We signed on for a 2-night stay with one dinner and 2 breakfasts included in the price. Fantastic value. Upon arrival we were graciously upgraded to a beautiful suite on the top floor. There was a king poster bed, clawfoot tub and separate shower, and a sitting room with huge TV. One of the rooms was glass on 3 sides... More

Beautiful castle, modern rooms. Only negative is location, which isn't bad, just not in the city center, so be prepared to taxi :) Lovely breakfast and nice 2 bar options in the evening. Walls a bit thin between rooms though...could hear conversations at times.

This hotel is excellent albeit a little out of the town centre it is worth staying here. Rooms are comfy and well appointed. Restaurant is good and the breakfast is great. Staff are all friendly and it is easy to hop on a bus or hail a cab into the centre of town.

My girlfriend's and my stay was extremely pleasant. I was bowled over by the lobby and surrounding bar areas - the little cubby hole near the Knights Bar was a great little secluded drinking spot. The armour, stags' heads, wall drapery, even the braces of pheasants were fantastic little touches. Our bedroom was equally impressive with a four poster bed... More

I chose Clontarf Castle for our last night in Ireland, spend the last night at a castle. I was not disappointed. It is rather difficult to find, esp at night since I couldn't see any signs,but thanks to the helpful man at the parking garage in Dublin we found our way. The place is just stunning. It has the original... More

Booked the Clontarf Castle through Trivago for a family visit, surprisingly this hotel was not as expensive as some of the others on offer, but the chance to stay in a castle was a must as the location was central for our visit and only a short distance from ferry. This hotel impressed from the start, a hidden gem in... More
