Sometimes you just need to escape.
Escape your job, escape the city, escape your life — a little break from reality is healthy every now and then.
But where should you escape to? That is the question.
Today we're going to make the argument for Castleknock Hotel & Country Club. It might just have exactly what you're looking for...
A hop, skip and a jump away
Located near the Phoenix Park, the hotel's only 15 minutes from Dublin's city centre.
Using Castleknock as your base, it couldn't be easier to pay a visit to well-known sights such as Dublin Zoo, Aras an Uachtarain, Farmleigh House and Ashtown Castle.
The hotel is also close to the National Aquatic Centre, as well as Blanchardstown and Liffey Valley Shopping Centres, so you'll be kept occupied during your break away from home — if that's what you're looking for, that is.
All the comforts
While there's plenty to do within close proximity of the grounds, the mark of a good hotel is that you don't feel compelled to go elsewhere to meet your needs.
Boasting an onsite golf course, you can spend blissfully while away your day practicing your swing in the fresh air.
Not a golfer? Then you have your worries kneaded from your muscles as you're thoroughly pampered in the hotel's luxurious day spa.
Even if you want to spend your entire stay in your room, you'll be satisfied. Having undergone a major refurbishment in 2016, many of the bedrooms now include Nespresso machines and 40 inch LCD SMART TV’s with premium sports channels included.
All these comforts probably explain why the hotel regularly hosts high profile sports teams the All Blacks and the Irish senior international football team.
You're on a break from reality, remember? So when it comes to food and drink, you're far more inclined to treat yourself that little bit more. And why not!
You won't need to stray from the hotel to be wined 'n' dined in style, however, as its very own Park Restaurant has won the 'Best Place To Eat’ award at the Fingal Dublin Business Excellence Awards for the last two years.
At the rear of the hotel you've also got The Avenue, an informal bar & restaurant overlooking the sun terrace and golf course, which is the perfect setting for late night lounging.
Feeling better yet?
The very thought of getting an escape from your day to day life to a little oasis right outside the city is enough to make you feel calmer.
Now imagine actually going there.
If golf, relaxation and luxurious surroundings sound like your cup of tea, then check out Castleknock Hotel & Country Club.
