I stayed here with my Husband in a double room, my sister, husband and 3 month old also stayed in a double room. We had dinner in the area just off the bar, food was lovely, staff were helpful. Room was a good size with 2 double beds, bed was comfortable, but the room was extremely hot. (I know the one night a year in Ireland) there was a wedding in the hotel, but we didn't hear a thing. Breakfast was great, plenty of choice, they even had Soya milk available, most hotels do not. The hotel has large bright public areas with plenty of seating. The only down side was the pool was closed for renovations. If I was going to Crokepark again for anything I would definitely stay here again, its proximity to the train station is perfect for getting into town.

This was our second stay at the Castleknock Hotel this year and we enjoyed it just the same as our previous stay. Staff were very friendly and helpful and the hotel was spotless. We had the same room as our previous visit and it was very comfortable and spacious with a king sized bed. There are tea & coffee making facilities in the room and a good quality hair dryer. There is also free wi-fi throughout the hotel and the car parking is also free. There is a golf course on site also and the hotel also offers spa treatments. There is a very good selection for breakfast and the food quality was very good. The service was excellent at breakfast and also in the bar. The cost was very reasonable in comparison to similar quality hotels in Dublin. Although it is not well situated for those wanting to visit the city centre it was ideal for our needs. There are building works going on in the hotel but in no way do they interfere with the guests. The only small issue was the lack of air conditioning in the room - thankfully the weather was not too warn during our visit. We will definitely stay here again unless our requirements change.

The Castleknock Hotel was a lovely hotel to stay in. Me and my partner stay for one night as part of our Ireland tour. On arrival, the reception staff were very pleasant and helpful. When we got up to the room it was very clean and offered excellent in room services (mini fridge and desk fan). The only downside to the room was that we had booked a double room but the bed was 2 large single beds pushed together with a king size sheet over them. The restaurant was very modern and the food was amazing, only downside was service was a little bit slow but besides that everything was great! The next morning for breakfast, we were greeted with a very helpful server who explained how the breakfast system worked. There was a massive range of foods available from fresh fruit to cereals to cooked breakfast. We would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone looking to stay in a modern stylish hotel.

We spent two nights at the Castleknock Hotel in a triple room and found it to be clean and roomy. The buffet breakfast was included in the stay and had a nice variety of foods to choose from. The dining area was large and full of light. Our only negatives were that the room was hot and stuffy even when we opened the windows and it would have been nice to have a fan to circulate the air. Also a small fridge would have been a plus. There is a nice pub (The Carpenter) and a Spar within walking distance. Overall it was a nice experience.

Visited for business meeting and very impressed with new breakfast/dining area. Really stylish new interior and cool bar! Food delicious and coffee lovely. Staff smartly dressed and pleasant. Will be back!

Had some bar food which was good..service was a bit slow. Menu could have more of a selection, but over all it was fine. Busy with families, so found it a bit noisy as its very open area. But it is ideal for families

Food was good in lounge. New restaurant layout will be checking it out. Watch out for the seafood chowder very salty not to my liking. Staff in hotel most helpful and friendly. Refurbishing going on at the moment not to much disturbance to people not saying there.

Lovely location, with great facilities. Room was top-notch and very comfortable. Friendly staff. Would definitely stay again. Walking distance to Phoenix Park, not necessarily to City Centre though, depending on how spritely you are.

We arrived very early in the morning after travelling all night from London to attend a relatives funeral. Upon arrival we were very pleased to find that we could have our rooms to have a shower and get changed. We were waiting to be checked in so asked if we could have our breakfast as time was against us and family were collecting us early. I explained as I booked bed and breakfast we would not be around the following morning for breakfast so we would have ours this morning. We finished breakfast and returned to reception to collect our keys. The young girl gave us one of the keys for one of the rooms and before she gave us the second key she informed us that we would have to pay for the breakfast I told her we had booked b/b and would not be around the following morning as we were leaving at 6.45am so was having breakfast this morning. After much arguing with the receptionist she told me I could not have my key until breakfast had been paid for she told me the breakfast was only for the morning after the night that we stayed. Can you believe this!!! By now I am really losing my temper and asked to speak to the manager who read the situation very quickly after I told him that I have stayed in many hotels in Dublin and around the world and never have been spoken to by a hotel receptionist with such a ridiculous reason as to when I could have the breakfast I had already paid for. Later that same day after the funeral we came back to the hotel felt a bit peckish and ordered a sandwich decided to have a bottle of wine as by now we were relaxing I asked for a bottle of house white wine only to be told had to order from the wine list as there is no house wine so ordered a bottle asked if we could sample a drop before we ordered the waitress came over with a bottle with at least a third used poured out the wine It was really nice so she continued to pour the wine I thought this strange but tired and hungry we drank our wine ate our sandwich when I called her over for our refill she brought out the same bottle I pointed out that when I ordered the wine I was ordering a bottle not a glass she told me she would get me a bottle but would have to take out 2 glasses of the wine I said fine do that. I have to say she didn't but all in all its not a cheap hotel by any measure but the service is quite below par so won't be rushing back anytime soon

We arrived at 3.50pm expecting to check in to be told the room was not ready. Check in time is from 3pm. We were told 5 minutes later that they had found a room. We were happy that this was resolved until we got to the room! The view was as per below picture a waste area. I'm surprised that a 'superior' room would have this view! Recycling of bottles went on until @ least 1am! We had been out all evening and returned to get a drink @ the bar. The hygiene of the bar was appalling. There was dirty glasses, broken glasses and dish clothes all over the bar area. I don't think we would return. At the minute definitely not a four star hotel!
