This is an older hotel, but a good location outside the main city. The hotel is on the water and a bus ride (about 15 minutes) from city center. The restaurant and hotel operate as one, which offers a unique experience. So the hotel is older but had all the necessities a traveler would want. The room had a TV,... More

The Bram Stoker's location opposite the water and next to a boatyard ticks many boxes for me. Inside is a fun bar area with a pretty good selection of food and a very good selection of drinks! Upstairs is the Vikings Steakhouse which was unfortunately fully booked the night I stayed and there was confusion as to whether or not... More

I ate in the hotel restaurant as part of a work group night out for Christmas. Everyone agreed that the food was excellent. The restaurant was not very busy but the service was impeccable. Jugs of water without having to ask and nothing was a problem. Will definitely eat here again. The bar downstairs was lovely for a drink after.

I chose the Bram Stoker for the price and admittedly the name, being an avid reader. I found a genuine treasure of a B&B. The service was the best I've found in any hotel, it's immaculately clean and beautiful and the room was warm and extremely convenient and comfortable. The bathroom had a bath and plenty of hot water. The... More

Haven't stayed in the hotel or eaten in the upstairs restaurant but the two times I've eaten in the gastropub, I was really impressed. The food is great - several cuts above what you'd expect from a small bar a little bit off the beaten track. The staff are super-friendly and attentive when it counts. There's also an excellent selection... More

Stayed two nights in The Bram Stoker in October. Had a lovely spacious room to the front overlooking the sea with the lights of the city and Dunlaoighre in the distance at night. The bar is cosy with a rustic maritime theme to the decor and a broad selection of beers and spirits and great food. Daniel saw to our... More

So quiet and so kind people. Paulina and Tom helped us greatly and had a very good advice with the nighttime at Howl! And the situation is so easy: Clontarf's a magic neighborhood! Thanks again, see you soon!
