Castleknock Hotel has completed its €7-million development, which includes 52 new bedrooms, a state-of-the-art luxury spa and an upgraded leisure centre.
The development, which began in January 2017, has increased capacity at the award-winning 4-star hotel from 138 to 190 rooms.
The Dublin hotel’s lavish spa was built with one purpose in mind: opulence. Guests can relax and unwind with a massage, facial, nail treatment, makeup and tanning session, BIOTEC skincare, or a seaweed bath in one of six dedicated treatment rooms. The Spa is stocked with Elemis and VOYA products, two premium brands that use natural, organic ingredients.
The Spa complements the hotel’s recently refurbished leisure centre, which features an 18-metre swimming pool, sauna, steam room, Jacuzzi, and a gym newly equipped with modern machines and upgraded dressing rooms.
Castleknock Hotel has also added two new restaurants. Under the guidance of celebrity chef Neil Kearns, Earth & Vine follows a farm-to-fork ethos, serving a contemporary menu of artisanal food sourced directly from local farms and producers.
For more informal occasions, guests can enjoy Italian and Sicilian favourites, with a Castleknock twist at 22 Bar + Restaurant.
Commenting on the finished development, which has also seen the introduction of 25 new jobs, David Kelly, Chief Executive at FBD Hotel & Resorts, said: “The completion of the development at Castleknock Hotel is a landmark moment for us and a fitting end to 2017 which has been another very positive year for our Group.
“More bedrooms, more luxurious services and more dining options mean we can meet a growing demand from both the local community and the wider domestic and international markets, especially guests from mainland Europe.”
He added: “The Spa is a particularly important addition. With an emphasis on premium brands and a premium experience, The Spa makes Castleknock Hotel a real contender in the luxury hotel space.”
Nestled just 15 minutes from Dublin city centre and 20 minutes from Dublin Airport, the Castleknock Hotel offers luxury accommodation, a golf course, spa and dining options.
Opened in 2005, the Castleknock Hotel is part of the FBD Hotels and Resorts Group, which includes Faithlegg in Waterford, and Sunset Beach and La Cala Resort in Spain.
