I arranged to meet a friend at Clontarf Castle for a drink and a quick catch up while passing through Dublin. I had the dog in the car and after we were settled in by the huge fire in the foyer area I asked if they would mind if I got the dog to sit beside us. The concierge said he didn't mind as it was fairly quiet but would check with the duty manager and who also gave us the thumbs us.
The concierge on duty was great, a really lovely personality to add to the hotel as was the duty manager! The dog got lots of attention. I might be bias but she's a lab and just seemed to complete the picture stretched out in front of the large fireplace. She even got her photo taken by some other guest.
I stayed here a four or five years ago and it was a nice experience then also.
We stayed a lot longer than we planned and had a lovely evening. Thanks for being dog friendly on this occasion. I've found it's quite rare for Dublin.
