This hotel is an excellent mix of new and old with a great service and only a short distance from Dublin City centre. The food at the restaurant was good and not too expensive and the breakfast was also well worth the price. Overall would recommend to anyone looking for a different hotel experience outside of the city.

Wonderful all around...everything you woukd expect from ambiance to food...but for a hotel of this price and caliber a hotel car or bus should be available twice a day to go to town and back...a taxi twice a day gets pretty expensive

This is a late review, but this place was so special that I'm going to add it to my reviews. My daughter and I stayed here at the beginning of a 2 week tour of Ireland, before we joined the tour. The castle is everything you would want in a castle, right down to original tapestries, medieval armor, antique furniture... More

We stayed at the Clontarf Castle on our last night in Dublin as it was fairly close to the airport and we had to fly out early the next morning...and my wife loves castles. The hotel itself is really impressive, especially the front entrance and they have done a good job of mixing the old castle with the new extensions... More

Absolutely stunning property. Had an excellent fish and chips at the Knights Bar, along with a perfectly poured Guiness. Elaine our waitress was super friendly. Late in the evening we ran into (Barry?) who gave us a tour of the beautiful banquet room and the incredible Indigo lounge. All our questions were professionally answered and we couldn't have been happier.... More

After enjoying our 3rd visit to Clontarf Castle, we could never consider staying anywhere else in Dublin! The rooms, the staff (especially Jason), the atmosphere and the service are second to none. Already booked again :-)

Had breakfast and met friends in the lobby for a family reunion but didn't stay the night. Food and service was good and the feel of the hotel was good. Would like to stay the night when I next visit the area

We loved everything about this hotel. The location in a quiet area, within walking distance from sea front and within easy access of bus to the city centre. The beautiful architecture and cosy interior. The warm and friendly welcome at reception on arrival and swift check-in. Our room was very comfortable and kept nice and clean and well stocked with...
