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.

Stayed one night, along with my adult son. The reception area was inviting and the staff were very helpful. We arrived prior to check-in time and our luggage was put into secure storage. Comfortable room and bathroom with nice toiletries and really fluffy towels. Dinner in the restaurant was good, and the gentleman who entertained us with Irish music and song added to the ambience. Good food choices and attentive waiters at dinner and the same applied to breakfast. The atmosphere was homely, rather than too corporate. Nicely furnished and decorated seating areas. My only criticism is that although the bedrooms were nice and cosy the sitting rooms were a little cool, but ok if you wore a decent sweater (I do appreciate that fuel is very expensive).

Good hotel and both the continental and irish breakfast were great. Although I missed the toast or to at least have more different kinds of bread in the continental breakfast. The rooms were great and the hallways made us feel like we were staying in Fawlty towers with their ups and downs in stairs and corners. Wonderful environment! The showers were as to expect in Ireland. Not a very good water pressure. The staff is amazing and so nice. Always with a smile and they all seem to really like their working place.

This is my third time staying at the Castle however this time I was with my daughter. The staff in all areas of the hotel are amazing and will do anything to assist with your stay. The breakfast either the cooked or continental have a great solution to choose from. The dinner downstairs with the music and dance my daughter found very entertaining with again a good solution even for the younger members of a family that visit. The room was clean and beds very comfortable. Shower pressure was good and the shower itself you had good room to move around. Hotel also has had a nice coat of paint and renovations in the restaurant)bar downstairs which adds to the charm of the hotel. Cons: As it's an older hotel and found on a main road of Dublin you will hear outside noises. The floors are like a rabbit hole so it's a little maze possibly to get to your room. Saying that the signage to your room is extremely clear. The cons in my eyes are very small and shouldn't stop you from staying in a beautiful and quaint hotel with great staff and excellent location to the centre of town

Located in the Georgian part of the city, close to all amenities, this is an understated gem of a place to stay to which I’d definitely return. The food was good, really swift and efficient service with very friendly and helpful staff. Highly recommended. A very minor point which doesn’t detract from how good this place is; apparently it frequently hosted Michael Collins and Éamon de Valera as a hideout whilst on the run during the war of independence, yet there seems no reference to this. Perhaps this could be exploited by the hotel management in order to provide another dimension to what is a real find of a place to stay.

We had a faultless stay in this fine establishment. The moment we arrived the front of house staff were excellent attentive & helpful. We stayed in the small apartments at the back of the hotel Harry Clarke Mews. What a find !! Spacious & quietly tucked away in the centre of Dublin. The breakfast choice is superb again the waiting staff were so busy but always polite & helpful. A special mention to Claudia on reception when the extra mile to sort our TV remote & find out bus information. They really fall over themselves to make the stay enjoyable. We'll done to a well oiled team.

The staff here are lovely and helpful. The hotel has great charm. However, the mattresses are horrible. I could barely sleep due to the discomfort. The walls are thin and you can hear every single bit of noise from surrounding guests and street noise. We had children staying near us and it was typically midnight before they settled down. May have been a school group. Doors slamming, loud chatter. I suppose no one reminded them there were other guests to consider. The breakfast was horrid. We ended up finding a wonderful place not terribly far away to eat.

Good Afternoon Hale -Bop I am sorry to read that you were disappointed following your recent stay. All of our beds are King Koil Club Class 4 which are used in most of the best hotels in Europe but I am sorry if this did not suit your needs. We are located in the heart of the city centre but we do have rooms available to the rear of the hotel and away from the street noise, had we been alerted to your discomfort we would have done our best to find you a different room which may have suited you better. We have 2 different options for breakfast, a continental buffet style breakfast consisting of cold meats, cheeses, yogurt, cereals, pastries & fruit etc. and we also offer a cooked full Irish breakfast which is served to your table for those guests who prefer a hot cooked traditional Irish breakfast. All of which are made from good quality ingredients, sourced locally where possible. I am sorry if neither of these options was to your taste, I would be happy to refund the cost of your breakfast if you would like to contact me we can make this arrangement. Thank you for taking the time to give your honest feedback and of course I am sorry that we did not meet your expectations on this occasion. Kindest Regards Yvonne O'Keeffe General Manager
