My sisters and I took my mum here for a birthday treat and we were not disappointed!! The hotel is just 5 minutes in a taxi from Connolly St station! The hotel exterior and interior is beautiful. The atmosphere is relaxed and welcoming! When we booked we thought we had booked into the restaurant for dinner but reception hadn't received...

Epic hotel, lots of history and character but also modern and luxurious. Staff friendly, food lovely, touches like open fires and decor add to the experience. Would definitely stay again. Not much to do locally, but the castle is a great place to stay.

Stayed in an Exec Double. I normally love 'rooms with a view' which Clontarf does not provide but boy does Contarf make up for this. Loved my stay, room spacious, modern but strangely comforting -I would suggest the BEST breakfast in Dublin.

The hotel is beautiful, from coming up the drive to walking into the lobby. The staff was friendly and very helpful with questions about getting around and the hotel itself. We had dinner at the restaurant, and it was great! Portions were large, and everything was perfect. Next time, I will definitely stay more than one night!

The hotel was beautiful and the reception staff very helpful. Although the restaurant at the hotel took long in providing service, the food was world class. I would recommend the the pasta and pork dishes. Keep up the good work.

To say that this castle hotel is beautiful is an understatement. In 2009, it was voted the most beautifully decorated hotel in Europe. The staff was wonderful, the decor was tasteful, the rooms were clean and comfortable. We stayed here for our last night in Ireland, and would come back a million more times. We chose not to stay here...

The facilities are excellent and hotel property is magical in a way. It is not far from the city, and only 15 mins to the airport. I would strongly recommend staying there at least the final night of any Dublin visit ahead of the airport.
