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...
