We had a great stay here. We loved the live music in their restaurant and had a comfortable stay in our room. Staff was accommodating and the hotel owner came down to send us safe travels. Very nice.

Irish songs by Ray Cox and dancing by Jean Kennedy give this hotel a very romantic atmosphere. Great breakfast. Maybe add some pancakes to the Sunday menu. I'm not sure if that is Irish food. Staff was very friendly. Best wishes. More...

Just home from a fabulous stay in The Castle Hotel. All staff - receptionists, cleanIng staff, waiting staff and bar staff are absolutely fabulous, really professional, helpful, kind and friendly. Even the hotel owner made a point of introducing himself and making sure I was happy. The in-house breakfasts and evening meals are tremendous, not to mention the musical entertainment every evening and the brilliant added bonus some nights of the wonderful Jean Kennedy's amazing irish dancing. So pleased I stayed here, it really added to my first visit to wonderful Dublin and is so centrally and ideally placed. I look forward to my next visit and can't recommend it highly enough. 5 stars!

The ribeye steak was really. a properly cooked steak doesn't need a lot of seasoning, the steak just with salt and pepper tasted great. you didn't even need the sauce that came with it. More...

I recently had the pleasure of staying overnight at this beautiful Georgian hotel located in the heart of the capital. The atmosphere was warm and friendly and the owner, the management and the staff could not have been more inviting or more helpful. The room was warm and comfortable and quiet, and next morning I was treated to a hearty breakfast by the lovely Alex who was the perfect hostess. Special thanks to her, to the lovely Leah on reception and to Trevor the manager. I will definitely be back! 10 out of 10. More...

We traveled with about 15 or so to Dublin in June. Since we had a mix of children and older travelers in our midst, we decided to stay north of the Liffey. The location was perfect for what we had in mind, and we were able to access all the major tourist sites (with a 15 min walk/quick bus ride) while keeping the stag/hen locations at arms' length.The place is kind of a maze, having developed over time through one-off purchases. The lobby, reception, restaurant and downstairs pub all ooze with character and class. The breakfast (included with the booking) was a huge hit with our travelers, as guests could pick anything from a full Irish to yogurts and cereal. The only slight knock was that the rooms themselves can be quite snug, but given prices in Dublin this is still great value for money. More...

The staff is very accomplished and quickly offer excellent suggestions on where to eat and drink.  After we returned exhausted from a wonderful stroll (following an 11 hour flight), the hotel vault provided wonderful Irish fold music and more than acceptable wine (we had enough Guinness and Irish whiskey for one afternoon).  Quaint old hotel in a good location with I don't know how many sofas and overstuffed chairs scattered about the many sitting rooms located up and down many interior stairways.  Parking is available if you're lucky (and we are), but you won't need it if you like to walk. We'll likely be back (although I'm not all that fond of the two twin beds). More...

The Castle Hotel is our favourite place to stay every year. My daughter Eileen and I always start and end our annual month long trip here. The staff is AWESOME, the food is great, and we just adore the Vaults with the live entertainment. For us, we look forward to arriving at the Castle every year as a kind of homecoming. We can't wait to get there and are always sad to leave. Special shout out to Hazel....she is our all time favourite server and is always ready with a smile. More...

Visited the hotel for 5 nights to celebrate my brother and sister in law turning 30 and what an amazing stay! From the minute we walked in until we left the staff couldn't do enough to ensure our stay was one to remember. Every single member of staff were friendly, helpful and always willing to go above and beyond to make sure that all our needs were taken care of. Even when we had an issue with a potential leak from an upstairs room the staff handled it quickly and efficiently. On the morning we were leaving I watched one of the guys from reception help a frail older gentleman to his room with a smile on his face and the willingness to help, it was a lovely sight to see!
The hotel itself was very nice, welcoming and decorated lovely. We ate at the hotel most nights and the food was lovely especially the pizza.
If there is one recommendation I would give to anyone staying at the hotel, it would be to take a trip downstairs to the Castle Vaults bar, where they have live music every night. This was such a highlight during our stay because It had a lovely atmosphere and each night offered something different and fun. Whilst I am talking about the Castle Vaults I would like to take this opportunity to say a special thank you to Brendan and the staff down there who every night made our stay what it was! You all worked tirelessly to ensure not only our wishes were met, but every single person in the bar were taken care of to a very high standard despite it being very busy. Even though it was busy you always seemed to have time to answer any questions we had or go that extra mile to ensure we were happy. You all made our stay what it was and we will be back for sure! To each and everyone of you thank you and keep going your doing an amazing job!

We were fortunate enough to stay at The Castle Hotel in beautiful Dublin twice on our recent trip to Ireland. It was a great location to tour the city from and your hospitality was tops. We loved that you decorated our room for my husband’s birthday celebration.
We enjoyed an excellent evening in The Castle Vaults restaurant,lovely dinner and musical entertainment.
The breakfast in the Old Music Shop restaurant is wonderful too.
Thanks for everything and should we return to Dublin we’d love to stay here again.

