First visit to Dublin

Posted Oct 21, 2014
Pros: Very close to all attractions in the centre of Dublin
Cons: Nothing comes to mind
Location: Tourist buses just down the road and Temple Bar not too far.
When we arrived at the hotel our room was ready for us. The staff at reception were very friendly and helpful and gave us all the information we required about the hotel. Our room was adequate for what we needed. Very clean and the bed was so comfy. There is a lot of antique furniture around the hotel so it feels as if you are staying in a grand old house. There are two restaurants of which we used one. Breakfast was excellent and the evening meals were very good. However, they could do with a few more veggie choices. Free use of a computer and printer if required, which we did to check in for our next flight. Overall a very good experience. Enjoyed staying at this hotel and would return again.

It was a nice hotel with a fun bar with live music

Posted Oct 20, 2014
Pros: nice atmospher
Cons: they need to hire proper staffing especially when it comes to maintenance
Location: James Joyce Writers Museum
Everything was great except the furnace broke and for the 3 days we were there they told us everyday that they would fix it. We still survived and they gave us an electric furnace to plug in. Just a little weird there. The bar was nice and so was the food. Overall a good experience and location. Close to bus stops and taxis.

Honeymoon at the Castle

Posted Oct 19, 2014
We spent a 7-night budget-friendly honeymoon at the Castle Hotel this fall. Our favorite things were the Irish breakfast every morning (cut our food budget by a third!) and the Castle Vaults bar, where wet spent a few of our nights enjoying Guinness pints and listening to Irish music after a long day of sightseeing. The hotel location was in a great spot at the city center and was within walking distance of Trinity College, St. Stephen's Greens, Temple Bar, shopping, restaurants and several bus stops. The hotel, restaurant, and bar staff were friendly and helpful and the hotel itself was clean and had a lot of character. The only minor issues we had were with the shower (unpredictable temperature) and TV reception, but we still 100% recommend the Castle Hotel and can't wait for our next stay there.

Lovely hotel, close to city centre

Posted Oct 17, 2014
Pros: Clean, comfortable, within walking distance of many destinations. Friendly staff. I love to eat downstairs in the Castle Vaults - excellent food.
Cons: There is one negative for me - breakfast. It's included, but the food is cold and dining area too crowded (it is a separate entity from Castle Vaults)
Location: Location is literally steps from O'Connell Street, Writer's Museum, Garden of Remembrance and the James Joyce Centre. An easy walk to the river.
I stayed at Castle Hotel before and will again...the staff is always helpful, the rooms are very nice, and the location is very convenient (steps from O'Connell Street and the Dublin Writer's Museum).

classic hotel but....

Posted Oct 15, 2014
Pros: breakfast, location, classic design
Cons: shower drain, maybe sound proofing (though would be difficult on this old hotel), make sure to bring all your own toiletries.
Location: oconnel st nearby, temple bar, close to bus routes.
very beautiful and classic hotel close to downtown dublin. great central location. walking distance to everything. classic exterior and interior design. the included breakfast was very filling and amazing!!! only gripes: breakfast opened a little late at 730; walls very thin, we could basically hear people waking upstairs and nearby; shower drain did not work! yuck.

Nice Hotel near the centre

Posted Oct 15, 2014
Pros: Breakfast was very good - relaxed and had everything you may want rooms were comfortable and relaxing
Cons: The only thing that was not great was the lack of plug sockets near the bed.
Location: It was a 20 minute walk to the centre which was very nice as it was a lovey walk.
I stayed here on business whilst working in the city centre and it is a warm comfortable hotel. The staff were friendly and the food in the restaurant was very nice. It had a very welcoming feel and although some of the d├ęcor could do with a bit of maintenance it was overall a really good hotel. The only thing that was a bit annoying was the lack of plug sockets in accessible places. I use my phone as an alarm and I had to have it plugged in over the other side of the room so not ideal. Also using the kettle was a bit awkward for the same reason.
