Join Phoenix the Giraffe and uncover a world of magic at Castleknock Hotel 🦒 With lots to see and do, we are ideally located on the edge of the Phoenix Park, Dublin Zoo and Dublin city centre with plenty of fun family activities nearby.
Refresh yourself in our 18-metre swimming pool with a dedicated toddler and baby pool for the little ones. Warm yourself up in the sauna or relax among the bubbles of the jacuzzi for ultimate relaxation. Our children’s playground is also open to all our little guests to enjoy - relax on our covered heated patio area adjacent to the playground while still being able to keep an eye on them.
We are located close to a number of fun-filled attractions such as Dublin Zoo and Ireland’s first rollercoaster theme park, Tayto Park. Dublin Zoo is located only a short 15-minute drive away. The zoo is Ireland’s most popular family attraction and it is easy to see why! Dublin Zoo’s outdoor safari trail follows a one-way walking route while allows you to see, hear and learn about the animals. The one-way outdoor route attraction is perfect to ensure social distancing guidelines are followed and that all visitors big and small will be able to see the animals.
All that excitement is sure to work up an appetite! We have our casual dining 22 Restaurant and Earth & Vine restaurant to suit all tastes with a dedicated children’s menu that can be adapted to all dietary requirements.
