We chose this hotel as it was a safe choice based on Tripadvisor reviews and we were not disappointed. The place is well run by the husband and wife team of Brian & Helen, whom we got the privilege to meet during our stay. As we were early, we had to wait a bit before being able to check in... More

This is my favorite B&B in all of Ireland!!! I'm very particular about where I stay (I even bring my own blanket). The rooms are spotless and roomy. Helen and Brian greet you as if you are family and do everything they can to get you where you need to go. The breakfast is to die for and you will... More

I heard Helen on the radio over 2 years ago and I have been dying to stay in Castlewood ever since (I had a booking made last year but had to cancel unfortunately!), We booked two nights in a deluxe room well in advance of our trip as this place is busy. Brian greeted us on arrival and offered us... More

We loved Dingle, who knew it was such a foodie town. Staying at the Catlewood House made it almost perfect. Brian and Helen were fantastic hosts with a mimosa at check in and wonderful advice for what to see and where to eat. Pinch The house was beautiful and breakfast was absolutely fantastic. We had proseco in the front room... More

We just came back from a week in Ireland and I have to say, Castlewood House was a real highlight. The owners as many others have said, are wonderful and full of good information. We were on the first floor, which frankly threw me when we first walked in as it's on level with the parking lot. NOT A PROBLEM!... More

We cannot write enough spectacular things about Castlewood House. The bedrooms are beautifully decorated with all updated bathrooms. Jacuzzi tubs and oversized showers. Brian and Helen are beautiful people that care for each guest like they were the most important person there. The huge bonus of lodging here is the incredible breakfasts that master chef Brian cooks. We will tell... More

Excellent small hotel, easy 10 minute paved walk along the harbor to the center of town. Very clean and modern, room was large and laid out nicely. There is no air conditioning, but in May the room was comfortable with the windows cracked for good cross ventilation. The hotel is far enough from town to remain quiet, but still easy... More

My wife and I recently spent four nights at the Castlewood House. We had a room upstairs facing the harbor ..... king size bed and very spacious bathroom. This was the most comfortable accommodations we had during our three week Ireland adventure. In addition to Brian and Helen being gracious hosts, their staff were also engaging and top notch. I...

Outstanding!! This was the best place we stayed in Ireland and I only wish we could have stayed more then one night. The incredible welcome we received from Helen when we arrived, from greeting us warmly to helping us find places to have dinner and to hear music, the beautiful room with very comfortable beds and a great bath, and...

It has all been said. Really excellent small hotel run by a lovely couple and in an absolutely beautiful part of the world. Dingle is a great location - a pretty and friendly town set amongst the most stunning scenery.
