I stayed three nights at the historic. Castle Hotel in Dublin with my Girl Scouts. We stayed in the very simple twin rooms. Very affordable. The full Irish breakfast was included. Delicious and a great start to the day. We were within walking distance of the Guineas Storehouse, Trinity College, Museums and St. Patrick's Cathedral. City Sightseeing tour bus will... More

We loved the Castle Hotel! The staff was always polite, efficient and friendly. The hotel was clean and in good condition. The car park (a bargain at €10 per day) was a bit tight, but not impossible to navigate. We stayed in a family room that was 2 separate bedrooms with a bathroom between them. Our room was clean and... More

The family room we had overlooked the very busy street, so we were woken early by the noisy traffic. The room also backed on to the creaky, noisy stairway, so we had very little uninterrupted sleep. The room itself was basic, with quite uncomfortable beds and pillows. The location is good, with convenient access to O'Connell Street and the main... More

Dear MJMH, Thank you for reviewing your stay with us here at the Castle Hotel. The hotel is conveniently located a mere 2/3 minute walk from the main street in Dublin, O'Connell Street. With that, being located so close to the city center if some traffic interrupted your sleep I do apologize for that. The Castle hotel is the oldest... More

A disappointing stay at the Castle Hotel. We advised the hotel before our stay that it would be my sisters birthday on the 1st August & that we would like it to be special. The rooms we were given were so noisey that we had little sleep during our stay. My sister & niece were woken at 3.30am with the... More

We stayed at the Castle Hotel at the start and end of a tour of Ireland with a group of undergraduate students from the States. It was clean, had free wifi, nice ensuite rooms, helpful staff, good breakfast (though a bit of a factory because of the large number of people they serve), good basement restaurant with wonderful live music....
