Upon arrival we received a very warm welcome and an efficient check in from Vijay on reception, which set the tone for our stay. Our accommodation was luxurious with a four poster bed with a very comfortable mattress. Everywhere was spotlessly clean. Dinner in the Fahrenheit Restaurant was of the highest standard with great service from Melanie and Jamie. The...

LOVE this place! It's got charm and history but all the modern amenities you'd need. The rooms are spacious and updated. The beds are comfortable. The castle itself is cool to explore. The restaurant and bar are great! Two thumbs up! My only suggestion would be to add in-room movies.

The hotel is really as a small castle. I was impressed by the interior and exterior. You can feel the specific spirit of the Middle Ages through the prism of contemporary trends which for me was very interesting as an idea. The breakfast is very good, the staff is friendly and helpful. The food was delicious.

Candles are lit every where.....beware.....they are scented! The kind of smell that does not leave your nose for quite awhile! The scent is so strong, it makes you...

Pleased with the room, with breakfast and overall stay in Clontarf. Hotel really looks like a Castle. It is surrounded by clean quite streets and Irish houses, with green grass and trees that you can definetly enjoy a walk arround.
