With a focus on service and exceeding expectations, we’ve built a reputation on delivering excellence in everything we do. However, it is the quality of food that comes from our kitchen that really sets us apart. Known as ‘The Gourmet Capital of Ireland’ and voted ‘Ireland’s Top Foodie Town’ in 2018, Kinsale is internationally renowned for its food. We’re delighted to be able to continue this tradition by offering the finest artisan creations, developed by leading chefs that use the best locally-sourced produce. As well as being a modern, luxurious hotel with incredible views of our unique surroundings, Trident Hotel Kinsale is also an ideal base to explore the sunny south-west of Ireland.

Just returned from 3 nights at the Trident. What a great hotel. The staff all over the hotel are excellent. They are a credit to the hotel. So professional and courteous. Finn in the restaurant/bar was so nice and was great for interacting with all the customers. He is a great asset. The food was excellent both at breakfast and in the bar. Can’t wait to return again.

Our room was on the second floor with beautiful views across the harbour. We could sit in bed and watch the boats coming in and out . It was so relaxing and the very comfortable bed and pillows made us reluctant to leave the room in the mornings. Breakfast was excellent and was served in the restaurant overlooking the harbour . All the waiting staff in the bars and at breakfast were very attentive, pleasant and friendly . The room and public areas were very clean and staff were constantly sanitising the tables and the lifts. The outdoor bar was a bonus right at the waters edge and especially pleasant for a cocktail in the early evening . The only negative was the car parking as many others have said but we were lucky and only had one day out of four when we had trouble finding a suitable space.When we return to Kinsale we will stay here again .

Our stay in the Trident Hotel was so enjoyable despite covid restrictions. The food was top class , the staff were so nice especially one wee Cork girl with blonde hair whose name escapes me. A fabulous place to stay while visiting a beautiful part of the country.

Its over 2 years since our last stay in the Trident and it was even better than I remembered. The hotels adherence to Government Covid 19 protocols is an example to all businesses. The standard of food served for both the breakfast and evening meals was exceptional and all served by staff that clearly enjoyed their job and were happy to engage and oblige the guest. We extended our stay not once but twice and on each occasion the reception were more than happy to facilitate us. We will be back at the end of the month and are already counting the days.
