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.

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.

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

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.

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

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!

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.

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

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...

Firstly, the staff at the Castle Hotel could not be more friendly or helpful, which is a good start.

Nice mid range hotel in theatre district. Several Georgian townhouses knocked into one. Hotel has a homely feel about it. Lots of little sitting rooms downstairs if your looking for a quiet corner. Main bar & restaurant in the cellar - reasonably priced menu with free entertainment on most nights. Friendly efficient staff & all you can eat breakfast included. Would definitely recommend.
