Firstly, as Castlewood House has been rated as one of the best small hotels in the world, you expect certain comforts accompanied by a high level of cordiality, and we were not disappointed. However, whenever I relive our visit, two amenities, the breakfast and the shower, soar to the top of my memory. The host, Brian, is also an excellent... More

This is the best place we have ever stayed in Ireland and would highly recommend visiting. We have stayed in many 5 star places but this is just fantastic. From start to finish we could not fault anything. Everything is top class. Brian and Helen are very friendly, dedicated to their business in every way. The breakfasts are amazing serving... More

I made an inquiry about booking a room and received a quote and confirmation of availability. Then I followed up with an email confirming the night of our reservation and asked what if anything needed to be done in advance of our visit. Helen did not reply, so we worked under the assumption that we were reserved. The night before... More

From how clean everything is, to how spacious our room was, to how comfortable my bed was, to how amazing breakfast is... this B&B is the absolute BEST one that I have ever been to. Best room and best breakfast. The breakfast includes a buffet of fruit, warm foods, breads. And they have a menu that you can order off... More

We recently stayed at the Castlewood House with our boys. The proprietors, Brian and Helen, were wonderful and provided helpful information on the Slea's Head Drive around the peninsula, where to hear Irish folk music in town and places to explore. Also Brian's incredible breakfast may be worth the trip in itself! It's a perfect B and B to visit... More

My husband and I stayed at the Castlewood House B&B for a night before starting the Ring of Kerry and I wish we would have booked two nights. The B&B is fantastic, we had a large queen room facing the Dingle Bay with a private bath. The breakfast was delicious - Brian is quite the chef! Thanks Helen and Brian... More

We spent two nights in this house and honestly it was a wonderful experience. Everything was just so and the owner's are just lovely, helpful in every single way.I would highly recommend this house and the breakfast with several choices is really nice. We spent a morning touring Slea Head to my surprise the scenery is just second to none... More

We stayed in four different places during our trip to Ireland, and this was by far the best. We felt welcome. Helen and Brian were able to answer our questions, and were just generally helpful and friendly people. The breakfasts were the best we saw in Ireland. The rooms were nice, and the bathrooms awesome. There was a nice collection... More

This is a wonderful quaint inn within a few minutes walk into town. Brian and Helen are wonderful hosts and your feel like you are most welcome into their home. The room was excellent - very clean and up to date. The breakfasts were outstanding. Would highly recommend Castlewood House for a wonderful place to stay when visiting Dingle.

Castlewood House is by far the best place I have stayed in and that includes Ireland and abroad. Helen and Brian are fantastic hosts. From the minute you step in the front door, the welcome is incredible. Brian met us on our arrival and the rooms were just being finished so we didn't check in straight away but that was... More
