ACDM20 Venue: Clontarf Castle

ACDM20 Venue: Clontarf Castle

We love Clontarf Castle so much we thought we would share just a hint of why we think this venue is so special.

Clontarf Castle Hotel is a modern hotel framed by historic architecture. It encapsulates the Irish Spirit with so many tales to tell.

Clontarf, the hotel, is set within a 12th Century Castle. It is a unique venue and steeped in so much history. A dramatic entrance hall greets you on arrival and you cannot help but look up at the Tower and everything around you. From the Suit of Armours standing to attention, to trailing acrobats with silk, Meadow of the Bull – Clontarf captures you and invites you to ‘share the story’.

The bedrooms have a mix of boutique schemes Heritage and Contemporary with a luxury feel. These surroundings are complimented with thoughtful touches such as in room USB chargers to US & European sockets for international guests and hand-crafted Irish toiletries from the Handmade Irish Soap Company.

The secrets of the Castle are brought to life through paintings, photography and sculptures around every corner. There is so much art to see they even provide an Art Map with a trail to explore. There is also a playful side to the Castle, where you can sit on the sit on Regal chairs and take a selfie, hide in the Dungeon or simply have a ‘knight-cap’ in the Knights Bar.
