My hubby and I just returned to the UK from an Ireland family convergence. We decided before the craziness started to fly into Cork and spend a few days at the Trident Hotel alone. It was an easy drive from the Cork airport to Kinsale Bay, which is a beautiful seaside town. Very quaint. There are lots of cute shops and restaurants, and a trip to the fort on the other side of the Bay is well worth the effort.
The Trident was nice but a little dated. It was clean, the staff was okay, the bar was great for nightcaps...so overall, I might recommend it. Our heater was not working so I was quite cold. Even after we told the staff it still never got warm enough in the room for me to sleep without two sweatshirts. I'm not sure if I would go back there again. There was another hotel that a friend recommended that we would try next before returning to the Trident.
Location-wise though...it can't be beat. It has the best location in Kinsale for a seaside view.
