Very nice hotel in a great location in Dublin. The hotel staff is friendly and the rooms are clean and tidy. The restaurant is very good as well and they have a good selection of beer on tap. It is an older style hotel that fits in with the community and very comfortable for travelers. Easy walking distance to many attractions.

Hotel is nice, most of the staff were really pleasant, particularly two girls on reception. Breakfast was good and staff were attentive there too. We were basically ignored when we dined at the restaurant. Major drawback is the live Irish singer in the restaurant, who can be heard in any room in the vicinity until he finishes at 11 and who was unnecessarily rude to my mother and I when we visited to watch, as it seemed we might as well watch it if we were going to have to listen as well.

Reception very helpful, rooms comfortable, breakfast excellent, lobby and pub very congenial. We spent one evening listening to a folk singer which was very enjoyable. Hotel is walking distance to main area, near many bus routes and one block from two wonderful museums, Dublin's Writer's Museum and Hugh Lane Gallery as well as near top restaurant, Chapter One and great pub with music, Murray's Bar.

Had a great stay at the Castle Hotel and I must admit the time was improved because Scotland and Ireland playing in the Worlds in Soccer. The Entire Tartan Army was in Full force and we had a great time drinking and partying at night with the Army. The Hotel had a quaint bar in the basement with Music Nightly and the room was as odd as the multitude of hallways that wrapped all over the building.

We stayed at the Castle Hotel and can report it's a very good choice. The location is near the centre, the room was comfortable, the breakfast was plentiful, the staff were pleasant and efficient. We even met the owner who was a charming character. If we visit Dublin again we'll head back there.

Place in great location but definitely not worth the money we paid for it. Additionaly rooms are too loud as you can hear every step on the corridor as well as every breath of your neighbour. There are also good sides of this place: great breakfast which will keep you running the whole day. Location from which it is close to everything. Cosy bar downstairs and clean rooms

Brought a group of 40 to Castle Hotel. Reception was very helpful. The hotel has elevators to get to the many levels. The group was split up and stayed in various parts of this sprawling hotel. The room was small and quaint but comfortable. Breakfast was wonderful with very fresh foods from local farms. I also loved venturing down into the vaults for music and a drink.

Checking in took more than an hour...and there was no line. They just struggled that much with our online booking. They said they would give us a bit nicer of a room for the trouble and that seemed fine. We park, unload and bring our bags up only to find that "our" room was actually already occupied by someone. So, we go back down to the desk. We are now at 90 minutes. They make no apology at all and suggest we find a different hotel, but offer no help in doing that. It's now 9 pm and we had hop...

We stayed at the Castle hotel our last two nights in Dublin. First off, with all the construction going on and numerous one-way streets, itā??s not easy to get to this hotel. I realize this is not the fault of the hotel, but they should do a better job of letting their guests know about the situation a head of time. Parking at the hotel is also kind of a nightmare. They do not have valet parking, but they at least have an off the street car parkā?¦but itā??s around the block, and you need to fi... Read more

Being in a an old building, it does have a lot of charm, but it does mean that the rooms are small and there are many stairs (there are lifts but you still need to take your bags up some steps). One of our bag wheels actually broke on the steps. The room and bathroom was quiet pokey. The breakfast room was very busy so you feel a bit rushed to get out. The highlight was the traditional Irish music in the vault rooms downstairs. The bar is very ordinary down there though but the music was e... Read more

This was our second stay at Castle Hotel. Very quaint hotel , quiet street. They have rooms with multiple beds which is perfect for families traveling with children or teenagers.

