Reviews from guests who stayed with us recently
From check in to check out this hotel did everything perfectly. We had an executive room on the third floor with a lovely view. The bed is huge and comfortable and the bathroom is also very large with a bath and separate shower.
We had dinner at the attached pub which was excellent with very good service.
The shops/town are a 3/4 minute walk along the waters edge.
A 'Pierless' Location
Situated on the pier in Kinsale the Trident Hotel is superbly located for visiting the town of Kinsale and the surrounding region. Right on the water the views from many of the rooms are stunning, On our recent visit we had a corner room with two large picture windows overlooking the harbour. The check in was very efficient and friendly and the room was very comfortable and clean. We have stayed there on a number of previous occasions and this time ate in the Wharf Bar for the first time. The food was really good and served by courteous and helpful staff. There are excellent hot and cold breakfast options. The Trident Hotel is a great way to start a trip on the Wild Atlantic Way and worth a visit.
Perfect Location. Excellent in Every Way
Can't wait to go back. Very nice decor. Clean. Friendly staff. Perfect location for walking all over Kinsale. Had a water view and wish we could have stayed longer. On site restaurants. Very good breakfast.
Outstanding Place to Stay with an Outstanding View!
Ticks all the boxes! This place is up there with the international hotels without the price tag. Secure free parking with a great reception, we were `walk in's' here and greeted by a great reception team, enquired about the rate and then upgraded. The room was outstanding with a jaw breaking view right on the harbour. The room and the entire hotel were spotlessly CLEAN with great decor and the bed, the bed, the bed was heaven. Could have stayed here for ages. We did not have to leave the hotel as everything is there, bars and restaurants! Breakfast was included and was beautiful.
Would not hesitate recommending this place.
Outstanding hotel and very wheelchair accessible.
Stayed at the Trident last weekend for two nights. This is a fabulous hotel. Approximately 8 min walk from the town of Kinsale. We had booked the jolly January deal which included a two course dinner in the wharf tavern on both nights. They have an excellent menu with some excellent fish dishes which both my wife and I ordered both nights and we were not disappointed, the food is outstanding and served by very friendly staff who also took time for a bit of a chat. As a wheelchair user I had requested an accessible room, the room we got (318) was very spacious as was the ensuite which had both roll in shower and bath there was also a lower level hand basin as well as the standard one ( the lower one didn’t have a mirror over it and the mirror over the standard one is too high for a wheelchair user, for this reason I always bring my own for shaving) there was also a shower chair and all the usual grab rails. The room was spotlessly clean with a view of the river and boats. The bed was large and very comfortable with little noise from the outside. It also had complimentary bottles of water. It is quiet a long carpeted corridor from the lift to the room which could be a little difficult for a wheelchair user with reduced arm strength. Breakfast was a very nicely presented buffet of cereals, fruits, cold meats and cheeses. There was also the option of hot breakfast cooked to order, which we had, it was very tasty, hot and plentiful, breakfast staff were just like all the other staff we met, very friendly and helpful. The wharf tavern bar is a very nice bar with great staff. It gets a little quiet there when dinner has finished as most people seem to stroll in to town to visit one or more of the great pubs which also have live music, as we did. The wheelhouse bar seems to be the residents bar and is very comfortable and where we had a bit of a sing song on the first night with other guests. The route in to town is level and along the harbor. I did encounter quiet a bit of dog poop on the footpaths in town so as usual keep an eye out for it. There is also a wheelchair accessible public toilet about half way in to town. Overall this is a wonderful hotel which has been recently refurbished. It is warm, comfortable, very clean, serves fantastic food. It is very wheelchair accessible and it also has excellent and friendly staff. I wold not bother looking for another place to stay when going to kinsale again unless the Trident is fully booked. We had a great two nights there, and for that we thank the staff of the hotel, The bouquet of flowers for my wife was a very nice touch and very much appreciated.
