Thin Walls and Traffic

We were in town for the UCF/Penn St. football game and had 2 rooms and stayed 4 nights at the hotel. The first room was on the street side and was very noisy because of traffic and late night revelers. It was warm so the windows were open but a PM pill allowed us a fairly good night's sleep until the last night when guests in the next room were very loud. The other room was on the courtyard side and much quieter but very warm in the room. The staff was wonderful--happily taking care of all our requests quickly. The service and friendliness of the bar staff left a lot to be desired but the entertainment was good. The breakfast was very good and the cafe staff very accommodating. The hotel is very charming and its location was perfect. We walked to the stadium and many nearby restaurants and pubs.

Old world charm in modern city

Excellent service, great food, and unique rooms make this Dublin hotel special. The restaurants offer tasty food and have charming, authentic decor. Within walking distance of most attractions. Located directly across from a beautiful memorial park. Only downfall is city noise at night. Great value for price

Fantastic weekend break

Over 3 days managed to fit in lots of visits to local attractions. The hotel was very close to the city centre but not a noisy location. The staff were excellent, very friendly and the evening entertainment with "Irish balladeers" very good. The breakfast was basic but good with a good choice of hot food and cereals. Would definitely stay again.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Get a Dublin pass and a 2 or 3 day bus pass so you can "hop-on-and -hop-off" to see as many attractions as possible.

Quirky!

My sisters and I spent a week @ the Castle Hotel. My room was fine though had trouble trying to adjust the heat. Beds were comfortable. Bathroom could use some updating. There was a desk with drawers for clothing also a wardrobe for hanging. My other sister's room was quite the opposite. No place for their clothing and the shower curtain didn't reach the floor so there was a flood every time they took a shower. It was reported and they did try but it just needed a longer curtain which I guess they didn't have. Our rooms were quite a distance from the elevator and a joke was made about leaving a trail of breadcrumbs as there were many doors to go through and ups and downs in the floor. Quirky! The included breakfasts were fine and service was excellent. The food in the restaurant in the evening was very good. The salmon was great and the steak sandwiches even better. They also allowed substitutions so we could get veggies instead of fries. I would definitely stay there again but I don't think my sister would. Too bad but I enjoyed it and the location right off of O'Connell Street was a bonus.

Great week in Ireland

Castle Hotel is a great location! Within walking distance of everything we wanted to do in Dublin. Staff was very nice and helpful. Food in reataurant was great and the bar was a great place to listen to some Irish music. Family room was comfortable for a famly of four.

Great location

The location of the Castle is perfect. An easy walk to the downtown, yet far enough away not to be noisey. Rooms are of good size for a Europien hotel. Breakfast included and very good. They missed cleaning the room one day, when we called to have the room cleaned and fresh towels brought up the front desk said they had gone for the day sorry, but did bring fresh towels. Parking is a problem in Dublin but the Castle offers a car park for 10.00 Euro a day cheap as compared with the street but seems petty to pay for Hotel guests.
