We loved this hotel! A little kitchy with it's castle theme when in reality the current hotel is really quite modern, but we loved it! An important note: if booking through Expedia, etc., I was told by the front desk staff that Expedia is supposed to contact the hotel to clarify if twin beds or double are needed in the... More

On arrival entrance is lovely, rooms were very spacious, cocktails were great, staff were very friendly and so handy to the city centre only 15 euros for a taxi, great as they have free parking. Will definitely be back.

Really enjoyed our stay, staff could not have been more helpful and friendly. Hotel was clean and in a lovely location. Food was on the more expensive end but worth it and is ideal for a short trip. Will definitely return!

We arrived to a lovely welcome from the receptionists, extremely efficient, friendly and courteous. Our room was inviting, extremely clean ( thanks to Aurora, who was also extremely helpful), the bed was to die for, extremely extremely comfortable. We had an issue with electrics which was resolved immediately. I must commend the hotel management, the staff from bar assistants, to... More

I booked here for one night for our 27th Wedding anniversary. It definitely has the wow factor on arriving into the car park. Very pleasant receptionist welcomed us and we made our way to our executive room, what a room with a four poster bed. Mrs was well impressed. We then received a visit from the waiter who delivered a... More

Staff was friendly, room and hotel was GORGEOUS, plus there were fireplaces everywhere! My husband and I plan to go back for our 10 year anniversary. The restaurant in the hotel was really nice and fairly priced. Also, we LOVED the room service. You can basically order everything under the sun to be sent to your room. The only downside... More

Clontarf castle impressed me the minute the taxi pulled into the carpark... Wow! Upon check-in service was first class. The room was quite large, and very well equipped, complete with guest wi-fi and decorated with an impressive illuminated purple perspex and wooden panelled feature. My only issue, which to be fair isnt really a major issue is that we booked... More

But it had North American plug ins!!!, was very clean, great atmosphere and fantastic hot wings and nachos. There is even a small dungeon room you can sit in for drinks that is very private.

My wife and I had the misfortune to (almost) have a snack in the restaurant/bar of the Clontarf Castle Hotel in Dublin.With the benefit of hindsight, I guess seeing the tables which had not been cleared after previous diners should have been a clear warning of things to come.Nobody came to take our order after waiting several minutes, so my...
