We stayed at Clontarf Castle while in Dublin. Nice clean room on small side, well appointed. Location was outside of Dublin and less convenient than those in town. This hotel is in more of a residential area. Hop-on tour bus comes by only once daily around 9:15 a.m. but does not return so you must find a way back. If...

Great quiet location in the northeast area of the city. One city bus just outside the hotel takes you downtown in 15-20 minutes depending on traffic. Rooms are updated, have North American electrical in one area, very comfortable bed. On our first visit staff was friendly and helpful. We are returning tonight after touring other areas of Ireland.

I loved the hotel, the atmosphere is nice and the staff are helpful. The room was on the 4th floor and under the eaves which was a bit cramped for someone my height. No window just a Velux which mean there was no real view (unless you were on the bed.
