We needed accommodation for a family visit and The Castleknock Hotel was in close proximity. The hotel is easy to find, good safe parking and plenty of spaces, at least when we were there. The rooms are modern, comfortable, light, airy and we were given one with a great view overlooking the adjacent golf course. Unfortunately the spa and gym... More

We stayed at Castleknock Hotel for one night whilst we were visiting Dublin. The hotel is located about 25 minutes from Dublin city centre which was perfect for us. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable. We chose to stay in the hotel for dinner that night. While dinner was lovely, the service was fairly slow. The waiter was apologetic... More

Was there at the end of last year, on a business trip and had the pleasure of eating and spending some time in the golf club. Did not have time to play, but the restaurant itself is much better to dine at, than in the hotel.

I visited the Vue Restaurant last Sunday. I booked a table for 2:30, we dined on their €23.95 4 course menu which is served from 12-6:30. The starters we had were vegetable soup and Caesar salad which we could not fault. The mains and desserts did not disappoint either. Please note that a lot of reviews here are for the... More

Bad experience made worse by staff that did not seem to care…. Myself, my husband, and 2 children called into the Castleknock hotel yesterday lunch time for something quick to eat on our way past. We had stopped off at the Anglers Rest but they were fully booked up. I cant begin to describe the disappointment i felt leaving the... More

Played 18 holes here for the first time, absolutely lovely course that's very well kept. Challenging without being too hard. Also only €25 for a round. Would recommend, will be back

I have to admit, I had some doubts about going here at first, when invited by family. Having had quite a dreadful experience some time back in the adjoining hotel. However, this time, at the Vue restaurant, overlooking the beautiful golf course and the real Liffey Valley (not the shopping centre) it was a very positive experience. My first impressions... More

We'd visited this golf club for dinner a few years back and had the best steak on the stone I've ever tasted. However have visited twice in last few weeks and have disappointed in the food. I've had lamb and the houose burger. Meat was overcooked completely each time, was bland and you got the impression that chef was going... More

Tonight we dined in the golf club for the second time in a month, and both times were an absolute treat. The view, from The Vue is amazing. You could stare out of the windows all night. Saturday has a set menu, and I cheekily asked to substitute a main from the al a carte menu, no trouble what so... More

I visited Castleknock Hotel and Golf Club on my own early last Wednesday evening. I had cod and chips, which was very very mediocre. Nothing like the same meal recently in Clontaft Castle, in which the fish was SOO very light and really fresh. However, Olivier, the French waiter was very kind and engaging and turned a boring meal into... More
