Great room, great receptionists, lift to rooms, clean and well run. A wee bit far from the centre of Dublin, but the walk will do you good. Firthermore, I'm embarrassed to say, its the only hotel I've stayed at in last 20 years where I could smoke in the room. (I dont even do that at home!)
Breakfast was a bit of a rush with waitresses running around trying to serve everyone. (And succeeding of course). The food was good and though I had mostly toast the plates looked full and tasty too.
What endeared me to Castle Hotel most was the fact that not only was the Wifi service excellent, fast, efficient and free of charge, but the hotel, as policy, blocks websites that are considered racist. One, a particularly virulent antsemitic site was unavailable to residents! I thought it a brave and especially human move on the part of the hotel and it certainly reflects positively on the management. Good for you at Castle Hotel!
