Dear Clontarf Castle Words can't describe how much we enjoyed our wedding day, and the entire weekend. We were pretty nervous since we planed the whole thing from Norway. Everything was so perfect and professional. You really know how to make the wedding day perfect! Also a big thanks for recommending Paul Kelly as photographer. He took the most amazing... More

We stayed 2 nights in mid May. Wow...the property is just beautiful. The staff was accommodating and friendly. The bed was extremely comfortable. We had an amazing meal in the restaurant. My husband can't stop talking about it and wants me to get the recipe for their "Guinness beef stew". I was very pleased that they had an "American" outlet... More

It was a very nice compromise on price for staying in a castle. Its more a hotel than castle but we really liked it. It would have higher stars if it was closer to town, but we enjoyed walking the neighborhood and so forth. it was a good place

Super friendly and very helpful staff, and the most comfortable beds in Ireland. The food was unbelievably great. The Guinness and beef stew was THE BEST that I have ever had, ever. Great place to relax in after a busy day of visiting the Dublin City area.

We were guests at Clontarf Castle Hotel for 6 nights in early May. We had just come from what was supposed to be a luxury resort, but it was an overall bad experience. The staff at Clontarf inquired about our experiences in Ireland thus far and we shared a bit about our negative experience at the previous resort. Upon entering... More

We attended a ball at the Castle and stayed the night. The staff were excellent from check in to check out the next morning. The room was spacious and well fitted out with a lovely bathroom. The castle is a mix of modern and old architecture, delightfully decorated with knights and thrones dotted about the place. I would highly recommend... More

We were here just one day, but it was a great experience. We were checked in efficiently and were given assistance in printing our boarding passes for the next day without any troubles. Rooms are very clean, comfortable and well appointed. Just a heads up that there was not anyone to help with our bags at all. We chose this... More

This is a beautiful place. The rooms may be a bit small but very cosy. The hotel is always humming giving a good atmosphere. However as we were travelers and did not feel like getting dressed up for dinner our only option to eat was the bar. Having been there a few times, the standard of food varies from yum... More

The grounds and service were very nice during our stay. Only complaint would be timeliness of food served in the bar area and room service. The bar took more than 2 hours getting us our food. We needed to catch an early flight and room service brought us our breakfast about 20 minutes late.
