I would really love to keep this hotel a secret for just my family and friends but I suppose that would be very unfair. . This is a fantastic place to stay, from the minute we arrived we knew we had found somewhere very special. The entrance hall is beautiful, The rooms are fabulous. The breakfast is superb. The decor... More

Set opposite the bay great views from our room, perfect hosts nothing was to much trouble. The rooms, lounge and breakfast room were kept immaculate. The hotel was about 8-10min walk from Dingle town, perfect location.

Our 2 night stay at Castlewood House was delightful. The Kippers and Eggs and Salmon Eggs Benedict were the most delicious breakfast we had during our 2 weeks in Ireland; the accommodations were spacious and lovely and the hosts were very welcoming and interested in everyone's activities. We highly recommend staying at Castlewood.

What elegant accommodation !. Castlewood was everything that we hoped for and more. The standard here was easily the highest we experienced throughout Ireland , with the staff and management making you feel at home and the quality of the food prepared for breakfast was to die for. I highly recommend Castlewood, you will not be disappointed

Castlewood is definitely the best B & B in Ireland! Our family stayed here for 3 nights over Easter & everything about it was fantastic. Everyone was really friendly & helpful, especially with our 2 young grandchildren. The breakfasts are outstanding, we were spoiled for choice. Rooms are very spacious, immaculately clean & beautifully furnished. This a real gem, don't... More

I've been running resorts and Inns for 25 years and this place has it dialed in. The details that take a place like this from good to great are all in place here. Everyone's already mentioned the hospitality, the breakfast, the rooms. What made it for me--the breakfast plates. No, really. Well done.

This is Helen and Brian's Inn along with their twin one year olds. This is a particularly warm and friendly couple with an easy manner and great sense of humor. The inn is lovely with a beautiful view of Dingle Bay. I'm looking at the bay from the window as I write this review. Dingle itself is filled with warm... More

There are thousands of B&B's around Ireland. Most of them appear to be a large house with extra bedrooms. The Castlewood House is on the verge of a small motel, yet operated by one couple, Brian and Helen. As soon as you arrive in the parking lot and walk through the front double doors, you will be able to see... More

We stayed two nights at Castlewood House and didn't want to leave! From our spacious, immaculate bedroom, to the cozy sitting room, to the 5-star breakfast, this stay was one of the highlights of our trip to Ireland. Brian and Helen are wonderful hosts and a great resource for discovering the beauty and food of Dingle! We will definitely be... More

Although we stayed for just one night, we had the best time here. Great attention from the staff, immaculate surroundings and the entire place exuded warmth and hospitality. Breakfast was incredible- including Brian's home-made bread pudding. We actually wish we had eliminated the Ring of Kerry part of our trip and spent more time in Dingle and Castlewood. We enjoyed...
