  • I wasn't expecting much when I went to visit the castle of Rathfarnham and possibly nor would have impressed me as much as it did if it were not for the guided tour. It is an ancient castle converted into a mansion with a lot of history. Although it is a little away from the Center I think that it is worth visiting it (and ask for the guided visit).

  • It is surprising to find such a place within Dublin city. The original building is from the 1580s with more recent rebuilding in the 18th century. You can go round on your own or join a tour. I would ...  more »

  • I've experienced Rathfarnham Castle from its early days to now. Still a work in progress but worth the trip. The ghost stories are class are not just stories either 😉
  • The tour of the house is very informative. The Jesuit exhibition was very well put together too.
  • Interesting place to visit. A lot history. Good condition of castle. Tea room is pretty good. Nice park for walk and playing with children. Car park for 0.75 e hour at this moment. Recomend

Where to stay in Dublin

Dublin offers everything from luxury hotels to eclectic guesthouses. Explore over 1,000 years of history in the city on foot by staying at one of the hotels or hostels in the city center. The south side of the river has always been a popular place to stay, particularly near Temple University or the tourist nightlife center Temple Bar, but a new crop of attractive options has popped up on the north side as well. For more affordable accommodations, try a hostel or make your way toward St. Stephen's Green for a more comfortable stay at a mid-range hotel. If the artistic spirit of Dublin is what beckoned you, spend your holiday in a guesthouse near the creative Lower Gardiner Street.
