Booked a weekend stay package at the Trident which included 2 nights accommodation B&B with 1 evening meal.
We arrived and parked in the car park, went to check in and were told our room wasn't yet ready, and that we were being upgraded to a junior suite, so with that we walked into the Town. Only a 5-10 minute walk along the Quay into the heart of Kinsale. We used the opportunity to get our bearings. After stopping at Fishy Fishy for lunch, we came back to the hotel to check in.
We got one of the junior suites, which had a great view of the water and the nearby yacht club. Pros of the suite, were the size, the view, large bathroom with both shower and bath, well stocked mini bar and fridge. However we found the beds a little too firm and the pillows as well. Apart from that the room was lovely.
We made reservations for dinner in the restaurant, on our first night, we enjoyed the starters, and desert, however were a little underwhelmed by the main courses.
One of the highlights for the stay was the bar, there was a great buzz in there during the day and the staff were very friendly and giving lots of tips of places to go and see while we stayed. The bar does be a little quiet in the evening, but that is probably due to most people would walk into the town for the various pubs / restaurant options with music. Which we did ourselves. We also ate in the bar on the Second Day while watching the Rugby, there was a lot of people in eating, i'd a fantastic portion of mussels, and my wife had a great lasagne special offer which included an alcoholic drink. Very good idea guys! Again the banter with the staff was great.
All in all we enjoyed our stay at the Trident and would stay there again. Look forward to seeing you in the future.
