking forward to returning soon.
