Pulled up here in the evening after a day of traveling and Ester made us feel very welcome. Our room was clean and breakfast was lovely. I found the bed a little too firm but my husband had no complaint. Thanks so much.

We survived the rainy Ireland summer by staying in the lovely Old Castle House and ending each night with a pint from the local pub a block away. Great breakfasts, warm bed, and the quiet murmur of the stream outside the window kept us happy for three days while we ventured out to see what we could find. Highly recommend... More

Booked as last minute accomodation for a business trip from the UK, I was apprehensive as I don't often stay in B&B's. After a long drive to the hotel I received a warm welcome from Ester and Jack with some hot drinks which were much appreciated. I had issues with my work vehicle for which Jack suggested some great advice,... More

This was one of favorite stops on our first trip to Ireland. Had no reservations, saw the sign on the side of the Dunn Pub which is owned by the Owners son Hugh. Followed the road down to the gated entrance which led to a beautifully landscaped little piece of heaven. Ester & her husband Jack were the perfect hosts... More

This is one of my favorite stops on my first trip to Ireland. I hope to visit again, and also hope to stay again at Old Castle House. Our hosts, Jack and Ester, are great people and so very friendly. Ester's tea and cake are dreamy! An overall fabulous experience.

The hospitality was great in Old Castle house. Upon arrival we were given a nice cup of tea with some cake. Jack and Ester provided us with great information for our road trip. Jack helped us by showing all of the great areas to explore in Kerry on his iPad (Ring of Kerry, Dingle and Glengariff). The grandchildren were also... More

This is a very nice home and the hosts, Jack and Ester were very helpful. I would recommend this home and location. We went to BunRatty Castle for a Medieval Feast and retuned late in the evening. Breakfast was very good.

We had a wonderful stay at the Old Castle House B&B. The room was restful and beautiful, with a pretty stream outside our bathroom window, as was the rest of the house and the grounds. We enjoyed exploring the castle ruin near the entrance, the town of Glin, and playing with Swift, their English Springer Spaniel (he is tireless)! The... More
