Great hotel, very friendly staff. Would come again. Beautiful castle with lots of history, 10 minute walk to the ocean. All the homes in the area have lots of character.

The area on Clontarf where I walked was along the seafront or estuary-front. The tide was out so unfortunately you could see quite a level of rubbish in the silt. I saw one bird passing plastic items which can harm birds. Not nice. On my way back to the car I spotted a bin overflowing with rubbish. Clontarf - Nice... More

Great, parks, restaurants, coastal walks and near good schools, the dart and bus routes. Situated on the east coast of Dublin, with views of bull island and Howth on the coast road, it's a quiet village very close to the city centre...only 3 miles from town.

This area appears to be one of the wealthier places in the city. I stayed at the castle hotel and walked around some. It's a really nice area and seemed really safe walking around. I enjoyed it.

Truly memorable afternoon tea experience at the Clontarf Castle Hotel. Wonderful welcome on arrival & hospitality staff were brilliant especially Michelle who looked after us throughout the afternoon. Most amazing selection of cakes/ scones, elegantly displayed.
