I chose Clontarf Castle for our last night in Ireland, spend the last night at a castle. I was not disappointed. It is rather difficult to find, esp at night since I couldn't see any signs,but thanks to the helpful man at the parking garage in Dublin we found our way. The place is just stunning. It has the original castle walls and they have added on hotel rooms to the rear of the building. Some of my companions didn't think this represented a true castle, and the rooms were the most modern we had on our trip, but I'm still glad we stayed here. The castle is over 1,000 yr old, and will be celebrating the 1,000 yr anniversary of the Battle of Clontarf. You can see the original walls and floors in the lobby, bar and lounge area, they were just stunning. The rooms were beautiful, the beds were great altho they roll rather fast and are higher than normal. We ate dinner in the restaurant and the food was good. We needed reservations which the front desk kindly made for us. I would most definately stay there again if I'm in the Dublin area. Just fantastic.
