This review is long overdue. My husband and I had our wedding here. We are both from the US - with no family or friends in Ireland - and decided on a destination wedding; we selected Clontarf for the wedding ceremony and reception. We had a phenomenal experience. Not only was the wedding gorgeous and so easy for us, but... More

A gem nestled in a close Dublin suburb! I was able to e Walk the tree-lined neighborhood. The hotel is beautiful, modern and very well maintained. Staff is welcoming, helpful and attentive to detail. There are many little nooks tucked away for relaxing or visiting. The room was spacious, lovely and had all amenities. Large windows opened for a lovely... More

This is not what I would term a castle hotel as this is more of a hotel attached to a castle. The public areas such as the restaurant are in the castle while rooms are not. There is nothing overtly special about the rooms. The rooms are done in a modern European style with minimal furniture. The hotel restaurant was... More

We arrived in the early evening and were greeted by a friendly Reception lady. We were given our rooms and set off to change for dinner. Small room but with all the modern upscale conveniences. Stocked refrigerator, great shower, and comfortable bed made it a great night's rest. We took a five minute taxi ride to Bram Stoker where we... More
