I definitely recommend you guys to book and stay at the Clontarf Castle in Dublin for a couple of nights. It's clean, comfortable and has a nice staff. Free wifi and walking distance from places you can go to for food. It has a pub and the design of the hotel really nice. Free WiFi too. I enjoyed it

We checked in and the hotel was very busy, Tina waited on us and we were treated like the only customers she had, she helped us book a taxi for an early morning trip and provided valuable information for our stay. The hotel is very clean and fresh, yet you can still feel the castle surrounding you the rooms are... More

What an amazing place! Beautiful setting for afternoon tea to celebrate my daughter's 21st birthday. Service was excellent and a special mention for our server Michelle who was extremely friendly and helpful. Presentation of food was wonderful with savoury and desserts served separately on wooden stands. Fantastic food and teas served over two hours. Even took a doggy bag home!... More

Outstanding experience, highlighted by superb staff - friendly and helpful. Easy car park with no charge a big plus. Great running venue nearby on the seawall. Hotel restaurant was superb - best meal we had in Ireland.

Can't say enough about the pleasantness of the staff at the Clontarf Castle; its their mission to make your stay enjoyable. The rooms are comfortable and spacious with four-poster beds. NOTE: this is not antique furniture the hotel has regiments of the facade that was once a castle; however, they do well with creating a "castle like atmosphere" from the... More

Lovely hotel, very good staff and lovely food! Just remember that it's quite far out from the centre! The traffic can be quite heavy getting back and from there! The place is steeped in history and is a great get away. Great breakfast and the Knights bar did great food and drinks!

I would highly recommend this hotel. The location was about 15 minutes to the City Center, so for some that might be far, but the location was nice. This hotel is grand, from the moment you drive up. The rooms were very clean and the bed was very comfortable. Breakfast was amazing! We enjoyed dinner and drinks in the restaurant,... More

Be prepared for a preview of medieval surroundings while modern appointments comfort your stay. From the grounds, to the breakfast buffet, to the front desk staff, to the comfy well-stocked pub, everything about Clontarf was first-rate. I would recommend the hotel retain a larger supply of Euros on the weekends for those that need currency exchange when the banks are... More

Hotel is spectacular as part of an old castle with very modern accommodations. Location is a little outside city center, but convenient to airport. Nice bar and restaurant and short walk to the waterfront.
