Historical Traveler Reviews Fitzpatrick Castle Hotel Dublin Killiney
Having just spent 3nts of pure comfort in this most professionally run establisment,I had to write a few notes.First off the General Manager,Mr Nicholas Logue whom l had the pleasure of meeting was so warming and helpful and made me feel like l was a VIP guest upon arrival- he seemed to be so interested & passionate about the hotel-not like other GM's l have meet.The food served in both the beautiful PJ's or the trendy Grill restaurant is outstanding and beats most hotels worldwide.The staff from the front desk to the ladies who turn down your bed are so pleasent and always greet you with a smile-so important.So if you ever have the pleasure of staying the Castle,enjoy. l cant wait to return again.
Effortless Care and Attention to Detail
We have had the most marvellous time in Fitzpatricks celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary - I had asked for a bottle of champers for our room but was pleasantly surprised when we also received a personal note of welcome from the manager, wishing us a happy anniversary! This set the tone for our weekend as we were greated by the best if Irish warmth and hospitality, with none of the posturing and synthetic interest that pervades som many hotels in Dublin (and I include the supposedly 5* Berkely Court and Jurys Towers here!!)
Genuine people, all ensuring you have a great time, but never encroaching or invading your personal privacy.
The pool/spa and gym are unusually well equipped and sumptuous for a hotel, reflecting the nature of this hotel as a cornerstone of the local (welcoming) community.
Both the formal PJs restaurant and the grill Dungeon produced superb modern menus with 'real' food and local produce, teh wine list is comprehensive and reasonably priced and the service is second to none.
Location is beautiful and yet enable rapid links to Dublin city centre.
We shall never again suffer the city centre on our visits to Dublin - this is the lifestyle!!!
Will stay here again
We checked in just before lunch and our room was ready! The staff was so happy to see us and accommodating. Beautiful grounds and in a great location. Only a 15 min walk to the town of Dalkey. Very charming. The food and service was outstanding!! The best part was the bed! Big soft and comfey! Had down comforter and pillows. Very quite too! Lovely hotel and excellent staff!! Five stars for sure!!
Fitzpatrick Castle - wonderful hotel
My husband and I (plus three teenagers) stayed here for a week in October 2004 - we had a wonderful stay. The hotel was super - rooms spacious and clean, and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The superior rooms were well worth the extra - two double beds, sofa and plenty of room. Bathrooms were well equipped. The breakfast was fairly expensive but of good quality with plenty of choice. Dalkey village was lovely: lots of restaurants to choose from in the evening - we particularly enjoyed the Queens, and the pizza restaurant opposite. We dined at the hotel one evening, in the basement restaurant, which was also very good. There is a good DART rail link to Dublin from Dalkey - the walk into the village is fine, but the pull back up the hill after a hard day's sightseeing is a killer! If you want to stay away from the bustle of Dublin, but within fairly easy reach, this hotel is thoroughly recommended. I would definitely stay there again.
Been to this hotel on a number of occasions. Certainly not on the level of say the Conrad Dublin, but a fine property in a nice area. The town of Dalkey, just down the hill from the hotel has a DART stop, some very pleasant restaurants, and interesting tourist attractions in it's own right.
Do suggest you pay the couple of extra euros for a balcony room with a view of Dublin Bay.
Plenty of parking available, and the staff, while not overly ambitious - is pleasant.
Certainly would return.
A memorable experience!
I have just returned from a stay in Fitzpatrick Castle, Killiney. We booked out stay through lastminute.com and got very good rates for our 3 day family break. Overall our stay was excellant what stood out the most was the friendly service from all the staff no matter where we were there was always someone there to help. All of us including the children really enjoyed the leisure facilities with seperate times allocated in the pool for adults and children. Food was excellent, lots of choice and plenty of options for the kids. Our family room was spacious, modern and bright which was a relief to other hotels we had experieced before! A 4* plus hotel with brillant facilities for everyone with beautiful views over Dublin Bay, I would not hesitate to recommend this castle for a truly memorable stay.........
Great Hotel with Great Staff
We have had an excellent stay at the Fitzpatricks Castle. It is a great location and definately a place to stay to experience true Irish hospitality. Will go back!!
Had a super weekend
We have just spent a wonderful weekend on 19th- 20th of Sept at Fitzpatrick Castle Hotel, Killiney. We have two children and the staff were very kind and considerate towards the children. The food was excellent and the atmosphere was really relaxed. The kids had super fun in the pool and the park behing the hotel was great for long walks and had fantastic views of Dublin and the sea. The bedroom we had was very spacious, with 2 kingsize beds ideal for our requirements. In all a super hotel.
Tolerant and very nice.
I just returned from a week stay at the Fitzpatrick for a wedding. I found the staff really tolerant of us Yanks and friendly. It seemed as though they tried to please us. Our room was cleaned regularly, the food was great. The manager ran the rehershal dinner and was great. Had a few small issues. The room we had was at the back of the hotel, right by the dumpster. It seemed as though there was something being emptied in there every 20 minutes, very loud and unpleasant all night long.
They do not have AC in the rooms so you need to keep the windows open, so now we had noise and bugs. I sent some dry cleaning down. Two dresses, both of which I needed back the next night for the wedding. I did not get them back when I was supposed. When I did, they were never even cleaned. There were some unnecessary issues, but it did seem like they were trying.
Not worth the money
Our stay at theFitzpatrick's Castle in Killiney was a huge dissapointment. There was continuous trouble with the prices agreed via email, to the point of them flatly accusing us of lying (thank god for Nokia Communicator). The room was shabby, the curtains had tears and holes, as well as the bathrobe. The bathroom was old and unpleasant.
The room was tiny and the balcony was dirty and unsafe (anyone could have walked right into our room -- and the cleaning staff always left the door unlocked).The staff (except for the concierge) were mostly unkind. Me and my husband travel many times every year, and we both agree that this is the most unpleasant hotel we have ever been to. The only good thing about the hotel was that it was near the village of Dalkey which was beautiful! I am sorry to be so harsh, but considering the price we would have expected much much more. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone.

... that the lecture was really cool but I am not convinced that it actually works. I think it might be more of a placebo effect. After the lecture we got a two hour break to grab lunch and do some last minute shopping. At two we headed over to Leinster Rugby Club where we got a tour of the facility and had a few more lectures. My favorite lecture at the rugby club was the very last one because the doctor showed us pictures of the injuries that he sees while working with Leinster Rugby ...
Day 5 in Dublin Today we traveled to Na Fianna Gaelic Sports Club here in Dublin and got a first hand experience of the Gaelic games hurling, Gaelic football, and handball. First we had a meeting with the chairman about the governance of Na Fianna. Then we watched a couple of videos about hurling and Gaelic football. Then it was time to play games. We spilt up into three groups. My group was the sports management group from Manchester and a group from Neumann University. We ...

They also let us get tour the "boxes" they are rented ten years at a time and cost a lot of money. Each box comes with dinner and 35 seats and allows entry to every game that year. The next thing we did was go out ...

He not only knew of the house but,he knew who owns it now-the Tierney's. Armed with this info we headed for the pharmacy and, sure enough, they called a taxi for us. The driver was the stereotype of an elderly Irish man sans the pipe. He quickly informed us that he was not a taxi ...
