Overall, I loved the place. The old and new were a harmonious mix, which has been lacking in some other castle hotels. The breakfast was absolutely fantastic and more than most could handle. There was everything imaginable and it was high quality. However, unless you have the B&B rate, you would pay 23 euros for it. I enjoyed exploring the hotel and had a good meal when I ordered room service. I would stay here again, though I usually prefer more remote settings. It is a wonderful place to stay when touring Dublin.

Dear Guest,

Firstly I would like to thank you for your review on tripadvisor, your review is much appreciated.
I am delighted to hear that you enjoyed your visit.

The old and new harmonious mix is due to our €10 million interior renovation. While we have still maintained the original 12th century castle 'feel', we have also incorporated the luxuries of a four star deluxe property.

On bealf of all the team here at Clontarf Castle, we very much look forward to your return.

Kind Regards,
Jennifer McNulty

we have just returned from a wonderful weekend stay in Dublin, to make the break feel special we decided to book this castle, with excellent reviews and honest opinions it looked too good to be true. We were not dissapointed atall during our stay, the staff were excellent, the hotel was exceptionally clean and welcoming, all the staff were very helpful and informative. We upgraded for the larger room as a treat, the rooms are totally modernised with built in plasma TVs, internet access, trouser press, hairdryer, tea making facilities and a clever telephone system advising the weather conditions. The staff were very helpful with local information including bus information. It cost on average 15 euro to get a taxi into town, we mastered the busses and got the 130 outside the hotel into town for just 1.70 euro each. All the bus drivers were very helpful, we even found our way to the Guinness Factory without getting lost, it really is very simple. We reccommend you see Temple Bar area early evening as later means getting served harder especially when football and rugby on the same day!! I would deffinately reccommend this hotel to my friends and family.

The castle is a really cool looking hotel. The inside isn't necessarily any different from a normal hotel except for the couple of tin soldiers in the main lobby. The rooms are very clean, and comfortable. There were only a couple of things that I wasn't happy about; one was that the bed didn't have a sheet in between you and the comforter, it was just the comforter on top of you. The reason why I didn't like this, was because if you get hot during the night you have an option of comforter or nothing at all. Also, I fee more piece of mind knowing there was a sheet because I know they wash the sheets more than the comforters in most hotels. The other thing I wasn't happy about was the shower. While the shower had good pressure, it didn't ever get hot hot. It only got warm hot. Which might not be a big deal to some, but thats just my personnel preference. Overall it was nice.

Has all the facilities you would expect from a four star, but surprisingly for such a historic building, lacking in atmosphere and a little dark and dreary. Didn't get the wine we ordered until we checked out, and the staff always seemed to be busy and innaproachable.

Stayed: May 2008
