"Great Wedding and stay!!! Loved it!"
We had our wedding at the castle hotel on December 30, 2016. We had 65 guests from out of the country staying at the hotel for 3 to 5 days. We loved all of the staff in every area of the hotel. The food was excellent and the accommodations for all of our guests was great. Our wedding was perfect thanks to the help of Sarah Wolfe and all of the staff. The owner and managers of the hotel were present to ensure a welcoming and beautiful environment. It was. Fitzpatrick Castle is a great venue for a combination wedding and guest Lodging. Thank you all!
The Dungeon Bar was lively. The food at the Grill was disappointing, and I'm not sure how PJ'S got an award for brunch, maybe the desserts. All the staff was friendly and helpful. Great massage in the spa from Jackie. Martin was very nice at the bar. A nice short walk into Dalkey that had much better restaurants, and very easy access to the DART staion. Nice place to be close to Dublin, but in the City Centre. No need for a car here.
"Everything great ... Avoid the leisure facilities!"
When on business, my preference is always a hotel with a pool and good leisure facilities. I am rarely disappointed. However on this occasion I was utterly taken aback at the state of the leisure facilities at Fitzpatrick Castle Hotel. I have swum in many pools all over UK and Ireland, including community pools. None were as untidy and downright filthy as this pool and lockers rooms. There seems to be a few new touches, the sauna was nice, except I nearly broke my neck on the puddle of water in the central spa area. And there were new glass dividers in between the dirty moldy showers in the ladies locker room. But really, I was wondering if there are any cleaning staff employed to maintain these facilities. There is mould, mildew, and strange silt everywhere and dirty puddles of water which are a complete slip hazard. The pool could be nice, except it felt like a crèche with all the kids stuff lying around and oversized ugly signage. This pool and its amenities are the worst I have ever experienced, even in 3 star hotels. The hotel was great, staff good etc, but my impression of the entire place was spoilt by the filthy leisure facilities. It could be lovely with a good deep clean, and tidy up!
Had the best night for our work Christmas party. Hotel was lovely. Food was fab. Service was great. Room was huge. Can't wait to go back again. Bring the folks for a treat. Hopefully my job will be back up there again this year. Thank you.
