For my final hotel in Europe I chose this place to stay in Dublin for eight nights after a long sojourn in Italy and France. The hotel lies in several old private row homes which are quite old and interesting with period furniture. The old wooden stairs squeaked a little as I descended but a modern elevator is available. I stayed on the second floor in a very quiet and comfortable room with a nice bed and free WiFi. My room had free tea and coffee and an electric hot water heater which worked great. A plentiful decent breakfast (included) is served downstairs from 7 to 10 am and the servers are very nice. The porridge and Irish bacon are very tasty. The bar and restaurant in the cellar (The Vaults) is open at night and local musicians play Irish tunes on several nights. I confirmed that the people of Dublin are very friendly and helpful after being told the same by many people that I met before I arrived. I enjoyed my stay here at the Castle Hotel very much. Attached a pix of the cute sign in the hallway outside my room.
