I stayed a night in this hotel as my daughter was in the mater hospital and it was very convenient. Less than five minutes walk to Hospital. Got taxi back at night as it was late and did not take the risk of the walk. Found the hotel to be good value, location, and friendly staff, lovely breakfast.

If you want to experience all the amenities of a modern hotel, then the Castle Hotel should proberly not be your first choice, But if being surrounded by a throwback to an earlier time, you can't do any worse. The furniture and paintings throughout the reception area and puplic spaces have a wonderfully antique motiff. My room was a single twin - very basic and bit lacking in comfort, but I wasn't in Dublin to live in a hotel room. The room had a hospital room size TV on a stand above the foot of the bed, without a remote and the room was missing the basic amenities like an alarm clock and hotel stationary. If I stayed here again, I would pay the small fee for an upgrade. But the WIFI worked and the shower always had hot water. Full Irish breakfast is available the next morning, served quickly and attentively and dinner is available in the Castle Vaults - with live music several nights a week, and the food was always great. Reception staff was always friendly and willing to assist. Great location too, right above O'connell Street.

Stayed in the Walton side off the building. Room was warm and comfortable for 3 of us.
We dined in the restaraunt on the first night and we found the food quite good and presented nicely.
On the second Night we arrived back at the hotel a bit late due to visiting friends. even though the kitchen was closing the bar man was able to get chef to fix something for us.
The entertainment on both Saturday Night and Sunday night was good and enjoyable.
Now Breakfast, whilst the staff were runnining around extrremely busy they remained polite and as helpful as they could be.
We had full Irish on the first morning and this was enough once eaten.
The next 3 mornings we each had different items on our plates to suit our tastes as we did not want full breakfasts on every morning and this presented no problems.
I can understand the fustration of the customer saying stay away but this is unfair as all the staff are attentive and can only work with what they have and they done themselves proud. Serve a full hotel of guests with breakfasts in 2 hours and most of the customers probably didnt appear till the last hour.
The Cereal Bar might. need a little TLC but thats all.
The building, well it is a Georgian building so it will have its creaks and groans but that only adds to the charm.
2 adults. 1 13year old child, 4 nights Bed and Breakfast. 426 euros. 5 minutes from City Centre, I call that good value for money.
Will we be back. Yes. (2016)

Right next to the center of Dublin. Near all the shops, bars and restaurants. Easy walking.
Very friendly staff. Big room and good beds.
Nice bar as well.
Not far from the Wicklow Mountains. Very nice area to walk.

The place is clean with great Reception n Bar Crew..however the breakfast staff need training.
1. Eating breakfast.,staff drops tray of untensils next to me to make the table opposite!!!
2. This next one is y i had 1 breakfast in 7. we asked for milk after the coffee had arrived,...the staff picked up the jug from a recently vacated table refilled it in my full view from the machine and presented it to us!!!!

Beds..more sunk than Davy Jones Locker

Water pressure.forget it if u r placed on the 4th floor

Room..nothing like the wideangle lens they use for their promo pics, give this place wide berth not worth 80 euros a night

Stayed at the Castle Hotel on a recent weekend trip to Dublin. The hotel is just off Parnell Square at the northern end of O'Connell Street, maybe 10-15 minutes walk to the centre south of the Liffey.
The hotel is clean and comfortable and although it was busy, the staff were very friendly and efficient.
It is obviously not a luxury hotel (floorboards are creaky, hot water supply is a bit temperamental and the TV in the room was a delightful throwback to the 80's) but it is a perfectly good base for exploring Dublin. We would certainly come back here again.
