While the staff are friendly and the food is good, trying to get the attention of the staff is very difficult. The pace of action is unbelievably slow and they're oblivious to the customers seeking service. Many customers have needed to approach a waiter or get the menu themselves. Room for improvement!

The beautiful town of dalkey is walking distance from this hotel which is a redeeming feature for this hotel. It is ideally situated for a train trip to Dublin as well. The breakfast food is borderline. After reading reviews here on the restaurant we chose to eat downtown which was a good decision. The staff are quite friendly and helpful.

The Fitzpatrick Castle Hotel was a wonderful experience. The staff was friendly and I loved the area it was in. It was just a short walk to Dalkey Village which had an excellent selection of pubs. It was a little difficult to find if you don't have a GPS (if that's the case, the M50 to Junction 16 was the... More

We stayed for 2 nights in April of this year and found the hotel a little frayed but still hinting of its former glory. The rooms were very large and nicely appointed but the carpet was very worn and looked like it needed a good cleaning. The bathrooms were large as well but we did have some difficulty with the...

This was a great place to stay. It was clean and quietand located fairly close to a little town called Dalkey. It is a small town but has a lot of picture spots and small cafes. The hotel is also located next to two train stations that can get you into Dublin within 15-20 minutes. Was definitely worth the price... More

I will preface this review by saying, i realize I am not in America and I am ok with things not being the same in other parts of the world. However, this hotel has a beautiful website that depicts an enchanting property on the Dublin Bay! Far from it! This property is worn and tired, nothing resembles the pictures. The... More

Show video on web site and thought hotel looked lovely, however video was not true representation of this hotel. Very old and outdated hotel and rooms. The reception was not good. Very unhelpful. There are no gardens. And no sea views. Outside pub is in parking lot! The room does not look like it has been updated in 50 years!... More

To use the urban slang, this hotel is beautiful from afar, but actually rather shabby close up. The room was a good size, but the shower had abysmal water pressure. Dinner in the restaurant was adequate and the drinks were fine. Breakfast was the best part of the stay. Tasty food in an elegant room. All in all, it was... More
