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.

Quaint, quirky, gem in the heart of Dublin, lots of original features, great location. The staff are lovely, welcoming and engaging, if you're lucky enough to meet Fionn, the hotel owner, then you'll be meeting a true gent who is knowledgeable, friendly and charming. And don't waste time eating out as the food in the Vault restaurant is delicious The evening atmosphere with the entertainment is not to be missed Loved our stay thank you all

Good hotel with a breakfast in central Dublin within an easy walking distance to many of the Dublin attractions. Abbey at the front desk was very helpful with booking me a taxi when I needed it. The only problem I had was the noise from the courtyard.

This is a beautiful family owned hotel. The breakfast was fresh, delicious and plentiful. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable. The staff were friendly and incredibly helpful. We really liked the location. There was so much you could walk to and we also took a cab to some sights. We enjoyed the live music and Irish dancing at the bar at night.

I had no hot water during my 2 night stay so had to take a cold shower. I also had to call down each night to get the heat turned on in the room. The second night I had to call twice and wait an hour. While I found the staff nice, lack of heat and hot water ruined my experience. Upon checkout I was advised to send an email to management which I did. No one ever responded to my email. For this reason I would advise you to book elsewhere.

We stayed here for 4 nights. The room was small and cramped. It was very noisy- we could hear everything outside from traffic to people talking to the garbage truck. We could also hear the guests above us- walking, dropping things, talking. The doors close loudly (it sounds like you’re slamming them). The front desk staff doesn’t acknowledge you unless you’re standing right in front of them- their heads are always down. The continual breakfast was rather disappointing. I was going to try the hot breakfast too but they only had 1 server taking orders and seating people. I got tired of waiting. It was a disappointing experience overall.

I would look elsewhere. To avoid this being a totally negative review, here are some pros --- the hotel is centrally located and offers a breakfast (it is pretty mediocre but will get the job done) and has live music and dancing at the hotel bar/restaurant, which is very nice. It also seemed clean and safe. However, I would suggest that folks book elsewhere or avoid booking the Mews buildings. The Harry Clarke Mews apartments are advertised by the hotel as self catering stables and coach houses that have been converted into miniature apartments. The description of the location of the Mews on the hotel's website makes it seem like these are separate apartments that are part of the hotel. However, the Mews are located behind the hotel in a separate building in the parking lot next to trash bins. The staff did not help us carry our luggage to the apartment and seemed preoccupied during our check in. There does not appear to be an elevator to the Mews cottage, the entry way was filled with the hotel's linen and towel storage, and the heat was not on in the apartment when we arrived in it. We had to call the front desk to ask them for help with the heating and hot water which eventually worked. However, you would expect a hotel of this caliber to have the heat turned on and hot water running when guests arrive. The unit we stayed in also did not have a kitchenette or any cooking supplies, so it is unclear to me why the hotel promotes this as a self catering apartment. The rooms are also small, which is fine for two people, but again makes me question the practicality of this kind of arrangement if it is promoted as a self catering apartment for larger groups. Overall, I would save your money and look elsewhere. If you did happen to book here, I am sure your stay will be fine but could certainly be better given the price.

So disappointed with this hotel. Their actions turned a fun get away with family into a mainly sleepless nightmare. There was a problem with the heating in the room, number 124, and I was treated as though it was my fault. After a sleepless night, I insisted on moving for the second night as they couldn't fix the problem and this was agreed to reluctantly. I have tried to take these issues up with the hotel since being home and four days on from my email to them no response has been received. Shocking. We will definitely be avoiding this place in future. Pity that it gives wonderful Dublin a poor reputation.

Stayed here for just one night - we had been to a wedding and decided to have one night in Dublin before flying home. Hotel very comfortable and clean. Staff very polite. Only stayed here for the night sadly so experience much of the hotel. We did have lunch and it was very nice. We had an early flight back to Heathrow so we asked for a takeaway’ option and they obliged.

We celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary with a trip to Ireland. Our son met us there and booked a room at the Castle Hotel too. The hotel is extremely charming with warm, inviting sitting rooms complete with beautiful antique furniture. The hotel room was immaculate and cleaned everyday by an efficient housekeeping staff. We had the choice of a full Irish breakfast or continental breakfast every morning. Both meal choices were included in the daily room fee and both were excellent! The front desk hotel staff were available 24 hrs/day and offered friendly, professional assistance with any of our needs. The live music offered nightly in the hotel restaurant was incredibly fun and enjoyable; authentic Irish pub music. I cannot praise this “gem” enough for its charm and unforgettable stay!
