Came into Dublin a bit late today and decided to stay at the hotel for dinner. To our great surprise the food was fantastic! Had the steak Sandwich and focaccia and dip. Karen was super friendly and very quick to bring out Irish coffees! Definitely a place we will come back to!!!!

We visited the bar on Sunday for lunch, hadn't been in a while and expected nice food given the quality of the hotel. The first thing I was surprised at was the lack of healthy choices on the menu - it had burgers, sandwiches,fish in batter, pasta in creamy sauce and curry and a few salads all with sauces. The...

It was busy! Make a reservation. Totally worth the wait though since all 6 of our meals were absolutely fantastic and we had great service also!

We ate here several times while staying at the hotel. The food was good, reasonable and the bar is part of the old castle. The decor is very castle like.

The food is good and the cocktails are great, good selection of craft cocktails. However the service is a bit lacking. They tend to get very busy and do not appear to have enough staff. The atmosphere is very nice, that of a casual pub with good history and interesting decor. Fish and Chips was very good. Soup of the... More

We stayed at the Clontarf hotel and we were so pleased with how lovely the in-hotel bar was. It fit the overall decor of the hotel and the staff was so friendly. They even kept the kitchen open late so we could have ice cream :)

This bar is just like the days of old with the polished floors, huge wooden bar, large ornate wood backdrops and fine 11th and 12th century reminders. The bar is equipped with all the modern necessities and accompaniments to appease the hearts of minds of all appropriate ages. I found the bar to be a place of elegance, distinctness, and... More

Had lunch there yesterday. I had a very ordinary carvery beef lunch. My Partner asked for a Turkey sandwich, it arrived with slices of rubber turkey from a packet, it was not fresh. The sandwich was expensive as was the €3.10 cup of Tea from a single Tea bag. Cost with a tip (earned from a nice but overworked waitress)... More

Dress it up or dress it down. Either is in step here. Excellent food and an open atmosphere. Can get a bit crowded with the after work crowd but on weekends it's a bit more tame. Nice place for couples and small groups.

The bar setting is beautiful. The hotel is stunning We ordered a few honey glazed ham sandwiches: I was excited and expected a brunch that is out of the norm... it wasn't! I knock up the exact same sandwich every day with ingredients from lidl but don't put a big bad price tag on it!! Ordinary bread, cheese and ham.... More
