"A little disappointing"
Older, intriguing building, nice large rooms, furnished in a kind of 70's style. Looked great online but was in truth a bit shabby. Supercilious desk clerk the night we checked in. Alarmed us about a potential road closure (for a marathon) at 5 in the morning preventing us from making an early flight. Turned out it was about 10 miles away (maybe 15) and no threat to us at all. Would have been nice if he had had his facts straight before he freaked us out. Admittedly he was new to the area but turned out that we, from the States, knew Dublin better than he did. Overall, a disappointing stay.

"Should not be considered as a castle"
This hotel is not worth the money. It smelled really bad and it was dirty. It did not give the impression of being in a castle but a 2 star hotel. The good thing is that it is in a nice area and one can walk to where the restaurants and shops are.

"Hotel outside of Dublin"
Nice hotel outside of Dulin city center, nice location in a quiet town with reasonably priced rooms. Breakfast was very good, did not eat dinner at restaurant but my guess is that it was highly regarded by all the rewards and people inside. Made reservations about two weeks in advance as places inside the city were already booked and I needed a triple room. Pleased with my choice and would definitely recommend to anyone.

"Needs work..."
We spent three nights at this hotel, in two different rooms, both on the third floor. The rooms we had were not in great shape, with stains and patches on the carpeting, and it looked like the walpaper had been stripped off and then the backing was painted. In the second room, which had a balcony, We were told that the hotel is undergoing renovation, and painting activities were visible at the opposite end of the building - but that doesn't explain why rooms in the condition described were being made available. Apparently, the other fllors were in better shape. Aside from that, the public areas of the hotel were nicely and comfortably furnished, and the lounges and bars, while being lightly populated, were well stocked.

"Could have been nice"
Very nice staff... although we were placed in ran down room. I'm assuming the other rooms may be nicer and more updated since all other reviewers seem pleased. Our room was next to the delivery entrance and trash cans (thankfully it was just a place to sleep for a week). The outside part of the tub was rotting off (it was wood). Mattress was very firm...too firm. The bar, front entrance, and sweet little town are what made this ok to stay in. Sadly, I probably won't be back.

"Grumpy lady"
I like this hotel for its proximity to Dalkey, Killiney and Wicklow. It is not particularly convenient to Dublin city centre, and as far from the airport as you can get. Good parking and good restaurants and pubs. However, the hostess in the breakfast hall could use some major charm lessons. Very grumpy. Also, how about putting in some king size beds?

"Majestic Hotel Great Location"
Located in the beautiful heritage town of Dalkey, the Fitzpatrick offeres an old world charm. The Fitzpatrick is the only hotel in this area, so not a lot of tourist, which makes for much quieter stay than perhaps Dublin, this we enjoyed. Dalkey has many charming shops, great restaurants and pubs, parks, ocean views and nice people. We loved and used the trains to get into Dublin to see the sights. The rapid transit system is easy to use and a convienent station is only a 10 minute walk from the hotel. The hotel provided great service, very helpful staff, rooms with nice views that were comfortable and clean. Beautiful landscape, with expansive lawns and large chestnut trees, where we took full advantage of the outdoor seating the hotel provided. Did eat dinner in the hotel resturant, the food was excellent. Very enjoyable stay at the Fitzpatrick and would stay there again.

"Some major issues"
The address listed for the hotel was Dun Laohaire and it was NOT located there. It was in Dalkey so we spent at least an hour lost looking for it. The hotel itself had a restaurant and a pub which is good since the hotel is very far away from anything. The hotel room itself was very large and comfortable, but when we went to take a shower dark brown chunky water came out. When I called the office to tell them, they mentioned that the water had been turned off and it would be on again in an hour. They didn't seem concerned at all that we only had that one hour to shower before our flight home. They made no effort to give us another place to shower.

We booked this mostly for the kids to have and experience at a castle. Staff was rude and untrained. Pool only allowed kids during certain times. Hair in the shower. They seemed to have a lot of buisness meetings in their lobby making it very uncomfortable to be a guest at the hotel. I would not stay there again nor recommend to anyone else.

THE FITZPATRICK CASTLE HOTEL IS A NICE HOTEL IN A BEAUTIFUL AREA BUT NOT THE TYPE OF CASTLE EXPERIENCE MY FAMILY WAS LOOKING FOR ( WE WANTED AND OLD MEDEVIL TYPE OF STRUCTURE) THIS HOTEL LOOKED LIKE IT WAS BUILT IN THE 1970'S. THE HOTEL STAFF WAS VERY NICE THROUGHOUT OUR STAY, THEY WERE VERY HELPFUL AND TOOK THE TIME TO GIVE US MAPS, DIRECTIONS AND POINT OUT AREAS OF INTEREST IN THE AREA. THE ROOMS WERE LARGE AND CLEAN, HOUSEKEEPING WAS GREAT. THE HOTEL WAS VERY SAFE AND THE SURROUNDING AREA WAS AWESOME. THIS IS A GREAT WEEKEND GET AWAY HOTEL BUT THERE IS NOT MUCH TO DO IN THE AREA.

