Where to begin...., Quality, simply quality. Outstanding hotel, perfect blend of old and new. We had a short three day honeymoon here, sadly Christmas drew our stay short, wanted to and could have stayed longer. Friendly, attentive staff, who took time to make your stay pleasurable. Michael Byrne, hotel concierge, Dympna, head waitress in the Knights Bar and Yolanda from the Fareinheit restaurant, who not only remembered room numbers, but names also. All made our stay a very personal experience, many thanks to them. Our room was comfortable, and functional, and for the time of year, noise was not an issue. We are most certainly returning to the Castle next year (2013) and aim to take close friends with us, to enjoy the delights of Clontarf castle.

I had the pleasure of staying at the Clontarf Castle Hotel in Dublin recently. The beds where great and the venue was so pleasant.
I found the staff so helpful and the concierge Michael to be very informitave re what was on in town to see he was also very entertaining. a pleasure to chat with. The front of house receptionist I think his name was luke was so helpful and I really appreciated his speedy delivery of my requests he definately went above and beond the call.
It was so festive at the Christmas time of year

thank you all for a most enjoyable stay

Room Tip: there is a lovely mezanine on the second floor where you can sit and read close to your room and still over look the hotel and a lovely japanese atrium garden.

Would highly recommend this hotel. Outstanding staff, great restaurant, exceptional breakfast. Easy access to city center. We got a great midweek package for E199. This hotel was a highlight of our Ireland trip. There was an outstanding mix of older medieval looks with the castle and outstanding amenities as well. Would point any friends this direction.

Room Tip: Consider avoiding rooms close to staircase. Noise does carry.

Wow! This is what I call impressive.I real life castle to sleep in! They have actually blended old with new perfectly here. Modern rooms/bathrooms mixed with beautiful old stone walls and staircases to admire here there and everywhere in public areas. Lovely staff who gave a warm Irish welcome and who always had time for a little chat to see how your day had been. The breakfast was delicious and the Guinness even better! Nice quiet location but not far from the city center which was easy to get to by bus or taxi. A real experience and certainly a place I would love to stay at again. I just wish I´d taken more pictures.

Brought my dad over from south africa, the decor in the hotel is straight out of A Night's Tale, suits of armor, a dungeon, grand piano in the foyer, beautiful modern funky tapestries on the walls.

It has the setting and elegance to be very elite, but you are made to feel right at home. Exceptional staff. The Knights Bar dinner menu is off the charts yummy, and Michael as concierge with his friendly chatty approach steals the show :) highly recommended
