Welcoming and Friendly - ten out of ten.
Service - Ten out of ten.
Facilities - excellent - ten out of ten.
As a disabled person with a small family, we found the staff very helpful. from the desk, to the restaurant and bar.
The food is very good and beats a lot of expensive 'place to eat' in Kinsale. Excellent oysters in the bar. Top quality in the restaurant and so much food for breakfast, you probably won't need lunch! The bedroom is great , heating just right - a real treat on a wet day to come back to.
After my little boy dropped his electronic gizmo in the sea staff called diver groups to see if they could solve the problem. In other words the desk went out of their way to help - ~Excellent

My partner and I had a very pleasant stay in the Trident Hotel. The staff were very pleasant and at breakfast they did go out of there way to accomadate me as I am gluten intollerant. The only fault is the bedrooms are on the small size but other than that we had a lovely stay and Kinsale is a beautiful place. Thank you

Room Tip: All the rooms have a good view

Dear Martina,

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us over the October Bank Holiday weekend.

I am pleased that you enjoyed your stay even if you felt that your room was a little bit small. When you return, which I hope you will soon, maybe an Executive room might be a more suitable choice which would be a larger room, harbour facing and with a large marble bathroom with separate bath and shower. Our executive rooms also have air conditioning.

We look forward to welcoming you back soon.

Kind regards,

Hal McElroy
Managing Director

Spent two nights at the Trident in September and found it to be a great choice for visiting Kinsale and area. The hotel is modern and appears to cater to groups - there were two bus tours when we were there. A short walk from town where you have lots of restaurant to choose from.

Our room was large and bright with a great view of the harbor. Breakfast was substantial and served in a dining room that also offered a view of the water. Had dinner one night in the pub which was very busy but well-managed by the staff.
