Stayed at the Trident for 3 nights in a very clean contemporary room with a stunning view of the water. The breakfast selections were fantastic and the choice of hot breakfast options were quite tasty. This is a place we would happily return to for a stay in Kinsale.

This hotel was very recently renovated and therefore very clean and modern. But it is not a cosy hotel. The lobby is similar to an IBIS - cold and unwelcoming, and there are no facilities like a spa, good restaurant, gym etc. However, when in Kinsale, the likelihood is you want somewhere centrally located where you can walk to very...

Booked a few nights in this hotel from checking websites, they claimed to have baths with integrated showers in their bedrooms as my wife will only take a bath and does not like showers that was the factor that influenced our decision to stay here. Having stayed in Acton before felt the Trident answered our criteria. OMG were we disappointed...

We stay here every year, Executive room facing the harbour, great job done with the redecorating of the room, everything was clean and fresh. Breakfast is really good with both Continental and Irish cooked breakfast available, we will be back again soon.

Very friendly and efficient service: a spacious, quiet room with great views of the harbour. Excellent location - just a short stroll into Kinsale. I waited nearly 50 years to revisit the Trident since my father took me here as a boy - I wasn't disappointed!
