My mother and I spent a night in the hotel as we were in Dublin for a family gathering. The way that the castle has been restored is magnificent. Retaining the original atmosphere of the castle whilst giving it a modern twist - the glass roofed reception, is applaudable. The staff were very helpful and the sound insulation in the... More

Just spent one evening with family to celebrate a special birthday at Clontarf Castle. Enjoyed every aspect of our stay. The rooms were beautfully presented, comfortable and immaculately clean. The food in the hotel's Fahrenheit restaurant was fantastic only to be outdone be the service we received. Couldn't recommend the hotel highly enough. Great value too.

This was our 2nd visit to the castle. First in 2011 around the same time of year. They have updated the establishment some since our last visit but did not take any of it's charm away. When coming in from the airport it is very difficult to see the sign for Clontarf-it's small., but stop and ask anyone and they... More

Had wonderful 3 night stay here. Accommodation was excellent as was the food and service. The staff couldn't have been more friendly or helpful. The location is ideal for Dublin city although far enough away for peace and quiet. I hope to return to this hotel in the near future.

The hotel's location is great, the food was excellent and the interactions we had with the hotel staff really made our experience in Dublin and Ieland pleasant. A special thanks to our week long bar crew Danny, Graham, Keith, and Peter. Thanks for educating us, being patient with us, suggesting wonderful places to visit and most importantly being friendly.

My partner and I only stayed one night on our way through to the centre of Dublin city, but the stay was absolutely lovely. The breakfast was a highlight - a proper Irish breakfast - but the rooms were also beautifully furnished and the staff were very accommodating. We drove here and the castle was easy to find, but I'm... More

Great choice of hotel for a family trip to Dublin. Stunning entrance to reception area and spacious family room on top floor. Staff could not have been more friendly and helpful, taking the time to do a treasure hunt with the children even when the hotel was busy. This hotel is a hidden gem set in a quiet suburb within...

Clontarf Castle is a beautiful hotel for whoever is looking to enjoy dublin without being too close to the center. A lovely hotel, in a renovated old castle and a very calm neighborhood. The staff was great, and rooms were clean and organized. On the Negative side, the rooms with ad-joint doors allowed no privacy and noise was always heard... More
