Our Inspector's view
Dating back to the 12th century, this castle retains many historic architectural features which have been combined with contemporary styling in the well-equipped bedrooms. Public areas offer relaxing lounges and galleries which display an eclectic collection of art work. Award-winning cuisine is served at dinner in Fahrenheit Restaurant, with interesting options in the gastro pub-style Knights Bar throughout the day, and also a lunchtime offering in the Indigo Lounge. The Great Hall is a versatile venue for banqueting and conferences, and is very popular for family occasions.

About the area
It is often visited on a weekend trip, but rushing around is not the best way to experience Dublin. When Ireland joined the European Union, an economic boom began that flourished in the ‘Celtic Tiger’ years of the 1990s – fashion, the arts, food and Irish culture all blossomed, turning Dublin into one of the world’s hottest city destinations. Its transformation has continued into the 21st century with a technology boom.
There is something very special about this small city with its split personality – exhilarating and chic on one side but traditional, with an older generation still hanging on to pre-EU values, on the other.
One of the city’s irresistible charms is its welcoming people; so take time to relax in the pubs and cafes while absorbing the craic that is synonymous with the Irish. Slide away from the touristy themed pubs to discover the real heart of Dublin in its less well known taverns and in conversation with the locals.
