having stayed here many times before, myself and my elderly dad were in town for a family funeral, very unexpected. Where before we had excellent rooms and service, this time we were in single rooms, which were poor to say the least. Curtains hanging off the rail, old mouldy silicone sealant in the showers. A step up into the bathrooms,... More

Despite the fact that the Reception Staff were friendly and efficient, things went rapidly downhill from there. Bedroom was small and very cluttered. dinner that night in the Music Store was an absolute disaster - food awful, service even worse, with the exception of one young man with a northern accent, the rest of the staff were bordering on being...

The Castle Hotel was extremely clean and the staff were superb. However, our first room was extremely noisy for the 30 minutes we spent in it at around 4pm. We had very noisy neighbours next door and we could hear very loud voices from beneath the room (kitchen??). We asked for an upgrade and were given a family room without... More

Nicely placed just on the edge of the city centre, but set back from the busiest roads. Friendly staff throughout the hotel and the stay. The room was nice; a decent size with comfortable furnishings. The only problem I had was the shower controls were exactly at elbow height for me. The bruise took some days to fade! Very atmospheric... More

All I can say, is this hotel exceeded our expectations. We loved the location up O'Connell Street and away from the nightlife and noise, but yet an easy walk to attractions. In 20 minutes we could be anywhere in the core area of Dublin. The Irish Breakfast was very good, and staff very accommodating. We visited June 21st to 29th,... More

Dank, poor service and just a bad idea. Checked into a "family room" with 2 kids last Saturday. Turns out "family" room is a regular room with four single beds jammed in. Bath was newly redone, but shower drain was completely stopped up. Lobby was dark and junky. Finding our room was like a trip through a halloween corn maze.... More

During our recent trip to Ireland, The Castle Hotel was our least favorite of the three places that we stayed while in Dublin It was ridiculously hot and stuffy in the room, so much so that it kept us from getting much sleep before a big day of events. This might have been due to the location of our room... More
