Excellent Hotel

We totally enjoyed our stay at the Clontarf Castle, The Staff were very friendly and went out of their way to help from check in to Chamber maid with directions and advice on best area to shop. If I had 1 bad point would be that we had a very noisy night due to a Wedding reception being held underneath our bedroom. But the food is well cooked and presented well. The rooms were very clean & well maintained. We would recommend this Castle to anyone wishing to be close enough to Dublin centre but far enough out on the coast road to enjoy the sea air....



Possibly the one hotel I have ever stayed at that I would love to revisit. Fabulous building, wonderful location! Loved it. Thank you!...


A real gem on the Emerald Isle

As a business traveller, this is an excellent hotel only 7km from the city centre. On this occasion I was there on a long weekend and have no qualms in recommending it....



We choose this Hotel to celebrate my husbands 50th birthday. We were delighted by everything this hotel had to offer. It`s beauty, character, ambience, bars, food, service and location were all excellent. My husband travels internationally and stays in many hotels so the Clontarf Castle was a wonderful choice as it offered him something different. `Different` can be hard to find but this hotel offered historical charm, with a fitting interior design to mark a contemporary, yet, period feel. We found it very easy to take public transport and there is also a wonderful promenade walk along the shore into Dublin. Thank you to Robert, on booking, for looking after my requests to make this stay special for my special husband. We will be back and will recommend this to our friends and family....


Very clean, comfortable and friendly staff
