We recently visited Clontarf Castle for our friends' wedding, and we stayed at the hotel for two nights. It was simply stunning! We spent the whole day there for the wedding, and were struck by how well coordinated the day was, and how friendly the staff were. They were always friendly and happy to help. The venue itself was gorgeous... More

Clontarf Castle is always excellent, always beautiful. You are greeted by the Gatehouse and then a nic e trre-lined avenue to the Castle itself. Plenty of free parking unlike many Dublin hotels. Genuine Castle feel throughout the property. Close to Dublin Central and Howth.

The hotel room was clean and tidy, however I was put in a room on the top floor that had a joining door to the next room. Despite the door being shut, I could... More
