Stayed at Clontarf castle hotel and enjoyed our first Guinness in Ireland in the Knights bar. Pricing was reasonable for a pub and the food menu was comprehensive and of a good quality. The atmosphere aligns with the hotel being medieval and they have bay windows where you can enjoy drinks with a view.

After a long day of enjoying the beauty of Ireland, one can come and rest and relax in a very well stocked bar that serves high quality meals that reach way above the normal fare of a bar. The evening ice cream offering is a hoot and a must do splurge!

My experience with restaurants located in a hotel isn't great, normally expensive and not very good. Knights Bar is a fine pub with great food, interesting beers all at a price you'd expect to pay in a Dublin pub. Highly recommended!

We ate here while staying at Clontarf Castle and absolutely loved it. They had live Celtic music every night and the pub style menu was very good.

We decided to bring my elderly father here for the carvery lunch to celebrate his 83Rd birthday. Having queued and gotten our lunch, we discovered that there were no tables available.

Danny and Argenio led us in the right direction to some great beverages and authentic Irish food. Most people always disregard the hotel bar for food and only turn to it for a pre game spot before hitting the real deal... NOT THE CASE HERE! Fish n chips and beef pot pie were outstanding, along with some friendly advice on... More

We asked the waiter to taste one of the local beers, he brought out samples of all 3, and good thing he did because we each liked a different one! Our food was on point.

Staying at the Clontarf Castle and the restaurants and bars are great places to eat and spend time to wind down after touring the city. We avoid eating breakfast buffets and the Knights Bar accommodated us for a light breakfast meal. The better part was the evening when the bar comes alive. It got too busy and there was a... More

I loved the overall feel of this bar: old wood, heavy drapes, beautiful artwork. It fits well in the overall scheme of the hotel. The food was wonderful. Everything was the right temp, expertly prepared, and tasted delectable. The prime rib melted in my mouth. Delicious! Service was friendly and helpful. Drinks were delivered quick and tasted perfect.