My review 5 STARS!! I arrived at the Castle Hotel to find that I,along with my husband and father had been swindled by a travel company out of our entire vacation package! We had lost all our money, along with all our reservations as the company had plunged into bankruptcy with NO NOTICE to us whatsoever! A rude awakening and a terrible way to begin a vacation - on my birthday nonetheless! Castle Hotel staff agreed. They made a makeshift “ situation room” for us, set us up with tea and coffe and went to work to find us rooms straight away! (Our vacation was saved, along with our money, with some quick work on our part, and amazing people helping.) Castle Hotel resurrected our vacation from the jaws of defeat. They were able to set up my husband and me in a loft, at the last minute, complete with a kitchen, that was just lovely. They never once complained about the extra time and work they had to put in to accommodate us. We were given the room rates originally offered through our travel package and The Castle Hotel honored our original rates without any argument. They happily went to work to help us with smiles all around. We were treated like family and felt very much better in a very terrible situation. I cannot say enough how their professional and kind handling of our situation saved our vacation. We were able to stay two complete nights with Castle Hotel. We dined and were entertained both evenings at the cellar bar. The bartender Joe and his gregarious nature was just what we needed to lighten our moods. We ended our stay feeling like life long friends. The Irish dancer, Jean Kennedy, even got the three of us to dance with her on the last night of our stay! If you knew my husband, you would know what a remarkable feet this was!! Castle Hotel and the staff earned every one of the of the five stars I am giving them. I will stay with them every chance I have to visit Dublin! More...

A perfect hotelYes, I said it, it was a perfect hotel for me & the kiddo that was celebrating his birthday.  I am so tired of the key card or through your phone connection key and it doesn't work and we got an actual key! !! We were in room 220, right after the elevator, which delivered a beautiful view of the church across the way.  Yes, we were upgraded due to our room type sold out (2 twin beds) to a family room, which is literally 2 rooms, 4 beds and a jack and jill bathroom!  I giggled with the bathrooms window that went from ceiling to the floor (God next door probably doesn't want to see what he has created) but does have a lovely shade for the full size window.The food is highly recommended, I got room service twice with the hamburger & chips/ BLT and the NY cheesecake...YUM!  Location is wonderful as it is by O'Connell street, with a short walk to Ha'Penny bridge, Temple Bar, Post Office (was that a Heinekin building?!?) and all the monuments (a lot of history).  Check-in and checkout was easy and this place has the most upbeat and professional staff.  Thank you and cannot wait to return next year!

Great price for the room! Old building, but clean and up to date bathrooms. Toilets were a bigger to flush and didn't work every time. Complementary breakfast was a full Eggs, sausage, etc breakfast. Window didn't close fully so we could hear everything at night. Yet the price makes it worth staying here again. I need to add I was seriously impressed when I put the "do not disturb" sign on the door and woke up to find a fresh set of towels and soaps in a bag outside of my door. More...

We stayed in The Castle Hotel last night, 4 adults&1 toddler. The hotel is made up of a number of beautifully restored Georgian buildings. Being from Dublin its seldom you get the opportunity to experience being a tourist in your home city but it was super from start to finish. The staff at the hotel could not do enough for us. The English girl on reception was exceptionally helpful. Great location. Lovely bar in The Vaults with great live music. Roy Cox belted out the classics which suprisingly my toddler slept through in his buggy ;) We also had the pleasure of meeting the owner Mr MacCumhaill, a big thank you to him and his Fianna for such an enjoyable stay!

Not a bad stay; room was a bit cold, but that's to be expected. Pub in the cellar has a good nightlife. Hotel is far from Temple Bar and Trinity. However, it's not a terrible walk. It is in an area without much in the way of restaurants, but again, not a hard walk. More...

It was magical. Our honeymoon in Ireland would not have been as wonderful as it was without our room in The Castle Hotel. It's been a couple of years now and I still dream of going back and staying where we did . The staff was so friendly, the food good, and the music perfect. After a day exploring it was honestly such a treat to come back to our hotel. I look to the day we can visit again! More...

What a cracking place to stay. Clean, excellent service and the staff amazingly friendly. Food excellent and as much as you needed or wanted. Very handy for the city centre not too far to walk. If, well when, we return to Dublin it will definitely be our preferred accommodation. Thank you. More...

The Castle is the BEST place to stay in Dublin. The rooms are quaint and comfortable, the food in the Music Room cafe and the Vault amazing! We also loved the nightly entertainment. It was a home away from home for us. We cannot thank Fionn and his wonderful staff for their kindness, generosity, hospitality and friendship during a very tough time for our family. Our flight home was long but without any problems. We are all happy to be home safely. We miss you already, and hope our paths cross again one day. Warmest regards from the Pettett family from Melbourne � More...

My husband and I only spent 4 nights here and I thought it was fabulous.  Rooms were comfortable.  The staff was amazing and very helpful with everything.  We only ate breakfast there - which was a big variety and very delicious.  They even accommodated my husband and myself when we had an early day trip and opened the kitchen early for us.  The location is great as we were able to walk around and site see, or jump easily on a bus tour.  Across the street from the writers museum.  The pub was a lot of fun too, very cozy with the traditional music.  I would def stay there again if and when I return.

