We came here for a double 50th birthday celebration with about 50 guests. There was a two course menu on offer, I had soup and a fish dish. Both were lovely. The staff were very patient and attentive, as the group took a while to sit down in order for the meal to commence. All in all a very well... More

The reply of the Trident to my previous review seemed so reasonable.... stating they offered an alternative room..... What total fabrication thistle is from someone who is heavily involved in promoting tourism in Kinsale. The reality is I made a call to reception from my room, with my bags unpacked, and was offered no alternative, as has been stated by... More

Beautiful sea town. Nice walk to local restaurant. Decent and comfortable hotel. Clean and good service. Breakfast was wonderful. Would stay again. No hairdryer in room which was surprising.

The hotel was located on the harbor, just a few minutes from the bars and restaurants. The staff were really nice, and the breakfast was delicious! We only stayed one night, but we enjoyed the comfort and convenience of the hotel!

The harbor views from our room were spectacular! The front desk staff was most helpful and pleasant providing us with information and immediate assistance. We enjoyed the traditional Irish breakfast choices each morning. We had dinner in the tavern two evenings during our stay. The food was delicious, the staff was very friendly, and the service was great. We would... More

Special Thx to Fidelma and all the staff. Fabulous room with my favourite view in the world....Looking out across the harbour. Fabulous breakfast buffet and dinner in the Restaurant. Right in the centre of the town but so quiet at night time. Perfect location for a truly relaxing break. Very comfortable bed and pillows....very important! When I was a young... More
