Attended Fitzpatrick Castle last night for my sisters 40th birthday party and was blown away by the service and venue. Freezing night outside but the venue was warm and welcoming. Staff were excellent and couldn't do enough to help. Food was fab. I had my two year old with me, the only child at the family party and the staff were so good to her with a special meal and drink just for her. I don't know what customer service training the hotel does, or whether its just the attitude of the staff in general but they really are amazing. Thanks for making the night so special. Collapse

The Hotel is a nice old castle, located close to the sea, right at Kiliney Hill where you can have a beautiful view over the coast to Dublin after a 10 mins walk up. The service was great, super friendly and professional. The food was ok, no cheese for breakfast and some dishes could have been cleaner but overall it was a nice stay in a cosy and old chic environment, about 1km to Dalkey town and the train to Dublin.

Disappointing return visit.

This is the second time I have stayed at this hotel whilst in the area for business. After an excellent first trip I specifically requested this hotel which turned out to be a big mistake! On arrival I was greeted by the beautiful lobby with its roaring fire and Christmas trees, however I came straight back down to earth when I opened the door to the room I had been given. It was only that I was so very tired that I didn’t turn around and leave immediately. Scruffy and shabby are words that spring to mind and how this hotel think people should pay to stay here is beyond me. The carpet was so worn in places it had holes in it and obviously someone had an accident with some bleach which had destroyed the carpet in other places. I was too tired to go to the restaurant so ordered room service. This was ok but I was pretty disgusted to be given a half used jar of mayonnaise with my meal! The final straw was the bed, I had hardly a wink of sleep all night! The bed was so old and sagging I spent the night trying to climb into the middle where it was less worn out and offered a little more support for my back. I left in the morning without taking breakfast and left a feedback form with reception. Sadly they haven’t bothered to respond to me so I felt I needed to warm others via TA. Collapse

We stayed in Fitzpatrick's Castle Hotel as we were attending a Strictly Come Dancing Night. We had sat in the foyer in the afternoon which is very comfortable soaking up the atmosphere. Later we ate in the bar downstairs, and had a very nice meal. Our room was an at the back of the hotel with a windows facing across to other rooms, the only thing we didn't like was that there were only curtains on so the rooms opposite could see straight into our room unless we closed the curtains. Breakfast was a lovely with a great selection of pastries, juices and hot food. Overall a lovely nights stay. Collapse

It was the tail end of Hurricane Ophelia and it was a very bad trip. Scarcely had I driven off the ferry from France, heading for a family event in Connemara, than my Renault Megane died on the outskirts of Dublin. 'Big job' said the garage, 'it's going to take a week'. Luckily I have kind friends who put me up for the first week, but then the garage rang with more bad news. The Megane had developed another fault, and was going to take another week to fix. By the time I finally checked into Fitzpatrick Castle I was practically in tears, exploding with stress. 'Don't you worry' beamed the very sympathetic receptionist, 'we'll give you a lovely comfy room with soothing sea views'. And she did. It was an oasis of comfort, with not only a fabulous view over Dublin Bay, but a huge divine bed, a deep bath, a desk at which to set up camp for all the phone calls and emails to Renault, and a swimming pool with gym and jazcuzzi downstairs in which to de-stress. I began to feel better immediately. And even better, after a delicious Caesar salad, a glass of chardonnay and some lovely live music played in the lobby (on weekends) on the grand piano. There's a real log fire, too, and a dungeon bar in which to watch the match on tv...the aircoach goes from the front door to the airport, the 59 bus goes from the pub just up the hill into Dublin city...really this hotel had absolutely everything I needed, including long coastal walks by the sea and in the park, both just down the road. Ironically, the reason I chose Fitzpatrick's was that I remembered having had some wonderful meals there many years ago. Nowadays, the food is less memorable (apart from the great Caesar salad) and if the hotel has a weak spot, this would be it. Not that there's anything wrong with the food, it's perfectly fine, just not as great as I remembered it. But there are lots of restaurants nearby in Dalkey, or pub grub five minutes up the hill, so you have plenty of options. In the end I stayed eight nights in Fitzpatrick Castle. It was peaceful, friendly, warm, convenient and exactly what you'd hope to experience in the midst of a stressful situation. The only tiny improvements I could recommend would be (a) streamlining of the somewhat confusing service schedule between the bar, lobby and restaurants and (b) that the piano be played more often, because I couldn't get enough of it. What's more, the bill was less than you'd pay for this level of quality in many capital cities. I'd return to this delightful hotel in a heartbeat - just in a different car. Collapse
