We went down for Christmas and honestly couldn't fault one part of our stay. We stayed for 3 nights and will return soon and would highly recommend the stay to anyone. All the staff throughout were very obliging and couldn't have done enough for us. Thanks

We had the privilege of staying at this supperb establishment over the Christmas period. I would have no hesitation in recommending the Castle and the Christmas package to any one wanting to be spoiled and have a time to remember. We felt like royalty, credit to the management and staff. Unforgettable memories.

Stayed here in Dec for a Christmas dinner. I have stayed before and it is always fantastic when you walk in through the doors. The room was excellent, food was great and staff very helpful. If coming to Dublin I would recommend staying here as you will not be disappointed.
