NEED SOME TIME OUT in a tranquil, 4-star retreat that’s also in a brilliantly convenient location, on the doorstep of Dublin?

The award-winning 4-star Castleknock Hotel is set in beautiful grounds close to Phoenix Park, Dublin Zoo and the National Aquatic Centre.

Located just outside Castleknock village, it’s only fifteen minutes from Dublin city centre and twenty minutes from the airport, yet it has been designed as a relaxing, countryside setting.

After a day of exploring and fresh air, relax and spend some quality time in the surrounds of the hotel, enjoy a delicious meal in the new Earth & Vine restaurant before retiring for a great night’s sleep.

We’d like to offer one lucky Journal reader a two-night break for two at Castleknock Hotel, with breakfast on both mornings and dinner on one evening of your choice.
