Outstanding lobby and reception area. Unique layout and design given that it’s a converted castle. Friendly and helpful staff. Our window didn’t quite seal the first night so there was a lot of wind noise but it was fixed for the subsequent nights. Overall a great facility and enjoyable stay.

The castle was amazingly stylish, a mix of very old and modern that was so well executed. The bathrooms let down the accommodation overall.

Grand and luxurious

Pros: The luxury and the history.
Cons: Not a central location but still very accessable to Central Dublin and the airport.
Location: Bus to city is frequent.
A place to be pampered and to savour with a facinating history. Lovely gardens and atmosphere.
