We generally stay at the Castle when in Dublin, mainly because of the good sized family rooms and its proximity to the centre of Dublin and its sights. We were impressed by the breakfasts, but found reception dismissive and the room was not serviced while we were there (two nights). On check out I asked for a taxi to be...

We stayed at the Castle Hotel for 3 nights. The moment I walked into the lobby, I loved the place. The décor is old but I like "old". The front desk workers made us feel welcomed. They suggested sights to see and which days they are open. The morning we checked out, they made our cab arrangements to the airport....

Stayed here for two nights and was impressed with welcoming staff. Great breakfast on offer and a good bar, with well priced drinks. Rooms were reasonably sized and a comfortable bed. Staff were good at offering local information and suggestions for places to visit and eat out.

We stayed at the Castle Hotel for two nights after coming off a week tour of Ireland. Our room was on the second floor. It was comfortable enough but too warm. Not sure why a heavy duvet for bedding is needed this time of year. We faced New Denmark Street and it was a bit noisy with the window open....

This hotel is a great location to walk down to all the sights of Dublin yet far enough way that it is not too busy with people and traffic. They had great live music at this hotel so after a long day you can have a drink and listen to some great tunes. It didn't go too late into the...
