This hotel is big enough for bus tours, so there will be a bus tour there every day. Don’t try to eat breakfast at 8 AM---sleep in! The rooms face the harbor and are quiet, with black out curtains. There is good storage and the rooms are large for a European hotel. Room 210 had both tub and shower, and...

Trident was recently renovated, and our room was very comfortable with an awesome view of the harbor. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast each day was outstanding. I hope to get back to Kinsale and will stay here again!

I recently stayed at the Trident with my husband for two nights while we attended a wedding in nearby Ballinacurra. The hotel facilitated our request for an early check in which was greatly appreciated. The two nights were extremely comfortable with stunning views of the harbour. Would certainly recommend this place. Wasn't expecting it to be so nice for the...

I was really impressed with my stay here. Beautiful views from the bedroom but after all that's just location. The hotel itself is what's important as any place can have views and be awful. This hotel certainly isn't awful it's beautiful. The rooms were spotlessly clean and the staff were really friendly. The staff just couldn't do enough for us....
