Gorgeous Bar

Had a drink here on Sunday at the bar. It was absolutely packed with people having food but there was plenty of room at the bar. It's a beautiful bar with lots of lovely features. The food smelled great too. I'll definitely go back for the gorgeous surroundings and the lovely chilled white wine.

Food choice is really good and the prices are pretty reasonable for Dublin. The bar is just next to the hotel lobby area, accessible either through Hotel or the additional door out front. There is also a lovely outdoor seating area perfect for when the sun makes an appearance.

It was good but noisy. There was kids running back and forth during our drinks and meal. The parents didn't seem to care and the staff did nothing about it. Two different tables spoke to the kids to settle them down.

We sat in the Knights Bar for several glasses of wine and pints of Guinness. The wait staff was very attentive despite a large crowd. They did not have mixed drinks, or if they did our server didn't know about them; but she didn't look at me too harshly when I made a Guinness float instead.

We stayed here in the Castle and wanted a quick bite. The fish and Chips are the best in Ireland! We had them along with our dark ale by the fire place. It was so romantic. Our servers were the best and just had a great time. Love this pub!

Good selection of beers, wines to go with bar food, which was delicious and plentiful. Tables a bit wobbly, and bar can get crowded, especially on Sundays from 12 until 4-ish, but worth enduring as food is good. Service very cheerful and friendly. Recommended for either lunch on a Sunday or a bar snack in the evening.

Right there in Clontarf Castle, Knights Bar offers delicious fish and chips, as well as sandwiches. And the portions are large. Service is friendly and the ambience is much like a pub. The best part is that once you're full, if you're fortunate enough to be staying at the castle, you get to go up to your room and fall... More
