The Castle Hotel was an enjoyable location for a weekend in Dublin. Check in was very quick, the room, was average size for a single and had everything I needed for my stay. There was a nice TV in the room but only had 6 channels which in this digital age was surprising. The only thing I would say against the room was that the guest in the room above me seemed to like getting up very early and walking all around the room. The creaking floorboards were annoying and did disturb my sleep. Other than that the room was very quiet and there was no late late noise to be heard at all. The hotel is just north of the top end of O'Connell Street and there was a 15 minute walk to reach the river Liffey. However, all the attractions of the Northside were only 10 minutes away. Croke Park is also only 15 minutes away. Breakfasts in the hotel were a bit hectic and I had the usual problem when travelling alone of finding my table occupied when returning from the buffet. The food was fine and set me up for the rest of the day.
Nice bar in the hotel with live music at the weekends. Surprisingly, the price of a pint of Guinness was the cheapest I paid all weekend.
