This was our second stay and it was just as we expected. Brian and Helen are perfect hosts. The rooms are beautiful and the breakfast is outstanding. We spent three weeks in Ireland and planned our trip dates so that we would have four nights at Castlewood. It is the best place in all of Ireland.

I arrived here after a flight cancellation and número use disruptions in my travel plans and Brian and Helen and their staff have pampered me and welcomed me in an amazing way. My room is awesome with just about everything I could ask for. The breakfasts are spectacular. The view of the bay is incredible and the hospitality is at... More

We got a welcome drink on arrival which was a lovely surprise. Brian was pleasant and most helpful. The bedroom was perfect. Bathroom with jacuzzi bath was great. Breakfast porridge was delightful and beautifully served . However I was disappointed with the 'eggs benedict' - the eggs were served on cold ham instead of bacon, the muffin was not toasted...

The rooms are spacious, quiet, and well appointed with quality furniture, warming towel rack, coffee and tea. The breakfast was among the best I have had at other elegant B&Bs. We appreciated the map of downtown Dingle and the description of various restaurants and music venues when we checked in. This was given while we enjoyed a mimosa. Later there... More

This facility is absolutely wonderful!! It combines the best of both worlds - very attentive and detail oriented hosts and a recently built facility that was very well designed and in a great location. The bathrooms are luxurious. The breakfasts were absolutely amazing- numerous choices for the main meal, and a buffet bar that had an incredible array of fruits... More

This was our second visit to Castlewood House and we remain truly impressed with the incredibly high quality and standards which Brian and Helen maintain here. The staff are excellent, friendly, warm and actually interested in their guests. As can be seen from other reviews, guests are running out of superlatives to describe this place. Why anybody would not chose... More

Castlewood House is quite simply as good as it gets. Starting with the location, it is on the main road, across from the water, just a 5-10 minute walk from the business district in Dingle. It's far enough away from town that it's very quiet, but an easy walk to get there for an evening out. It has off street... More

It may be that I am "carrying coals to Newcastle." But, to mix the metaphor, I feel compelled to join the chorus. Castlewood House is, quite simply, one of the very finest guest houses in which I have ever stayed. It sits just outside Dingletown overlooking the bay. From our very comfortable, spotlessly clean room we could watch the beautifully... More

The rooms are very luxurious and well appointed, beautiful furnishings and lush pillows. The breakfast is amazing and one of the best you will have while you stay in Ireland. It's the perfect place to rest your feet after a hard day of walking and taking in Kerry's amazing scenery.

We had a two night stay in this beautifully appointed guest home located on the Dingle Harbor. Helen's hospitality and Brian's culinary magic were the foundation of the experience. Our corner room was spacious with glorious views providing us with a resting place after the excitement of the dingle peninsula and the fun of shops and pubs in town
