Four star ? more like unleaded

Bad (2.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on April 14, 2010

I presume that 'castleknock' of the VT Database refers to the Castleknock golf and country club.

The hotel is very much a 'celtic tiger' venture with a large block of souless rooms fitted out to the four-star corby trouser press standard.

Nothing wrong with that, in that if you can get a good deal then it is a comfortable place to stay ' in the country'. Even though it feels rural it is within the M50 motorway that tightens like a belt around Dublin. Rather like certain middle aged men the belt dosen't really do its job as the suburbs of Dublin spill out into the surrounding conties like a belly of port pies and beer.

It's all just a bit too manufactured for my taste. Why have expensive LCD screens in the lobby continually running a DVD of a log fire when you could have just built a real log fire in the first place ?

Unique Quality: The hotel has an excellent pool (for leisure swimming - don't try and do a workout here) with two smaller pools for toddlers and little people. This is wonderful if your kids are just on that point of learning to swim but lack confidence.

From the pool you can see one of the holes of the golf course. The golf course is, apparantly, well regarded although as I am still sexually active I have no interest in golf.

The piece of wasted grass on show is what I believe they call a 'signature hole', more like an arse with a name on it !
