I stayed at the Castle Townshend in December, shortly before the season ended. The castle is not a reproduction, nor is it a hotel. The experience is closer to staying in someone's home so please don't expect a modern hotel. The castle is lovely and there are many historic furnishings and artwork. We arrived to a lovely fire in the... More

This review is way overdue, can't believe it's been over 2 years since we stayed at the castle:(! If you want to stay in an authentic castle then this is the place...this home has been in the same family for literally centuries (actual historical furniture and pictures of ancesters on the walls) which is hard to come by these days!...

Granted we were up under the eaves and sloppy floors are fine in and old building, but it was pretty clear that no maintenance had been done in the past 50 years. The sheets were thin, old and I wondered if they were ever white. The reception was unfriendly. Almost as if our presence was resented, rather than contributing to... More

We did not let a very unwelcoming host spoil our visit to "the. Castle." Obviously after a very successful season, our host's attitude was markedly - " take it or leave it " Historicly a great experience. Lovely position and views. Friendly Zero!

We wanted to be in the West Cork area for a five day stay so we could explore this lovely area and use one location as a base. We liked the idea of a castle experience, and The Castle provided it with comfort and a sort of quirky style. B&B rates were reasonable, so we didn't expect the grand treatment... More

Historic castle with period features. Could not have a better location, the views are exceptional and it's so quiet! The beds are really comfy and everywhere was clean. All of the staff are very nice and helpful. Would recommend to anyone looking for a peaceful setting and to unwind. We went to eat in Skibbereen and found a few restaurants... More

We have just returned from a week in the appartment at the castle and it was fantastic. Although it is not all mod cons what would you expect in a castle. The view is to die for, straight onto the harbour, big bed which was comfy, kitchen with everything we needed, Great couple of pubs in the village one with... More

Our stay at Castle Townshend was lovely - we had a wonderful room with an incredible view over the harbour. Anne was a gracious host and breakfast was delicious. We went to Mary-Ann's for dinner and had a really great meal.

We came upon this quite by chance and so glad we did! The castle was impressive and full of character and the setting was simply stunning. The room was very comfortable and we were lucky enough to get a room with a balcony. Ann, the owner, was very friendly had all the time in the world for us. We stayed... More