I typically don't bother with poor reviews, but this hotel is over priced. the rooms are outdated, and a bit moth ball smelling. We were placed at the end of the hallway - with lots of empty rooms in between, which - wasn't helpful for us. The fitness center/hot tub is nice, but it takes 10 minutes to get signed in. The service in the restaurants was sub par. The manager and staff were overwhelmed by a big hen party for dinner - and we got forgotten. Maybe its a castle? But, I recommend s... Read more

I traveled with a group on a business trip to Ireland and the last night was spent in Dublin. We were booked by our coordinator at this hotel and it was very unusual, which I like. The property at one point was 3 Georgian homes, and were combined into 1 hotel. We left our large suitcases in the luggage room, but still ended up dragging them to our room - which was no small feat. There is an elevator (very small) and once you get off, you maneuver through hallways, and go up and down stairs (mayb... Read more

I enjoyed my stay here. The staff are kind and helpful. The rooms are well appointed and the bath is lovely. The breakfast is "full Irish" with lighter options. It is a quick walk to O'Connell St., well located. I liked the sense of ease here....but is it very busy and there are a lot of "touristy" types.

The room we were in had absolutely no fans (not even in the bathroom.) Since there is no air conditioning in the room, a fan would have made it tolerable. You can't open the windows since the windows face busy streets. The staff was friendly and helpful and the breakfast was very good.

A very well located hotel near Connelly Street and within walking distance to the Bridge! Temple Bar is only 15 minutes walk and tours leave just outside the hotel, though located on a side street! Very clean and large rooms and toilets. Lovely breakfast and a great bar in the basement. Very close to many eating places, as well. Slightly on the expensive side!

Lovely friendly staff and nothing is too much trouble and yes I would go back again

I highly recommend this hotel for anyone looking for a hotel in the center of Dublin with an easy 10 minute walk to Temple Bar area. Rooms are modestly sized, but clean and well presented. Room rates include an excellent full cooked breakfast. Live music is played every night in the restaurant which offers a good menu at reasonable prices. Staff are very polite and helpful.

The Castle is situated in an excellent location, just approximately 5 minutes walk from The Spire, which marks the intersection at O'Connell Street with Talbot Street and Henry Street, and around 15 minutes walk from The Temple Bar. The staff at the reception were friendly; our room was very clean, with tea/coffee making facilities. Comfortable double bed. My wife loved the small rooms just by the reception, ... Read more

Stayed at the Castle for 6 weeks as a consequence of unforeseen family circumstances. The generosity, compassion and assistance displayed by all members of the staff during my extended stay was simply wonderful. The hotel is extremely comfortable with a genuine homely feel. Old world charm at its best. An outstanding venue!

I consider the Castle Hotel to be one of my best hotel finds ever! The hotel is unique, having been three different hotels or homes which were joined together. That makes for some interesting architecture and fun quirks (like our room is supposedly on the second floor, but the fifth floor is lower than ours!) The inside of the building is amazing-do not miss the barrel vaulted ceilings in the basement. (The food is delicious too, and there's the bonus of live Irish music nightly in high seaso... Read more

Really nice place to stay for short visit to Dublin. Staff are lovely and the food is great. Bit of a trek into centre of Dublin. About 10 to 15 mins but ideal for burning of suc a massive breakfast! Live music at weekends too just to add to the whole Irish experience

First night in Ireland. Hotel had a great location but appeared older than we expected. It did have a certain charm though. Our room was just average and didn't have some of the items we might expect in a big city hotel. No A/C or mini safe. The elevator from the ground floor worked ok but was very small. We found the room was quite noisy at night as the walls seemed paper thin. On our third night the weather was warm and we found the room unbearable. We asked for a fan and they provided a smal...

