Trident Hotel Review

The modern three-story building may lack old-world charm, but the waterfront location more than compensates—built around three sides of a former dockyard on the edge of Kinsale's magnificent harbor, the Trident features large rooms with fabulous sea views. The hotel is adjacent to a working pier where rusty coasters tie up overnight, adding to the authentic harbor atmosphere and providing a conversation topic as you breakfast in the first-floor restaurant within feet of a ship's stern. The Wharf Tavern and Grill is popular with locals, who range from stevedores to owners of the million-dollar yachts moored at the neighboring marina.