"Wonderful Staff. Very Helpful .Must Stay."
I loved this hotel. It is rustic and pleasing to the eye. The staff more than compensates for standard rooms. The eateries are all divine. Behind the castle you can take a 30 min walk and on a clear day see Scotland. The view is great and it is very close to DART. If you have not driven on the opposite side of the road I encourage you to use the DART. Taxis are 30$ American one way into Dublin versus 7$ for an all day pass on DART.

"Very unsatisfed"
My wife and I and another couple stayed three nights at the hotel. We were put on he 5th floor. The rooms across the hallway were being renovated. As a result there was dust in the hallway and noise all day long. I travel probably 30% of my time and have never had a hotel do this. It is management's way of trying to maximize revenues while undergoing a renovation. On my first day in the room I noticed the toilet seat was not clean. The rooms are not properly cleaned. All this adds to bad management at the top. A desire to minimize expenses as shown by the breakfast offerings and miserable biscuits provided with tea. We were provided a bottle of white wine as an apology for the construction. At least the receptionist listened but I can buy a bottle of white wine any day of the year. I don't go on holiday often. After our stay we then moved into Dublin, stayed at a comparably priced hotel where the rooms were better and the breakfast was much better.

We enjoyed our experience overall. The gentleman at check in/concierge were very nice and knew their stuff, the lady who checked us in was a bit short and didn't seem to want to answer questions. The facility is being updated but we liked the character and layout. It is NOT handicapped accessible, which wasn't a big problem for us but would be for others. The walk to Dalkey is scenic and not too far, taxi's were everywhere and getting to the Dart to go into Dublin was very easy. We will stay here again when coming to Ireland.

"Lovely hotel in walking distance of train station"
The hotel was a great experience. My husband and I were in Ireland for our honeymoon and found the whole hotel an intimate experience. We had asked for a quite room and they but us at the very end of the hallway in the corner. They also upgraded our room for free. All of the staff was wonderful and very nice. The level of helpfulness of the staff was one of the shining stars of the place. The room could use an upgrade decor wise but the bathroom had been redone and was beautiful. The room was also very roomy and intimate. We were worried about the bed size since European beds and American beds are different but they but us in a big, comfy bed (my husband is 6' 2" and we need the space). We had a nice view of the sea and Dalkey Island from our room. Though we only ate breakfast once at the hotel (it was okay), we tried their other eating options and enjoyed each one. The bars and bar staff are wonderful and, during our last night, they had a piano player so we were able to enjoy some dancing. The walk from the hotel to Dalkey and the Dalkey train station is about 10/15 minutes. The hotel is on a hill, so it is something to take into account when looking at walking to and from the hotel. But to be honest, with the type of eating and drinking we were doing on our trip, all the walking made if feel like we were earning each bite and sip.

"Great if you don't mind a 15 minute walk"
Hotel is very comfortable though one or two areas are beginning to look a little tired (though they are working on some of them). The location is great as long as you don't mind a 15 minute walk into the lovely village of Dalkey with its dart link into Dublin. Didn't try the food at the hotel as great options in Dalkey. Hotel staff are great - if you have to get a taxi to/from Dalkey the drivers can be a bit grumpy but that's their problem...

"Great Experience, Friendly Staff, Gorgeous Area"
My husband and I stayed here recently for one evening. My only regret is that we didn't stay longer! All of the staff were kind and friendly. Our room was spacious and clean. The furniture was very nice and the bed was comfortable. After we checked in, we went down to the 'library' for lunch. The food was great and the unconventional seating made it interesting. Afterwards, we took a walk in the 'park' behind the hotel, as the concierge had highly suggested doing this. Our walk through this park and down to the coast was fantastic and really added to our overall experience. We had dinner in the restaurant downstairs and really enjoyed the food. We did not have an opportunity to enjoy the pool, sauna, or steam room as the facilities were' closed by the time we had finished our dinner and we had to check out very early to catch our flight home. There is a coach that will runs to the Dublin airport and takes about an hour each way and will drop you off right in front of the hotel. This was very convenient. I would highly recommend this hotel to everyone. We had a wonderful experience and hope to have another opportunity in the future to visit Ireland and stay at this hotel again, and next time we will stay longer!
