Throughly excellent , wish we could have stayed longer. We would highly recommend your establishment to anyone visiting Dublin. Thanks for our early check in as we were both feeling jet lagged. Also, the live entertainment was excellent . Unfortunately we are unable to recall his name.

Although this hotel is situated on the outskirts of Dublin, 15mins by bus to the centre.This was a first class experience from the moment you enter the Castle driveway, the grounds are spectacular. Rooms excellent, food excellent, the cost I don't know as my Wife paid, but well worth the visit.
