we had a lovely short break here in November. Food in the bar was delicious and reasonably priced. Breakfast was fairly good and pancakes made to order was a nice touch. Overall I was very happy with our stay and would stay again

I love how this hotel is modern but still has kept parts of the original castle throughout. A nice touch was arriving to a selection of deserts and a bottle of wine in our very modern room. Its a short walk to the river front where you can get a bus into Dublin centre which takes about 10 mins. The... More

We stayed at Clontarf Castle on our last night in Ireland. We wanted a place to wind down, have a wonderful meal and see a few items before we ventured home. They were wonderful! We arrived and a taxi picked us up 15 minutes later to make sure we made our last trip for sight seeing. We returned from sight... More

Stayed one night on a mini break to Dublin. The hotel is on a bus route from opposite Connolly Station and a five minute walk from the seafront. The room was large and comfortable and very quiet as it was at the back of the hotel (203) Staff were all friendly and very helpful and both dinner and breakfast were... More

I booked three nights at the Clontarf Castle Hotel as a surprise holiday for my fiancé's 30th birthday. It was by far the best hotel I have ever stayed in, and we are already planning our return. I booked a two-night luxury break offer, which included breakfast on both days and one meal at the Farenheit restaurant; followed by one... More

Was soo excited to being staying in this place but I was really disappointed. The hotel itself is nice, well decorated and clean but there was no atmosphere at all. We had a few drinks in the bar and couldn't believe that there was no music, not even background music. The bar itself was uninviting and a bit formal. There... More

We have just returned here for 2 night stay and was pleasantly surprised as the castle was a real castle (as opposed to someone believing they were a castle). We were greeted warmly & professionally by the receptionist and check in was very smooth and quick. The rooms were lovely, and more comfortable than i was imagining, as very often... More

We visited Clontarf castle for one night stay, our second visit! We requested a bigger room in a quieter part of the hotel due to my 6month old and this was accommodated for us. The room was beautiful, bed was very comfy, a great hotel &staff. Breakfast was second to none! We will be back!
