Travellers' Choice
Castleknock Hotel, an award winning 4 star hotel is located right on the doorstep of Dublin City, set in lush grounds with an onsite golf course, beside the Phoenix Park. Specialising in corporate stays, conferences, golf breaks, weekend weddings and relaxed family and leisure visits, the hotel is just 15 minutes from Dublin city centre and 20 minutes from Dublin Airport with easy access on the M50, but feels like a world away from the bustle of the city with its tranquil countryside setting. Just outside Castleknock village, this stylish but informal and relaxed hotel is a spacious, modern hotel which, with its expansive views over the golf course and surrounding countryside, makes a delightfully pleasant base for both business and leisure guests. With an 18-hole golf course, award-winning restaurants and welcoming bars, an innovative meeting and events offering, substantial sports screens, outdoor patio and children's playground, there is something for everyone to enjoy.

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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

I have stayed here on more than one occasion and have never been let down. The beds are really comfortable and the shower is lovely. I have eaten in the bar and restaurant and as far as hotel eateries go , it js far above average and really enjoyable. They do the best pornstar martini too! There is often live music on the weekend and the lobby has a lovely atmosphere to it. The hotel is always busy and there can be queues but it is managed particularly well by the reception staff who are informative and friendly. It is a family friendly hotel which provides amenities for children and lovely surrounding areas. I have not yet visited the spa but it is always busy and booked up so that should speak for itself. The pool and jacuzzi area is gorgeous and I always leave feeling relaxed. It is the kind of hotel I will always return to due to its consistency. Special mention to Elaine & Mairead at reception who were both amazing! We will be back soon

Was placed near wedding party so could not get a good sleep during the night due to running up and down the corridor hotel staff had to come and talk to the guests, the next morning was woke early as the wedding party decided to leave all their doors open so then could walk from room to room,check in experience was awkward as we paid for the executive suite and at check in I asked the concierge for a specific room she answered no you only paid for the executive suite the room you want it deluxe I would of happily paid extra as we had our honeymoon here but the option was not given

Myself and my friend stayed into the castle knock hotel a while back when I was pregnant and we had a lovely time. We decided to pay a visit to the restaurant today with my two year old son and I have to say I was very impressed with the kids menu and the healthy options they had, it was a good alternative to the standard chicken nuggets and chips on most kids menus. My son ordered the Bolognese and it had some nice hidden veggies in it too, he really enjoyed it... However, I was disappointed in the quality of my main course. I ordered a Thai green curry and although the chicken was succulent and tasty I was unimpressed by what felt like a sponge texture that was mostly pumped with water to give it extra moister. Water pumped chicken to me is cheap and I don't expect this quality from a 22euro main course. My friend ordered Wings and truffle fries, the wings were good but the fries were drowned in truffle oil. My expectation of truffle fries is some nice crispy skin on fries with a sprinkle of parmesan cheese and truffle again I was just very unimpressed with the standard and quality for the price. I know I should have complained at the time which would be the right thing to do but my toddler was getting impatient and we had to leave. I hope that this can be improved as we hope to visit again.

Hi Sj J, Thank you for your review and feedback. Firstly, we are delighted your son enjoyed his meal. In terms of the feedback regarding you and your friends meal, we sincerely apologise. Having raised this issue with our management team we got to the root of your problem. On the day you dined with us, having received your feedback our head chef decided to pull the chicken fillet based dishes from the menu for the evening. It is clear we have let you down, not in any way befitting of the high standards we strive to achieve on a daily basis. As a result of the inconvenience we may have caused, we would like to invite you back to the restaurant for a better dining experience and also reimburse you for your previous visit. If you could please contact our F&B manager Andrew at andrewsherlock@chcc.ie , he will make the arrangements for you. We hope to welcome you back soon. Kind Regards, Castleknock Hotel.

We stayed for a wedding and over overall experience was good with the exception of an issue we had at breakfast where we were told certain areas were adult only. Seen as we were with children that didn’t sit quite well as we all paid our money to stay there and adults mix with kids, families etc in all other parts of the hotel who is the breakfast area any different.
