Don't be fooled!

Lousy. We had an unexpected trip and booked last minute because of the pool. What they don't tell you is that the pool is only open for kids between 9-6. We got there at 6 and while there was NO ONE in the pool, we weren't allowed to bring our kids in. When we arrived with suitcases, no one greeted us, no one took the bags. I got my own trolley, brought them in, and then brought them up to my room. At "Ireland's Best Hotel" this seemed pretty lame. We had a king sized bed and a single in the room advertised as an "executive twin" but were told we had to get a second room for our kids. This turned a good deal into a bad deal for us. The staff was also quite unhelpful. They didn't know bus routes/prices to the neighboring village, and gave terrible directions to the bus stop. Overall feel was snobbery not warmth. Also, it cost 40 Euro to get from the airport. So it wasn't close enough to be convenient for a close trip.

Castleknock Hotel And Country Club

Definitely not a four star hotel, as advertised. Rooms are hot, and the bed only has a down comforter on it - no top sheet or light blanket, so you are either too hot or too cold at night. Wash cloths were not provided in bathroom - we had to ask for them every day, otherwise, the housekeeping staff would remove and not replace them. The restaurant was outrageously expensive, and the food was mediocre. Wi-fi did not work in the room, however, we were able to connect to the Internet via a cable provided by the hotel, and Internet access was free. Carpet in hallways was filthy, but the room was clean. Hotel is a little out of the way - 8 miles from the city center, but parking is free - parking in Dublin is VERY expensive. Overall, a good value, but if you are expecting a four star hotel, go elsewhere.

Ideal to unwind in this beautiful hotel

Really enjoyed a one night break here during the easter holidays. The location is perfect and nice extra touched added to the outdoor areas should you wish to eat or drink outside. The staff were so friendly and went out of their way to be helpful.However some attention needs to be spent on the smaller details. ie hinges in mirror arm in bathroom were broken so no point in having the mirror there - TV Remote was held together by tape, tiles broken on the seats of the steam room which could cause injury, lack of ice machine on corridors but overall an excellent stay. would definitely go back again

Friendly 'posh' hotel

I was travelling on business and wanted a clean, decent hotel on this side of Dublin. This was great. On the downside the room was stuffy, with no aircon and because it was by a flat roof the windows had limited opening. The restaurant and the bar were good, though strange jazz music piped in the restaurant. Breakfast was excellent (pay in advance at the front desk for saving nearly half the price)

Nice and easy

The hotel stay was great. Staff was great and food was good. Drinks were okay and not served quickly but okay. Beds were comfy-cozy. All went well. The hotel was far from town...inconvenient.

Very pleasant experience

Stayed here for four nights at a very competitive rate. The welcome/check in/check out was really good. The room was very comfortable (TV was a bit small and dated). Might have eaten breakfast but couldn't find any prices in the room? Free wifi! We were at the far end of the hotel which was perfect for a noise free nights sleep. Facilities were very good (you need a swimming cap for the pool). All staff through out were well trained and friendly. Fresh milk was available to the room for tea. (Delivered to your door in minutes free of charge. Location is great if you have a car (parking is free) only 20 minutes to the city centre. Great location for exploring and would stay again and recommend.