Nicely situated within walking distance if centre and not difficult to find. Private and secure parking available but not clear on arrival where to go. Found ourselves having to park in centre car park and walk to hotel to find out what the system was! Easy once you know - round the back of hotel next to the Old Music shop restaurant behind big wooden doors. As for the hotel very friendly and helpful staff. Cellar bar food and beer good with live music creating a great atmosphere. Optional cho... Read more

This is a lovely hotel and staff were nice and helpful to me too. The room was clean and comfortable but the curtains would not close as they were too short. Had to partially hold them together with a chair. A few bulbs in the lamps had gone too. I would definitely recommend but i would suggest however that the staff are asked to treat everybody the same, regardless of age. My daughter paid for the trip. The receptionist talked to me rather than to her about the booking, even though it was cle... Read more

Away for a few days my partner booked the Castle, it is well situated to explore Dublin. The rooms are well presented clean and tidy. Two slight niggles the shower thermostat was not working properly so you either froze or were scalded this was reported and was soon rectified, the other being that the toilet roll was located behind the door.

We stayed here from Monday to Friday and found it a very comfortable hotel. Staff were friendly and helpful (including printing off online tickets for us for Kilmainham Gaol. Room service was excellent (in fact, too excellent as they changed the towels daily despite us adhering to the notice to leave them on the rail if not needing changing)! Food was excellent, very tasty and average price although the veggie breakfast was disappointing (they just removed the bacon and sausage)! Evening ente... Read more

The staff were friendly and were able to answer many questions we had promptly. It is a great location to everything. We walked the whole of Dublin over the course of six days. There were a couple of issues...with the shower, you either froze or got burned as the water seemed to change often. Also, the bottom of the shower was so slick, you either had to brace your feet against the side or hold onto the hand rail. The "superior" room is nowhere as big as what pictures look like. There were only ... Read more

I recently stayed at the Castle Hotel & while the staff were very helpful & the restaurant was excellent, I found the room to be a bit tired & a noisy. I hadn't researched the location sufficiently, so found it was a out of the way for Trinity College & Grafton Street shops.

On the positive side the hotel was clean and conveniently located. I had a reservation for a single room and asked for a quiet location. I was given a room off the courtyard in the back on the first floor adjacent to smokers outside the bar. It was not quiet. I was advised by the staff that the Hotel was fully subscribed.The room was tiny and I wondered how I would open my suitcase. The bed was poor, lift was broken for part of the week and plumbing had low water pressure. The restaurant was in ... Read more

It's a comfortable and warm hotel at the center of Dublin city, with clean rooms, very nice underground bar, very good Irish breakfast. The stuff of the hotel is very friendly and helpful . Rooms have WiFi, television,desk with mirror,a closet and big bathrooms. The funny think in this hotel is the corridor to your room if your room is not near the stairs.

Nice hotel; rooms are a lot smaller than we had expected having viewed them on the Internet. Had we known, would've paid another 10 or 20% and stayed in a bigger named place. It's definitely adequate, it's definitely clean; we just feel it's too expensive for what we got.

I stayed here for 3 nights, and while I wasn't overwhelmed, I'd return in the future. Pros: The location is excellent, right on O'Connell street, and several bus lines and a Luas rail stop are only a few minutes walk away. The staff was polite and helpful, and the room was clean. There was an issue with the lights one morning, but it was quickly resolved. Cons: The hotel is a series of connected houses, and it can be an adventure to find your room (4 fire doors, 2 flights of stairs for me)... Read more

Room was smaller than on the pictures and was very noisy. 3 times during the night someone came out to the car park and dumped a load of bottles in the bin. And getting to the room was an adventure. Restaurant nice but a bit pricey. The breakfast was heaving at 8.30 and a real struggle to find a free table. Food was rAther canteen style. Ok for one night, maybe 2, but no way could I have stayed longer.

The room was small and the walls were a little thin. The bed was comfortable and the staff was very helpful. They even fixed us breakfast at 4:30AM before we left for the airport. It is a convenient location and you can catch the "hop on hop off" bus a short distance away.

Some of the reviews on here are less than complimentary but for us it was a great choice for two nights. The hotel was good-looking, made up of several Georgian properties. Comfortable beds, quiet room even though it overlooked the street, lovely staff, good food, and the location excellent for walking round or getting a bus tour. I must also mention the high quality live musician who sang in the bar.
