Right in the heart of Dublin, the city’s oldest hotel is a Georgian classic offering family-friendly accommodation with outstanding Irish hospitality.
A distinctive laugh can be heard around the corners of the grand Georgian staircase at Dublin’s Castle Hotel. The owner is regaling his hotel guests with a story about his revolutionary father, who once boxed in Madison Square Gardens.
Fionn MacCumhaill, together with his family and hotel team, has been welcoming guests since 1987. He will have you know that the Castle Hotel is Dublin’s oldest hotel, founded in 1809, consisting of nine interconnecting Georgian mansions.
Guests feel at home in what is a deceptively large four star hotel with 130 comfortable bedrooms within walking distance of Dublin’s well-known attractions and museums such as the GPO, Hugh Lane Art Gallery, GAA Croke Park Museum, National Botanic Gardens, and principal shopping districts.
While the hotel is full of old-world charm, period staircases, marble fireplaces, spacious bar, lounges, and restaurant, the mix of modern en suite bedrooms and heritage suites retain the Georgian splendour of these historic buildings. The Castle Hotel is one of the few hotels in Dublin that has family rooms large enough for two adults and three children.
With all the modern amenities, guests also love the traditional touches such as afternoon tea in the Old Music Shop Restaurant or dinner in the unique Castle Vaults.
As one of the regular guests always says, “My home is my castle, but when in Dublin the Castle is my home.” Why not make the Castle your home for your next trip to Dublin.
