Nearly every review of the Trident Hotel starts with our Amazing Location. No surprise seeing that we are situated right on Kinsale Harbour. From the moment you arrive you can see what makes this such a special place.
Even with such a scenic location, the Trident Hotel is just 5 minutes walk from the centre of the beautiful harbour town of Kinsale, County Cork. Even the casual visitor to Kinsale will be captivated by its beautiful setting.. with the long waterfront, narrow winding streets, colourful shops, galleries & cafes and it’s picturesque, bustling harbour…. Kinsale will capture your imagination!
Kinsale has earned the title of “Gourmet Capital of Ireland” and has over 30 superb restaurants, pubs and cafes in the town. Each year in early October, Kinsale plays host to the world renowned “Kinsale Gourmet Festival”, when visitors and locals can feast on all the culinary delights the town has to offer.
Another highlight in the Kinsale calendar of events is the Kinsale Fringe Jazz Festival… originally a spin off from the Cork Jazz Festival, it has become a huge success in it’s own right. At the end of October each year, you will hear jazz from every bar & hotel in town, and all jazz sessions are free!!
All that and easy to get to! Kinsale is 30 minutes south of Cork City and 20 minutes from Cork International Airport.
