Stayed here with three colleagues just for one night. So peaceful, so atmospheric. All of our reactions afterwards were the same - what a beautiful place and the service was top notch. We didn't eat there in the evening (tempted by the venison though...) but the breakfast was excellent - brilliant wide selection and all. Wry good quality. Definitely will...

Pleased with the room, with breakfast and overall stay in Clontarf. Hotel really looks like a Castle. It is surrounded by clean quite streets and Irish houses, with green grass and trees that you can definetly enjoy a walk arround.

We loved the hotel and the service was excellent. It was also easy to get a taxi or bus into town. The food was great too. This was a superb choice and is a very well managed property. Fun for adults and children alike.
