This was our 3rd stay at the Clontarf Castle Hotel, we love it. The hotel is stunning and the location is great just a couple of miles from the City centre but near a bus route in.
The rooms are small but fully equipped and very comfy. We have stayed in Dublin City Centre loads of times and Clontarf Castle beats them for value and it is quiet so you actually get some sleep. You would pay about 50 Euros more for a city centre hotel of equal standard.
Knight’s bar is really nice, good pub food menu.
I do agree with a lot of other reviewers that the standards are dropping though. We had dinner included in the Fahrenheit Grill as part of the package. The food was really mediocre and service was average. Both have always been brilliant before. At breakfast the food items were not replaced and the service was poor again.
The deals you get here are great and I would stay here again, but you can see the cuts and it affects the whole feel of the hotel.More
