My wife and I took a European trip as our honeymoon and this is the first stop along our journey. Both of us were very excited about Ireland saying that this was the place that my wife had wanted to go since she was a little girl. So I reserved this hotel for a couple nights and as soon as we walked in we were NOT disappointed. From the professionalism of the staff, and in the beauty and elegance of the hotel lobby we were amazed.
We were given a complementary upgrade which turned out to be a fantastic room!! So thank you very much again for that!
My wife was completely amazed and impressed at the hotel that I had gotten for her! We had a four poster bed, two windows, a perfect sized bathroom, soft comfortable bed sheets, along with a very soft bed! And the other usual amenities that you would expect with a nicer hotel.
The hotel staff also helped me greatly in booking all the our travel adventures for the following week. I just showed up and he showed me all of the great places and fun things that I should do. He also called all of the different activities and scheduled them along with the taxes for me. So literally all I had to do was wake up, walk outside, get in to the taxi, and they took care of me from there. He even offered to organize the travel for me to get to Dingel!
The breakfast was wonderful!! I would highly recommend it! But only if you know for sure that you will be getting breakfast there every morning. Otherwise you can buy the breakfast for I think two euros more when you arrive down there in the morning. The bar and the restaurant are both very fairly priced for being in the hotel.
The location of the hotel was not bad either because you could just hop on the 130 bus from downtown Dublin and it would take you straight to the castle, or you could hop off a little early and walk about 10 minutes to the castle.
As far as some of the other reviews on here saying that their rooms were too small or that they weren't clean or that they weren't comfortable I have no idea what they are talking about. Maybe they were expecting €1000 a night quality with €100 euro a night price! Also you have to realize that this was a castle so it wasn't exactly designed as a hotel.
Overall this is a fantastic quality Castle Hotel and I would definitely stay in it again!!
