Clontarf Castle Hotel
Ranked #3 of 150 Hotels in Dublin
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 December 2017

I have stayed many times at Clontarf Castle for business. All in all an excellent hotel and if you like to stay somewhere different to the generic 4 star hotels this is for you as the decor is fantastic - a blend of Medieval Cosy Chic , some fantastic pieces of furniture and art adorn the place ......as to room, spot on... very comfortable bed ,well equipped with toiletries, soft towels (expresso maker) , excellent flat screen with good user interface including the ability to mirror ipad / smartphone to screen and generally very cosy furnishings that entice you to stay in and relax for the evening. Food good (not excellent) however breakfast spread very good (while you can order baked beans from kitchen would suggest that these be part of self service buffet line up.) Staff warm & professional and while a spa /pool would be a plus this is a hotel that has mastered chic and Scandinavian "hygge" that cosy feeling you get at Christmas around a log fire, mulled wine and candles- a real stress buster 10 minutes from city center.

Room Tip: A bath is not a given, some room only have a shower .. if required best to ask. Wifi strong, free an...

This hotel is amazing and the staff went above and beyond to make sure our stay was perfect. Wife and I stayed several nights celebrating our 30 year wedding anniversary. The dinning staff is very proud of the food they serve. We had dinner and breakfast every morning in the dinning room and it was very good. No issues at all with our room. What made the trip and stay the best was the staff. If you need anything they made sure you got it. Just ask once and it was done with a smile and friendly attitude. Could not ask or expect more.
