Reviewed 11 September 2011

We celebrated our wedding in Clontarf Castle in July. We chose the hotel from abroad after searching online and looking at over 200 hotels all across Ireland. Clontarf Castle was the perfect venue as it offere a selection of amazing rooms which suited our dinner/lounge after-party concept. All the planning was done from abroad however this was no issue as their website provides great 360 views of the rooms to give contect for planning, and their wedding coordinator was fantastic at answering all queries. On the day itself, everything was perfect, all the staff were truly amazing. Numerous guests complimented on how they were so attentive to any little query they had. We had our ceremony in the Viking Room, a drinks reception in the Knights Bar, dinner for 67 in the Fahrenheit Grill and the party with traditional Irish band and DJ was held in Indigo. To finish, we had a sing song in the residents bar until approx 4am. The food and service was excellent, the accommodation beautiful and the decor is a perfect blend of tradition meets modern. We highly rate Clontarf Castle as a wedding venue and look forward to returning to Ireland to visit again!

I got to feel like a princess for my last night in Ireland. We mostly stayed in cheaper budget hotels and b&bs, but we got a great deal here and decided to splurge. I desperately wanted to stay in a castle while in Ireland, and I wasn't disappointed in this one. It's a lovely spot. The lobby and bar and everything are very atmospheric - suits of armor, fireplaces, etc. The room was small, but cozy. We took the bus into the center of Dublin quite easily and it was only a short ride. We even at dinner in the restaurant - which was the only part that was a tad disappointing. It was pretty expensive and the food and service were just ok. We enjoyed less expensive meals we had elsewhere much more. I wish we'd tried the bar food instead. But overall, a lovely place stay. And considering the location and comfort, a great deal.
