The Castle Hotel, located at the northern end of O'Connell St., has a bit of a split personality. It’s housed in a Georgian building and generally decked out in the kind of ornate décor that might inspire one to run out and buy a corset, but some of its 131 rooms are plain Janes.
The Castle Hotel’s simple rooms are small, cheerful and furnished with little to no style (wall mounted pressboard headboards, and low ceilings), while the its more dramatic rooms are stuffed with dark wooden antiques and adorned with crown molding. All rooms, however, benefit from free Wi-Fi, TV and coffee and tea making facilities.
All rooms have private, very small bathrooms.
If you can get one of the antique-furnished rooms, then go for it. Otherwise think twice about staying at the Castle Hotel—there are plenty of similar lodgings with similarly plain décor that are closer to the city center and similarly priced, if not cheaper. Either way, you should pop in to take a look at the magnificent staircase and elegant sitting room. Then have a drink at the charming, old-fashioned bar.
Breakfast is included in the room rate.