Hotel bien situé, proche du centre-ville, facilement accessible depuis l'aéroport car la navette s'arrête dans une rue à proximité. Personnel sympathique. Petit-déjeuner à la fois continental et irlandais, possibilité d'avoir des œufs brouilles, des saucisses, des haricots, du bacon, sur demande au personnel.Chambre propre, literie confortable, télévision, bouilloire avec thé à disposition. Salle de bain suffisamment spacieuse. Attention au sol des étages qui grince et penche légèrement par endroits! (L'hôtel étant situé dans une ancienne maison irlandaise) More...

Was für ein schönes Hotel. Das Mobiliar entspricht nicht dem modernsten Stand, hat aber seinen irischen Charme. Alles war sehr sauber und ich hatte super viel Platz in meinem Zimmer. Einen Adapter hatte ich vergessen und andere Hotelgäste hatten schon alles ausgeliehen. Kein Problem, der nette Herr an der Rezeption lieh mir seinen privaten. Frühstück gab es bis 10 Uhr morgens, juhuuuu! Ausschlafen und Kaffee genießen, so soll es sein. Dazu gab es Bacon & Eggs auf Toast und ein Croissant. Ein super Start in den Tag :-)Als ich wieder Richtung Zimmer schlenderte, sah ich eine Tür die zum einem zweiten Frühstücksraum/ Café führt. WOW! So wundervoll gestaltete Räumlichkeiten, im Stil eher beach/shabby look, genau mein Ding! Vielleicht schaffe ich nochmal auf einen Kaffee herzukommen.Insofern hat mich das Hotel sogar noch überrascht. Ich mag die Stimmung hier und würde definitiv wiederkommen. More...

I am a fan of small, quirky hotels. Much prefer them to large, stylish, soul-less chain hotels. And in this one, you get ambiance galore. Located in the not-so-charming neck of Dublin, the hotels seems to try really hard to compensate for its surroundings' lack of appeal. On the same location since the 1800s, the floors are uneven (but thickly carpeted), the stair creak at every step, and there's a fireplace here, there, and everywhere. The staff is very friendly and service is top-notch.The rooms range from small one-person rooms to large family rooms, and not two are alike. Mine was quite tiny, but it worked for in spite of my size (6'2), and it had the amenities you'd expect for a three-star hotel.There's a full Irish breakfast (think eggs, bacon, sausage, black pudding, the works), your choice of cereal and some yoghurt. Not the wides selection (a selection of breads, some fruit and whatnot could have been nice), but fine for a short stay.All in all one of the more memorable hotels I've stayed in in Dublin. More...

Had very nice days in Dublin, staying this time at Castle Hotel. The staff is very friendly, good food down in the Vaults Restaurant and nice clean rooms. Only 3 mins by foot from O'Connell Street, stop of the City Tour buses just across the road. Good value, won't have been the last time staying here. Thanks @ Hotel staff, made my visit to beloved B.A.C. even more beautiful. Erin go bragh. Cheers from Munich. More...

Had a great family holiday staying in Castle Hotel! Great central convenient and quiet location, warm, friendly and efficient 24-hour service, amazing! Beautifully furnished with old furniture and art pieces, very good food served in two restaurants/bar. Airlink bus 747 has a stop 5 minutes walk away, tour buses also within 10 minutes! Met and chatted to the most charming hotel owners on several occasions, father and son, both full of enthusiasm and passion about the place and the service. Thank you so much! More...

Of all the Hotels I've stayed in this year whilst completing my 5 Marathon Challenge, this is by far the best! Suzanne and Gillian on the front desk made me feel very welcome from the moment I arrived till the time I leave, nothing was ever too much trouble! All the staff were profession and very friendly, just like the rest of Dublin. I will be coming back again soon, this is the only place to stay, reasonable rates, excellent food in the restaurant cooked to the finest standard! I haven't found a single thing wrong here!! Very impressed as were other I spoke to during my stay! Top marks More...

Recht gutes Hotel in Laufnähe zum Dubliner Zentrum. Charmanter Altbau bei dem zwei Haushälften zu diesem Hotel zusammengelegt wurden, so dass man sich auch schon mal etwas verlaufen kann. Nette etwas altmodische Zimmer mit üblicher Ausstattung. Frühstück und Restaurant im Haus, das wir aber nicht ausprobiert haben. In 10 Minuten ist man in der O'Connell Street. Preis rund 75 EUR/Double. More...

Stayed here three nights recently.  The room was fantastic, the only mark against it was being on the central courtyard.  It got a bit loud on a Saturday evening, and the noise echoes a lot .  Still, it was reasonably quiet by 10pm, and wasn't an issue either of the following evenings.  The service was friendly and very helpful, and the morning full breakfast was consistently excellent.  The location is great, just a short walk to O'Connell Street, and it never took long to get to any of the local attractions.  I'll stay here again.
