We arrived and asked to store our luggage until check in and clerk offered to locate some coffee as we had just gotten off a redeye flight. That's the kindness that describes the whole visit to the hotel.

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights, broken up into 2 visits. We began our Ireland road-trip tour here in Dublin, and ending in Dublin. This hotel has great ambiance, each room is different and charming and the food is great!

The castle looks great from the outside, as well as throughout the lobby. The room was a nice room. Nothing wrong with it, but nothing to be excited about either. Our view was the corner of an old cemetery (cool), and the roof of a low building (uncool). We chose the high dollar restaurant, and wish we would have gone... More

Terrific building. Lovely room. Friendly staff, Knights Bar is really good, I almost enjoyed the England rugby match on the big screen, except we lost! Good food there too. Great breakfast. Very relaxing. Easy cab ride from the centre of Dublin. Will be back.

We only stayed for one night towards the end of our honeymoon but it was great! Very comfortable room and beautiful building. We wished we could have stayed longer.
