The hotel is clean and the bed was comfortable with no noise complaints. It was nice to find parking in the lot without any troubles. They let us check in early which was a huge plus from our transatlantic journey overnight. The only downfall was that only the front seems to have any sort of castle resemblance. I'm happy for...

Arrived late on a Saturday night after a last minute booking. We were welcomed by two lovely Gentlemen at Reception - very friendly and accommodating. We were given a lovely room on the 3rd floor - very spacious & quiet. Breakfast was delicious & check out was hassle free!

Clontarf Castle is a beautiful fortress harking back to the days of yore. Comfortable contemporary comforts amidst medieval environs. Everything from the rooms to the restaurant and bars were wonderful. We shall return this year!

We recently spent 3 days in Ireland visiting places of family significance. The first place we stayed was this beautiful castle. The welcome was warm and friendly. The environment was awesome with the original castle having been very tastefully converted to a hotel. Lots of original features were still there but the rooms were extremely comfortable and well appointed ....... More

I stayed here on business for several weeks and the hotel was delightful. Beautiful setting and excellent staff. The food offering is a high standard and breakfast is very good. The only criticism is that the gym is tiny.

We were treated like absolute Royalty. Amazing staff and a gorgeous venue with a perfect Dublin location. Too many weddings these days are in the country, if you're a Dub and want to keep it local for friend and family then there is no better spot than Clontarf Castle. 11/10
