We had a fantastic time staying at the Clontarf Castle Hotel in Dublin! The hotel is a legitimate castle rich with history that captivated us. The hotel is a little out of the way from the rest of the hustle and bustle of Dublin, but that was part of the appeal for us. The staff was incredibly helpful and bent... More

Booked the Indigo bar and terrace for a corporate summer BBQ, the food was fantastic, the staff were excellent, even the sun came out.. but even if it had been raining it wouldn't have mattered as the Indigo bar is a beautiful room for a private event. Highly recommend for a private party. Only negative was that we had to... More

My son and I had a late airport arrival from Paris and I thought it would be a special treat to spend a night at Clontarf Castle Hotel before making our way into the city centre where the rest of our Irish vacation was based.

Usually pictures have a way of making things look bigger, so we went to this hotel with average expectations thinking the rooms and bathroom would be tiny but that the hotel was really cool on the outside, and we were okay with that. But this hotel exceeded our expectations. Our room wasn't huge, but granted we had three beds in... More

Upon arriving in Ireland from overseas, we recently spent one night at Clontarf Castle. I had been very excited about staying there based on the glowing reviews, but left feeling a little disappointed. To be sure, the public areas of the hotel are VERY beautiful and tastefully decorated. Whoever was in charge of design really did a wonderful job! I... More

I made this my first stop in Ireland after having such a good experience with this hotel while traveling with my husband last year.
