Raspberry and tomato soup for pudding......it's to die for. Had an absolutly amazing meal in The Park restaurant. The meal was faultless...each course a masterpiece on a plate. Compliments to chef and his team. Lovely ambiance in the room and the serving staff are there when you need them. Any one looking at the raspberry and tomato soup on the... More

I am atm in the castleknock hotel and it is not much better than crown plaza that I was in 3 months ago. Food is not so good, and everything I tried from the menu, gave me cramps in the stomach. Nice spacious room, but not much special. I still havent seen golf course, so I hope this will bring... More

Played 18 holes here for the first time, absolutely lovely course that's very well kept. Challenging without being too hard. Also only €25 for a round. Would recommend, will be back

I have to admit, I had some doubts about going here at first, when invited by family. Having had quite a dreadful experience some time back in the adjoining hotel. However, this time, at the Vue restaurant, overlooking the beautiful golf course and the real Liffey Valley (not the shopping centre) it was a very positive experience. My first impressions... More

We'd visited this golf club for dinner a few years back and had the best steak on the stone I've ever tasted. However have visited twice in last few weeks and have disappointed in the food. I've had lamb and the houose burger. Meat was overcooked completely each time, was bland and you got the impression that chef was going... More

Tonight we dined in the golf club for the second time in a month, and both times were an absolute treat. The view, from The Vue is amazing. You could stare out of the windows all night. Saturday has a set menu, and I cheekily asked to substitute a main from the al a carte menu, no trouble what so... More

I visited Castleknock Hotel and Golf Club on my own early last Wednesday evening. I had cod and chips, which was very very mediocre. Nothing like the same meal recently in Clontaft Castle, in which the fish was SOO very light and really fresh. However, Olivier, the French waiter was very kind and engaging and turned a boring meal into... More

What an amazing setting for a communion meal. Very friendly staff. Food was truly amazing. Very reasonably priced. My daughter received a card and gift, which was a lovely touch.

We came here for a family meal, after a colleague recommended it. We all had different starters, mains and deserts. All were very tasty 😉

I think I expected more because of the promise of a castle. The place was more a holiday inn though. Rooms clean and spacious but nothing special. Furniture needs updating. Breakfast average. Best summed up as- it will do!
