Dublin is a vibrant, wonderfully friendly city and Castle Hotel a great base for our stay. A slightly rambling old building with an interesting history and everything you need for a comfortable stay. Our 3rd floor room was small but cosy, with windows that opened, and well appointed fixtures and fittings. Be aware that the toilet was located in a very narrow space, go for a deluxe room if you want to be guaranteed more space. Our bedroom faced the main street with a constant flow of traffic and city sounds; we rather liked the atmosphere. Ear plugs might be a good idea for some. In the main staff were very welcoming, friendly and helpful; the exception being some of the Reception Team who were somewhat detached. Although helpful when questions were asked a little more interaction would have made for a more welcoming atmosphere. Breakfast was good and other food on offer was of a high standard at reasonable prices. All in all a very enjoyable place to stay....
