A beautiful hotel! Quite the experience. We had stayed in central Dublin previously and decided to try a stay in a "castle". It was outstanding! The staff was courteous very helpful and efficient. The accommodations were perfect. We're hoping to repeat the visit next time we find ourselves in Dublin.

Looking for a wonderful end to a spectacular weeklong visit to Dublin. The entirety of the trip was spectacular, save Clontarf. There was a large wedding booked on the Thu evening we arrived, and as a result, the wedding party and guests had "the run of the place". Starting with a loud and celebratory reception area, we were treated as... More

Have stayed at Clontarf Castle repeatedly and have often recommended it. The facilities are excellent. The rooms are superb. The location is ideal (for us, because we don't want to be right downtown). Until this most recent stay, all the staff had also been exceptional. Unfortunately, we encountered one member of staff and her treatment of us (and the lack... More

Dublin is a city unlike other bustling mad cities where being in the city is important. We walked into the city centre each day from clontarf castle and it was a lovely walk along the waterside and through quiet and peaceful paths. The walk takes about an hour from castle to GPO. The hotel itself is one of the most... More

THE GOOD Room The room I've booked comes with a queen size bed and I won't consider it too crowded; acceptable for business travelers. It comes with the standard iron and board for ladies who pack clothes that occasionally require straightening/ironing. The room also offers adequate power outlets which are very useful for business travelers trotting their laptop, mobile phones... More

Had a chance to take my mother to Ireland and began our trip with three nights at the Clontarf Castle Hotel. I was not disappointed! I could go on and on about this place, but the bottom line.....stay here!

We stayed in Clontarf Castle on Monday 21st and 22nd July as we had a family birthday. It was a very good experience from start to finish. This hotel is tastefully decorated throughout. The old with the new works very well to complement each other. We had dinner in hotel restaurant on our first night and the food was delicious... More

My friend and I were so excited to have a chance to stay in a castle...it was so worth it! You can find good rates by shopping around on various websites and using discount codes. Definitely take advantage of the 10€ breakfast in the morning!! Great value compared to what you will get on the street! Their bar menu was... More

We had our baby's Christening lunch in Clontarf Castle. All contact with staff, from booking lunch to service on the day was excellent. We loved the restaurant decor and the food was delicious. All our needs were catered for including high chairs and children's menus. The inclusion of our baby's photograph on the menu was a lovely personal touch and... More

When planning our trip, my daughter wanted to stay in a castle, but we required one that was convenient to sight seeing and city activities. Clontarf fit the bill perfectly. We enjoyed the combination of authentic public spaces and modern guest rooms. The staff was more than ready to assist. One kind gentleman took my mother and me on a... More
