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

Looking for a place to stay near the ferry in Tarbert Ireland. Drove 4 miles to Glen saw their sign and pulled in. So glad we did. Nice innkeepers, their place was nice, clean & very interesting with beautiful flowers, shrubbery, a river & rapids running alongside the property & a castle ruin from the Knights of Glin. Very neat!... More

We stayed 2 nights just before Easter and had lovely warm sunny days. Highly recommended for the spacious rooms, good value and fabulous breakfasts. Ester was a charming host and accommodating. She allowed us to use a little room on the ground floor to store our suitcases instead of having to cart them all upstairs. Both rooms with ensuite were... More

My husband and I stayed at Old Castle House on our way north for our holiday. The home is beautiful and to have a the ruins of a Norman castle right in the front yard is amazing. The rooms have beautiful antique furniture and wardrobes. Ester directed us to a restaurant for dinner which was delicious. Glin is a beautiful... More

We had a great experience with Ester and Jack! Ester made sure a restaurant could welcome us despite our late check-in, and was very accommodating with us choosing the bedrooms. The rooms are large and comfortable, and the breakfast delicious. The property is beautiful : an medieval castle tower, a charming brook running through the property and under an old... More
