This was my second stay at the Castle. Once again, I was very pleased with my stay. The location is ideal, and every morning I would be in the heart of the city center in just minutes. The breakfast has something for everyone. From a full Irish one, cereal, yogurt, and fresh fruit if you ask. The wait staff is... More

We have enjoyed our stay here. Price vs quality was not in line with eachother. When you lay down in your bed and some one is passing by in the hallway the floor goes up and down. It is quiet noisy to, but the staff was great and very helpfull. Greetings from Holland.

Dear Danielle, Thank you very much lovely review. I am so happy that you enjoyed your time here with us. As you could probably tell, it is the oldest hotel in Dublin so creaks and squeaks are expected. I believe it adds to the character and charm of the hotel. I do hope that we will have the pleasure of... More

Myself and my partner stayed at The Castle Hotel as I was delivering a seminar the following day (Thurs 25th), Check in Wed was seemless and painless, the room ( a little walk away) was spotless and on a coldish day was lovely and warm. We ate in the bar/restaurant that night, the food was excellent, the young lady serving... More

Just returned from a short break to Dublin staying in the castle hotel. The location is perfect, just a 5 minute walk off the busy O'Connell Street, and a 10 to 15 minute walk to the Temple Bar area. The hotel is clean, full of charm and character, the staff were friendly and the breakfast was a great extra for... More

I like old hotels, they have personality. This was an OLD hotel, but with modern upgrades. The location of the hotel was close to shopping, buses, and tour buses. The only bad thing was I went there in Dec and it was cold in my room. They have heaters in the halls, but not in the rooms. The desk people... More

Dear guest, Thank you very much for reviewing your stay with us. I am delighted that you enjoyed the charm and personality the hotel has to offer. It is the oldest hotel in Dublin since 1809 and boasts Georgian features that can still be seen throughout the hotel. Over winter I know that the weather did get very cold at... More

This is no ordinary hotel ! Made of seven converted townhouses, to say it's rambling is the understatement of the century. It's the oldest hotel in Dublin, and has the pedigree to go with it. Gorgeous antique furnishings, creaky wooden floors, hidden staircases, narrow dead-end corridors, thick carpets, chandeliers and rooms tucked here and there in no apparent logical order.... More

We have just come back from 4 days in this hotel. We had 2 rooms (1double and 1twin) on the 3rd floor. The rooms are very pretty and the bed was very comfortable. Every day there's a little chocolat on the pillow. You can male tea and coffee too. Everything was very clean. The only thing missing was a little... More

We were a group of 7 English rugby fans. This hotel provided very comfortable bistro style accommodation within easy walking distance of Central Dublin. Very helpful and friendly staff. Good breakfast and dinner menu. Would definitely stay again when visiting Dublin. The live music was an option if desired in the cellar bar and restaurant area.
