My niece was married at Clontarf Castle in May 2017. Having taken the red eye from USA to Dublin the reception was gracious and an offer of fresh tea/coffee while I waited for my suite was appreciated. Fredericka was the front desk agent who provided a ready smile, a solution to all questions and suggestions. Thank you, Frederica. The guest...

My husband and I arrived in Ireland to celebrate our 1st wedding anniversary and both of our birthdays. This hotel was our first stop and we couldn't ask for anything better! Marcello, at the front desk, welcomed us and even upgraded us to an amazing suite to celebrate our anniversary! We wish we had more than 1 night here! Beautiful...

The room was beautifully appointed and quite comfortable, and I'm sorry we were only there for one night. The food was fantastic, too. The staff were professional and polite, and we would definitely book with them again.

This was our first stop in Ireland, and what a way to kick off our honeymoon. We stayed two nights and couldn't have asked for more. The hotel is outside of the main downtown area, but we had no issues getting taxis to/from the main attractions. The staff was very helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. Room was clean...shower a bit small,...

The pictures do justice to this lovely hotel just outside Dublin. The rooms are beautifully appointed, clean and comfortable. The staff is very helpful and will gladly give you directions to take a bus into the city (very easy) or help you plan your route to another destination. The food is wonderful and beautifully prepared.

We have just come back from a 2 night stay in this hotel which was looks wise matches the pictures and our expectations however the hotel was overrun with children (May is apparently holy communion month) and therefore it wasn't the romantic break we wanted or booked for. They might want to consider opening the indigo bar for guests given...
