could be amazing if they invested in it
Had to change room. Hotel is old and tired.

This hotel is beautiful, I couldn't have been happier for our first time in Ireland. The village of Dalkey is beautiful as well. This is what I expected to see in Ireland. If you take a walk at night, you'll see foxes running around the grounds. We can't wait to return.

Pay up to stay at a nice castle
Looked old, and not in a good way. Carpets were ruff around the edges, wood looked dull, and there was little of the opulence one would hope for staying at a castle.

Great place to stay😎
What a great place to stay👍 Really nice neighborhood fun places to walk and close to town. Most of the staff is friendly and easy to talk to. A beautiful view of the bay from our window. Well kept up place, seems like they always working to keep it up😁

It’s a Castle
Yes other reviews are correct, the Castle doesn't have Air-conditioning in every room. I assure you this wasn't a major inconvenience or problem. The Killiney Castle circa 1847, was located in the small community 10 or 12 Miles outside of Dublin. The train station is in the beautiful little town of Killiney, a 10 minuet walk and all downhill, so convenient and inexpensive to commute into the city with lovely views of the coastal towns along the way. 6.50€ Roundtrip. We spent quite a bit of time with the locals of Killiney, wonderful people, restaurants, pharmacy, pubs, a grocery and it's a fishing village. The Pope will be visiting Killiney in two weeks, needless to say it's a safe, clean and predominately a Christian community. I also must mention the Killiney Hill, just a short walk up the hill from the castle, best views of Ireland, fresh air and there is a cafe at the bottom of the park. I must mention the staff at Fitzpatrick Castle, they couldn't have been more warm, hospitable and kind people. Other than the fire alarm going off after midnight on our last nights stay, we have nothing but complements. Even during the evacuation we met such interesting guests and it seemed like a social gathering rather that a possible life saving exercise. Thank you all at the Fitzpatrick Castle for making us feel so welcome.
