What people say about their stay


Exceptional hospitality
A massive thank you to all the team in the Trident for an incredible stay! Kelvin, in particular, is a fantastic host and the general manager is extremely warm and attentive, ensuring all of his guests have the best possible stay. You won’t be disappointed with the welcome!

Excellent all round
From when we arrived to when we left, staff and service was excellent. Adhered to all covid regulations but still a very relaxed atmosphere. Location on water and central location. Breakfast very good. Also room service was prompt and nothing was too much trouble. Would recommend suites, expensive but definitely worth it. Rooms 314 and 316 have balconies which are lovely to use in the fine weather we had. Will return.

A Real Jewel
We stayed in the Trident for three days including the night of the recent storm. The staff were just superb and made the stay feel like a home from home. The room we stayed was incredible with views over the sea. The food was marvellous and we have booked our next visit for 2021.

Fabulous rooms and exceptional staff
Just spent two days in one of the suites in this terrific hotel Suite was spacious and spotlessly clean with an amazing balcony overlooking the harbourWe had lunch when we arrived in the outdoor restaurant overlooking the harbour We had fish and chips which were delicious .we met the wonderful Galvin. a 21 year old junior manager who looked after our need. He really is a star we have met managers in 5 star hotels who would not hold a candle to him both for his personality and can do attitude. I hope management treasure him Tracey on reception was also very friendly and welcoming on arrival as was the general manager who was constantly going around tables asking guests if they were happy
Breakfast served in the room was sublime eggs benedict and great granola all served on your spacious sun drenched terrace overlooking the marina ,truly a piece of heaven
We have left intending to return before the end of the season Well done and continued success to all at the Trident

Fantastic stay and fantastic service!!
This hotel is in a stunning location and we were very lucky to have a room looking out onto the water. The highlight of our stay had to be dealing with one of your fantastic staff members Conor! He did many a room service trip as we had dinner in town and due to the current situation had to order drinks to the room. He was a delight to deal with and all four of us had great things to say about his positive attitude and pleasant manner, a real attribute to your hotel!!

Lovely hotel, Excellent location
Spent an evening here last week while visiting the area. The hotel is in an excellent location with fabulous views over the harbour. It was great was so nice to sit out on the deck in the sun and enjoy a drink with my partner whilst watching all the action in this busy little harbour. The room was spotless and came with exceptional views. The hotel restaurant was perfect and out breakfast the following morning was great - cooked to order, with a great selection and choice of two courses. The perfect start to a day!
Would highly recommend the Trident and will return again! Thanks to all the team

A great hotel that enriches the visit to a wonderful place

Kinsale and this area of Ireland is a wonderful place to visit. The quality of the service and engagement of all the staff in the Trident Hotel in making our stay a memorable experience was excellent. The room was spacious and the furnishings and facilities to the highest standard, V comfortable bed, good connections, great food, air conditioning, spacious bath and shower room with a wonderful view of the Harbour. Plenty of great places to walk to nearby. Revisit? - We certainly will.




We stayed at the Trident for a two night break in lovely Kinsale. The hotel has undergone a complete refurbishment and everything about it is fabulous.We stayed in two rooms on the first floor-one a suite and an executive room. The suite is situated over the sea and has windows on three sides and a very large balcony-superb decor and space. Executive room was lovely-sea facing and stylish decor-luxurious bedding in both rooms.Housekeeping top notch. Service is outstanding-lunch in the bar was very good as is breakfast. A real treat to stay in this establishment which is really good value and thank you to Tracey(reception) for being super helpful with our booking. A definite new favorite hotel.

Our little Gem 

Having stayed at the Trident on a couple of occasions, this was our third visit and most certainly won't be our last! From the warm welcome from all of the staff in all areas of the hotel,to the fabulous location and spectacular views.This hotel has it all!Decided to stay in a suite on this occasion and having stayed in a couple of five star hotels in the previous few months this would rival both,and was without doubt our Favourite!The hotel is immaculately clean in all areas and it is very seldom that a hotel maintains this standard throughout.Dined in the Wharf tavern the first evening and the food was absolutely Superb,so good that we returned the second evening and did not feel the need to venture into Kinsale town,to dine in some of the very well known eateries.Our stay from beginning to end was faultless and this had so much to do with the friendly,welcoming staff as much as the hotel.Well done a very rare find!A special mention to Trish who took the time out of her busy morning to talk to us about a family get together,and did so with such friendliness and professionalism.The management should be so proud of the team,such a rare find!Looking forward to our next visit already!!!

An Excellent Hotel in all Respects

This hotel is extremely well appointed, the room was very comfortable and the view from our window over the estuary was lovely. Breakfasts were brilliant, looking out on the harbour we watched seals and otters feeding. Car parking was right on the grounds, very easy




We stayed in a suite in this gem and loved every minute! Room was magnificent, bed was comfortable and we had a view of the harbor. Wonderful location to stroll the area and great food at the bar on site. We plan on returning!
