    The location of this hotel was great! We were able to walk around downtown Dublin and get to every tour without having to taxi or drive ourselves. The room we had was very basic, nothing to brag about. It was clean though. We had to walk through a few doors and hallways to get to our room which we laughed about because we felt like we were in a maze. Still laughing haha! Staff was kind and helpful with all of our questions. They had an elevator which was nice for our friends who overpacked for this trip lol They weren’t so lucky at our hotel in Scotland. The restaurant staff was kind and offered coffee, tea and toast before they were actually open on our early mornings when we had to leave for the day. The parking for the hotel is not the best. They have 2 parking areas in the back, both of which don’t have many spots. We were lucky enough to always snag the last one though! I believe the street parking across the street is free between 7am and 7pm. If you’re lucky enough to snag a spot in the back, a compact car is best lol very tight spots.

    Perfect Location

    This hotel is the perfect place to stay! The staff are fantastic, food is great, and the location is perfect as well. It’s not right in all the action, so you get peaceful sleep, but it’s close enough to everything to walk. Highly recommend this hotel!

    A nice place to stay

    The Castle Hotel is charming with lots of sloping floors. Great breakfast included in the price. Nice and central for easy walking and only about 200 metres or so from the express bus stop to the airport. Friendly staff. No safe in the room.

    Beautiful hotel with caring staff

    We spent a night here after a problem with our initial Hotel. I cannot state enough how accommodating the staff where in finding us a quiet room in which to get some much needed sleep. The whole hotel, from rooms to reception to restaurant is exactly what is needed at the end of a long day. I would stay here again in an instant. Quiet, clean, comfortable and an easy walk into Dublin. Food is good and atmosphere wonderful. Thank you to the reception staff for all their help

    So-So Hotel in An Expensive, Drab City

    Ok hotel with very friendly staff. Lobby and first floor quite nice. Within easy walking distance from the river and maybe 15 minutes walk to the (overcrowded) Temple Bar area. We stayed for a week after getting a good deal on orbitz including free breakfast. But the breakfast was not so good - each day the poached eggs were over-cooked and hard, sausage either burnt and (apparently) from yesterday or almost raw and not very tasty. After a few days we decided to go elsewhere and pay for breakfast. Basement restaurant not nearly as nice-looking as some of the advertisement photos and the beer was over-priced - 6.8 Euros for a pint when most pubs even in the downtown were about 5.5 - 6.5. Our room on the 2nd floor (3rd floor to Americans) was ok but the bed was hard and each morning my back was sore - as were my ears from the uncomfortable pillows. Door had chipped and peeling paint around it. WC had an odd smell, & the shower was minuscule. Walls paper thin and floors mostly creaky - in other words whenever someone walked down the hall it was LOUD. The bland framed pictures on the walls were screwed in and each one was at an angle - not one was level. The tall, slim mirror by the window tilted most obviously. Staff told us not to go looking for a pub north of the hotel - gave us the clear impression the areas north of the hotel were not so safe and that the pubs would not be welcoming or friendly towards us. Overall it was - at best - an average hotel in an expensive and not very pretty city. But, the staff really was very nice and the first floor really was pretty and had old-world charm. Maybe the more expensive (or newer) rooms are much better, but our room left alot to be desired. Oh, the hotel envelopes a coffee shop on the corner - exactly catty-corner from the Garden of Remembrance. Now THAT place was very nice and friendly and we had a very good coffee and slices of cake in there.
