Stayed over last weekend the drive down from the North was easy and the parking at the hotel free and ample. Walking into the hotel is amazing the old castle is all around and the modern reception marries into the building elegantly. Reception staff were professional and friendly. Room was compact bed was very comfortable all services were available flat screen TV wi fi kettle filims and ironing facilities. Ample hanging space in the warbrobe and drawer space.The amazing headboard which looked like tiles had low lighting coming through it.Dined in the Fahrenheit Grill on the first night dinner was tasty and served by friendly staff. Knights Bar on the second night was equally tasty and live music played.Walked to the bus and in10 minutes we were in the heart of Dublin no car worries.Got taxi back much later. Overall a great hotel to stay at previously we always stayed in Dublin centre however will probably stay outside of the hussle and bussle of Dublin centre in the future and Clontarf Castle will be the perfect location will be back.
