It is hard to say how wonderful this place is in a small space. When we arrived, Brian greeted us with a Mimosa. What a lovely and welcoming gesture! Our room was absolutely beautiful in every way. The bed was so comfortable, the magazines and books to enjoy were such a nice touch. The bathroom is gorgeous....a towel warmer, nice... More

Just back from a great few days in Castlewood to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary. Brian and Helen made our trip so memorable. Fantastic view from our room(number 10), breakfast was outstanding and staff were extremely helpful. The whole place was spotless and the attention to detail was perfect. We are recommending Castlewood for a luxury break away and we... More

I wish we had budgeted more than just one night at this hotel. Unbelievable service, beautiful room, great location. Mimosas on arrival as well as all the attention Brian could provide even with others waiting. He really made you feel like you were visiting a relative in their own home. I already had a list of pubs we planned on... More

What a lovely spot! Brian and Helen have taken great care to lovingly welcome guests into their large and beautifully appointed home. The rooms are cheerful and tastefully furnished, antiques with a touch of whimsy -- I especially liked the bright pink bulldog pillows -- and the service is top notch. Our 22-year old son had to do an overseas... More

On setting out for an impromptious trip to Dingle as a treat for my mum and daughter, my expectations were far exceeded by the whole experience at Castlewood. The service and quality was faultless with some really nice homely touches.

When I planned our trip for our 30th Anniversary I made sure Castlewood House was where we would be staying on the special day. This was our second time staying here in five years. Brian and Helen are outstanding hosts. They were very accommodating when plans with friends and family changed slightly. You will not be disappointed with Brian's cooking.... More

My girlfriend and I stayed at this magnificent house in early August 2015. We came to Dingle from the Europe Hotel in Killarney so we were expecting to lower our standards a little - how wrong we were! From the Buck's Fizz and warm welcome upon arrival until checkout Brian and Helen took care of our every need. We booked... More

A recent trip to Ireland brought us to the Dingle Peninsula and we selected Castlewood because of its location and its top rating on Trip Advisor and in the Irish Travel Press. Helen and Brian were perfect hosts during our weekend stay to tour the beautiful Dingle Peninsula. Brian shared excellent advice on local Dingle pubs to experience traditional Irish... More

We had a wonderful relaxing stay in Dingle because of this excellent B&B, both Brian and Helen gave us a great welcome and looked after us all weekend. The breakfast had such a variety of things to choose from and made to order when you placed your choice with waitress. Great location within walking distance from the village, restaurants and...

What can I say? I have stayed in many B&B's throughout Europe and this has to be rated one of the tops. The rooms were amazing, staff was outstanding and breakfasts were great. The host , Brian, was very helpful and accommodating. Keep it, great job!
