Finnstown Castle Hotel
Ranked #1 of 2 Hotels in Lucan
Reviewed 12 April 2012

My husband and I spent three nights here last week, just before Easter. We had booked a double room but the guy on reception put us in one of the suites, in an annex building. This was our first time here so we don't know what the rooms in the main building are like. However, we were really pleased with our suite: a big bedroom, spacious bathroom and comfortable sitting room with little kitchenette. The shower was great - plenty of hot water and powerful enough to rinse long hair quickly. The rooms were very clean and it was lovely and warm, as there was a chill wind outside.
Breakfast was plentiful and delicious, with lots of choice. We ate in the bar in the evenings and the food was always great.
We have two negatives. Firstly, the bed was a bit too soft for our liking. It wasn't "rolling-into-the-middle" soft but just not supportive enough to be comfortable for more than a night. By the second morning my back was a bit sore upon waking. Secondly, if you wanted wifi you had to pay for it. I really can't understand why a super hotel like this just doesn't build free wifi into the price of the room.
However, that apart, we really enjoyed our stay. It was a restful choice of hotel, instead of being in the hustle and bustle of the city centre where we have stayed before. We got the 25b bus just outside the driveway of the hotel and it took us right into O’Connell Street. Then we got the 25b back out again. (For anyone who might want to know, you need coins to pay for the bus and the bus stop to come back from the city centre is in Aston Quay.)
Without exception, all the staff we encountered were friendly and communicative. Thanks to Sean for his pleasant chat and helpful suggestions at breakfast time. We took his advice and went to the Sally Gap on the Thursday. The Wicklow mountains were at their best: it was a bright, clear, sunny day with good visibility and we have some lovely photos. And then, on our last morning, my husband had one of those ultra nostalgic “walk-down-memory-lane” moments, when he encountered a former teenage girlfriend (from 40 years ago!) working in the hotel. (She knows who she is!)
We had a lovely time here and would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to others.

we just spent 5 nights in this lovely hotel, ( two adults, one 7yr old & 3 yrs old twins ) and found it to be as lovely to stay in as it is to view from the outside. the staff are truly very helpful and nothing is to much effort, they are a credit to the smooth running of this hotel.

The accomodation is excellent, everything clean and fresh and no problems whatsoever, the breakfast was superb ( as someone who loves his full irish in the morning i was not disappointed ) there was everything for everyone and we all left each morning very satisfied indeed.

The grounds are a joy to walk around, great care and effort is taken to maintain them to such a high standard and its a credit to all those that do so, just to sit down outside you'd be hard pressed to realise your not in the middle of the country as the peace and serenity is there for all to feel

overall a really great trip, truly enjoyed by us all and would highly recommend this cracking hotel to anyone seeking, high quality accomodation/food/ and service, a real treasure and cant wait till we make a return journey...

p.s the peacocks were a great hit with the kids, the loved seeing them.

Just wanted to thank all the staff at Finnstown Country House Hotel for the great way in which they looked after us at our wedding on the 23rd March. We had a brilliant day, the food was beautiful and our guests absolutely loved the hotel. The grounds were wonderful for the photos. A special thanks to Silvano who was friendly and professional and put us at our ease in the run up to the big day. I would recommend Finnstown House to any bride who is looking for a beautiful, elegant yet relaxed wedding. You won't be disappointed!

We got married here on 02.03.2012. We picked this hotel since we loved the country feel to it and we wanted something a bit different. From the moment we set our feet in there for the first time we just knew: this had to be it. Originally we went for dinner and were really impressed with the beautiful dining room, the friendliness of the staff and the great food. We stayed over night the night before the wedding too and the rooms are big and comfortable. Very clean and modern with a twist of the old times. For the wedding itself we can only give the best reviews, the grounds are stunning, the staff was absolutely brilliant and the food was delicious. All the guests complimented the food, little extras were no problem at all. Everyone was impressed with the hotel itself, the driveway to the hotel brings you into a different world and it's easy to forget that you are still very close to Dublin. Which it really was. The service was great, everyone went out of their way to make sure we had a perfect day. Which we did. We would like to thank everyone for making our day really special and special thanks to Silvano and Edwina for all the help. We are already planning to stay there again in the near future.
