Wonderful place! The staff adds a five star touch. Most particularly, Niamh and Grame are home runs! We are going back Sept. 8 before a flight to Munich and then again before going home after the Ryder Cup.... Being in the Clontarf neighborhood is better than City Centre but just a few miles away.

Recently stayed with husband and toddler on a 3 night Family fun package (£145/night) which included breakfast, two dinners and a trip to the zoo. Check-in was smooth and the room cosy and spacious. We were on ground level and had a depressing view of the parking lot. The bathroom was small but very clean, however if you are the... More

We stayed at this hotel with some Australian friends, they were really impressed.This is a lovely hotel with ancient features cleverly blended into a modern hotel, a short taxi ride away from the centre of Dublin I would thoroughly recommend it.

We stayed at the Colntarf Castle Hotel has we thought it would be add a bit of class to our stay in Dublin, First I must say that the room was clean and very nice, the lighting was bad with no mirror lights for shaving but from there it went down hill very quick.

If you are going to other castle hotels in Ireland, you will be bitterly dissapointed by this one. It is NOT up to the specs of the others. The building is not historic or even historic feeling. You are also basically right in town. Once you are in your room, it feels like you are in a cheap chain hotel.... More

My sister had her wedding in the hotel last month. The food at the wedding was lovely and all the staff were very friendly. I stayed in the hotel the night of the wedding. The rooms were nicely decorated and very clean. We ate breakfast in the restaurant the following morning and there was a good choice available. When we... More

My wife and I, along with another couple, stayed here for three nights. Upon arrival we fell for the charm of the castle and our first impression of the staff. That faded after the first night. We stayed for three nights and endured loud (pounding bass) music all three nights from receptions and parties booked at the hotel that lasted... More
