Located in Dublin city centre, just two minutes from O'Connell St, The Castle Hotel is within minutes walk of everything that the city has to offer including Temple Bar, Croke Park, The Gate Theatre, Dublin Writers Museum, James Joyce Cultural Centre and the principal shopping districts. Boasting grand staircases, magnificent crystal chandeliers and marble fireplaces, The Castle Hotel provides guests with a glimpse into the Georgian era while staying in touch with the demands of the modern world. We offer single, double, twin, triple and family rooms, all are en-suite and elegantly decorated in warm tones to offer both comfort and style to our guests. Our converted 19th Century wine cellars are the setting for the Castle Vaults Bar and Restaurant which serves a pre-theatre and an a la carte menu daily. The bar stocks a wide variety of craft beers, wines and spirits to please the most discerning of tastes. Each weekend the hotel offers live entertainment with traditional Irish music playing in the bar in the evenings from 9-11pm. The hotel has its own secured, gated private car park at a cost of €15 per night and the 747 Airlink airport shuttle stops just a 1 minute walk away. As far as local attractions go, Croke Park, The Hugh Lane Art Gallery, The Garden of Remembrance, The Abbey Theatre, The Gate Theatre and the James Joyce Cultural Centre are all just a short walk away.

Anyone looking for a soulless experience of a hotel that could be anywhere in the world should avoid coming to a place that prides itself on individual charm and hospitality All the staff without exception - housekeeping included- could not have been more helpful or courteous

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights, celebrating a friends birthday. Having stayed in Dublin twice before I was impressed with the value for money at the Castle Hotel! Just a short walk from the air-link stop and an easy walk to O’Connell Street and Temple Bar - top location.

Does this hotel have a gym/fitness centre?
Yes. There was a small gym in the lower level when we stayed last summer. It had a limited number of machines but we were the only people I ever saw using it so it wasn’t a problem. The front desk also gave us ideas for running routes.

The Loft is probably the best room — it offers privacy and plenty of space. It’s well appointed and just right for the occasion.

That I don't know. There is plenty to see in Dublin. You could email the hotel you are staying at and ask them and most of the places will get you tickets for what you want to do.

"towards the back away from the lifts and passers by. I heard no other guests at night just close neighbours on check out morning."
"Ground floor rooms are more spacious"
"Higher floors do have less noise ,however some rooms closer to the entrance can be a little noisier."
"If you're traveling alone, make sure to look for single occupancy rooms to save money!"
"Rooms on the court side are quieter"
