I visited with my brother, we had a big family room. Lovely hotel, very pleasant and accommodating staff and management. Nice bar. A decent breakfast. The Old Music Store Restaurant does a delish crumble. The location is very convenient for the airport bus and for town itself. All in all I would highly recommend.
Great value hotel

I will definitely be staying here again if I ever make it back to Dublin. This hotel is right by city centre and has such a cute old atmosphere. This hotel has a lot of character with a great and welcoming staff. The room that I had, had a great view of the church across the street. The breakfast was delicious with a vegetarian option as well. I highly recommend eating at either of the restaurants downstairs. This is an older hotel so there is no air conditioning and the floors are extra squeaky. Yes, it is an older hotel but I think it gives it a nice history. The windows do open so you can open those if you need to cool off. With the floors being squeaky, if you are a light sleeper I suggest earplugs or a white noise machine to block out people walking down the hall or down the stairs. It was a cute little room and it is PERFECT for the solo traveler.
Friendly and familiar

Very nice experience, although room cleaning service should be automatical as it is what you expect from an hotel (we had to ask for it since due to covid they do not do it unless you ask). We'd rather have a buffet type of breakfast, although the one served was abundant and correct. The personnel was very friendly and correct.

We stayed again at the Castle from Tuesday 24th August left this morning.
Honestly could not meet a nicer staff team, had some stress with current covid flight guidance and the lovely girls on the desk helped us stay calm and supported us to identify what would be needed.
The hotel itself holds the same character it has since we visited years ago.
Covid continues to enforce social distancing measures but staff make you feel at ease.
We were in room 233 which was big enough for me and my friend. The beds were comfortable. The shower was a little small, I banged my arms on the cubicle each time I turned around.
Sleep was problematic but no fault of the hotel, there appears to be a resident seagull nearby.
Location is great can't go wrong, straight walk down to O'connell Street.
Breakfast was nice, we had a irish breakfast every day made to order.
Today having to leave early we had toast and drinks provided.
We had a meal at the Castle last night, the steak was absolutely beautiful.
Had yet another fantastic stay would definitely recommend.
A tired but absolutely welcoming place to stay

Slightly out of town but still easy for public transport in and out. The hotel is tired and in need of a general makeover but with Covid it’s expected with a fall in income. Room was very clean as was bedding and bathroom. Window ledge was completely cracked in half and when reported, nothing was done. Had to ask for an iron and ironing board 3 times and then again for the iron a 4th. We had to queue for breakfast which was a little dry and cold on day 1 but day 2 was lovely and again with Covid the distancing was expected as was the wait.. However you cannot take away the attitude of all staff who are friendly and welcoming and all the bits and pieces that make this a 3 star basic are forgiven. The price reflects the hotel and we did because of walking issues pay out for Uber a number of times but it’s around a 30 min walk to Temple Bar but plenty of buses and a tram locally so not too much of a drama. I would recommend if you have a budge at are happy with public transport
