Last day in Ireland. We will be celebrating Saint Patricks day tonight in Dublin. Bright and early to the airport tomorrow morning to fly home.
See you all soon.
It is a rainy day in Dublin so we decide to visit a few educational sites. We head to Trinity College to see the Book of Kells and the Long Room. The line is not too bad and after being hot everywhere we are happy to get a little wet. The wait is worth it and we are soon inside. The Book of Kells is awesome and hard to image the time this work must have taken. We then ...
... dinner disaster, locating somewhere to eat tonight was left totally up to Dane. We headed to an area one of the tour guides had recommended & ended up at a lovely burger restaurant that turned out to be New Zealand cuisine.
Tomorrow morning we pick up our rental car & head to Kilkenny.
So yeah, we ramp up at Terminal two, through check in & security like a breeze, enough time to peruse the shops and grab myself a new pair of sunglasses and head to the gate.
We board the plane and wait. Wait some more before being told that there are some techincal difficulties. Wait a while longer before being told that the eagle-eye'd co-pilot had spotted a dent in the fuselage & ...
... famous cliffs. At the vista of the hill was O’Brien’s Tower reminiscent of a castle tower. The 1835 structure wasn’t open to the public, since it appeared we were the first tourists to arrive for the day. While we were there, about 12 tour buses arrived in the parking lot, so the park was gradually filing up. Looking out over the cliffs, the sounds of puffins could be heard from below. In the distance you could see the Aran Islands.

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.
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!!)
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!!
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.
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.
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.
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.
