AA Review

This family-owned and operated 18th-century castle is situated in lovely gardens with mature trees and spectacular views over Dublin Bay. The original castle rooms are appointed to a high standard and are opulently decorated, some with four-poster beds. Bedrooms in the modern wing are spacious many having balconies. Lounges are comfortably furnished in a traditional manner. The Dungeon is a combination of an atmospheric bar and an airy contemporary dining space, very popular with residents of the area. PJ's Restaurant is a more formal affair, opening for dinner at weekends and at other peak periods. There are extensive leisure and conference facilities, with good car parking, and a direct coach service to Dublin airport.

Hotel Description

One of the great Irish hotels. The bedrooms are all well-equipped, with multi-channel television, tea and coffee-making facilities, hairdryer, mini-bar and trouser press. Rooms are also air-conditioned. There are two restaurants, which serve first-class international food.

The hotel was built in 1741; however, there has been a modern extension. The lobby is large and traditional in style; it is spacious, well-lit and welcoming. A lovely hotel for those looking for a castle property, within easy reach of the city centre and Dun Laoghaire ferry port.

Rooms were excellent, very well maintained, airy and comfortable, TV a bit dated. Bar staff were excellent - a great pint of Guiness by hotel standards. Restaurant experience was much less joyous, in fact a disappointment both gastronomically and in service - a relatively dried up platter of fish with no accompanying vegetables or potatoes. Too many staff doubling up on a quiet night but obviously assuming someone else had it covered. Breakfast, however was very pleasant. I stayed for 2 nights over 2 weeks.

This is the second time I have stayed here as I loved it the first time and still do! The rooms are clean, the staff are very polite and friendly, the food in the Dungeon Grill is amazing. As I travel to Dublin for work quite often, I've stayed in a number of hotels around central Dublin and though this hotel is a bit further out, it's worth it.

For the rate charged the quality of the room did not live up to expectations. Wall paper needed redoing. In the room for example. Some dining room staff would need customer staff training, one had a stand up argument with me over changing a table for breakfast. fronton house staff could not have been more helpful. Over all this hotel would not be on my "one to go back to" list..
