Clontarf Castle Hotel Dublin
Voted Business Hotel Of The Year 2008 by Georgina Campbell’s Ireland Guide, the Clontarf Castle hotel offers flexible conference facilities and easy access to the main office parks and industrial estates on Dublin’s Northside. Located in an ivy-clad former castle, the style of the hotel’s public areas and bedrooms are quaintly old-fashioned rather than modern and incorporate many Tudor touches.
Clontarf Castle History
Irish chieftain Brian Boru gave the Vikings one of their rare defeats at the former port of Clontarf in 1014. The earliest parts of Clontarf Castle date back to 1172. The main building was re-built in 1837. The castle is hidden away from the town on its own, secluded grounds and housed a cabaret for 25 years before it became a hotel in 1998.
Clontarf Castle is located in the quiet, elegant seaside town of Clontarf, just to the north of Dublin's city centre.
