Wow Wow Wow what an amazing hotel. My husband and I stayed for three nights in a very elegant delux double room with a very comfortable 6ft bed. The tea tray was well stocked and the complementary toiletries were lovely, not to feminine, so suitable for men and women. We ate in the Knights Bar on our fist night after...

People were awesome and the rooms were cool. little bit outside the main downtown area but was worth the stay. Food was awesome all the restaurants were well worth it. Got to hang out with the bar staff for one of the nights and they were helpful to find local points of interest.

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.
