We had our wedding here last Saturday, from start to finish the staff were fantastic. Our guests also agreed how attentive, friendly & professional the staff were throughout the day. We are so happy we chose Clontarf Castle as our wedding venue. The food was superb and the wedding team had everything planned so well, it was perfect! Thanks

The hotel is beautiful, the reception staff at check in I found to be quite cold and unfriendly. Our room was really nice and comfortable. Dinner I have admit we were part of a function and the food was so bad! Literally inedible. Breakfast was not much better, but the staff at breakfast were very nice!

It is a real castle that was built 1172. When I booked I did not realise this. Interior is a mix of true history and contemporary features. Food in restaurants delicious. The place is almost magical. It is definitely a place to stay for a few nights. Pricing can be butt but they have good discounts on certain dates. It...

My husband and I came in on an early morning flight, so we arrived at the hotel 3 hours before check-in. When we asked if we could possibly check in early, considering they had a room, we were told that they didn't have the type of room we booked, but they could upgrade us in 45 minutes. We had the...

Clontarf Castle Hotel definitely has the wow factor, from the moment you pull up in the car park you can tell you have made the right decision. The reception area is stunning, and there are pieces of art located throughout the entire building and on different levels. Knights Bar serves drinks and food, and the food we had there was...

Fantastic hotel from the minute you enter grounds by meeting a large castle gate entrance which gives you a good feeling straight away. Great design which brings you back in time and then met by friendly staff. Room was very comfortable and location was perfect. Excellent stay overall.

By far the best hotel I have ever stayed in. Very well presented, staff are so friendly and can't do enough for you. A little out of the way from Dublin centre but that didn't matter, about 15-17 euro into temple bar area. Beds are very comfy, rooms are very clean. Brew making facilities, iron and a mini bar available....
