Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

County Dublin, Ireland
Beautiful hotel and decor. Friendly, helpful staff. Food and service were great. Lovely garden to sit in on a sunny afternoon. We had a family gathering with a set menu which was delishious and complimented by many people. The bed was extremely comfortable and the room a nice temperature so we had a great sleep. Would definitely recommend this hotel for a stay in Dublin.

This Castle and Hotel are amazing and are a must see! The front desk staff are friendly and fast. Our room was an upgrade and it was absolutely stunning. You must try the Fahrenheit for dinner. It has great food and our waiter Francisco was the best we had in Ireland. Don't miss this place!

Amazing hotel, great staff. Irani at the front desk was awesome to talk with and helped us out with great advice on Dublin and the area. Thank you Irani. Nice modern amenities in combination with the original aesthetic of the castle were a great blend.

The best place in Dublin. Perfect service, accommodations, drinks and food. If you want to have a proper stay or special night, this is your place. I’ve stayed at over 100 hotels and I already can’t wait to come back here. There is a “hidden” restaurant on the 3rd floor you must see.

Just home from having a few pints and dinner with my brother & sister in law. We were served by a very young lad who I subsequently found out is named Nathan. My gosh, can he pull a nice pint of Guinness. Kudos. Hilariously, we waited until he was available until we ordered a 2nd pint. I think I've found my new barman. :-)

“Royal” treatment at Clontarf Castle Hotel! From the comfortable, relaxing room to sumptuous breakfasts and delicious dinners, my stay at this beautiful castle hotel was lovely. The friendly, helpful staff at the reception and in the dining room greeted me with smiles, quickly answered questions and provided super service! I would like to mention Irani, Authar, Harry and Gustavo - there were others too, sorry I forgot all their names. These enthusiastic, especially kind employees are students from nations other than Ireland - who work at Clontarf Hotel as part of a study-work program. Bravo to the Irish Government for this excellent international program. The staff I enjoyed conversing with were from Brazil, Mexico, Greece and elsewhere. They are performing their duties so well and add to the Hotel’s wonderful atmosphere and service.
