“Sensational accommodation experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

This is a spectacular place to visit. Dingle itself is a lovely town and castlewood is only a short walk away. The beautiful view over Dingle bay is matched inside, with lovely decor that iis almost regal with clean wonderful room. The suite has an amazing jacuzzi bath. Then there is the breakfast....the complete package

at the Castlewood House in Dingle (Dingle was about our favorite place on our southern itinerary in Ireland), sparing no expense to make this property shine! This is a new property, built to blend into the other older buidlings in Dingle, job well done, everything is well thought out and details were noted. Floors, paint colors, interior furnishings, exterior landscaping, fabrics, moldings....they have done an excellent job. The inn is comfortable, classy and has a relaxed, inviting ambiance. There is tea service in the afternoon, they sell wines by the bottle for your own happy hour and breakfasts are served in a lovely dining room overlooking the bay. Food delicious, lots of homemade jams, fruits marinated in interesting marinades, full extensive menu for hot orders...much more extensive than any other place we visited and they were finalists for the best scone in Ireland! Very friendly, helpful and considerate staff..from check in to service to check out. Location is perfect , just very slightly at the end of the main area, within walking distance....good parking in front of lodging and you are right in the direction to explore Dingle peninsula later. We loved our time here, the bedroom well decorated, bath was the best bathroom facility we encountered...best shower in Ireland!! And was brand new..with nice toiletries. My only negative comment is once again mattress was not particularly comfortable, just questioned why all the mattresses held the same discomfort level...but oh well...! That is minor in the scheme of things...highly recommend Castlewood House.

Room Tip: ask for a room away from the parking lot, something overlooking garden area ...

I don't think I have ever come across an establishment on Tripadvisor that has elicited such unqualified praise as has Castlewood House but having just spent 3 nights there, I can now understand why this is so.
No need to repeat the many, many accolades of so many previous reviewers, suffice to say that Brian, Helen and there staff put on a peerless show. Castlewood House is immaculately maintained, the rooms beautifully furnished and comfortable, the service superb - and their now legendary breakfasts in a league of their own! The attention to detail, in every respect, is quite astonishing.
Dingle itself, and with the Peninsula on your doorstep, has so much to offer. Castlewood House provides the perfect base and is also excellent value for money.

Room Tip: We booked a deluxe room which was spacious, as was the well appointed bathroom. Well worth the littl...

We spent 2 enjoyable nights at Castlewood. Brian and Helen make every effort to make sure the guests are happy and well looked after in their quite new, purpose built BandB. The rooms are well designed and comfortable, ours had good views over the water. They have good advice for the guests about restaurants and sight seeing as well as giving us a good breakfast which basically fuelled us until dinner! Would definitely recommend to Dingle visitors.

Absolutley nothing negative to say about this stay. It was the highlight of our overnight stays in Ireland. Brian, Helen and the staff were wonderful. The breakfast was unbelievably good. Our room was huge and we could see the bay from our room. We asked for a fan since there is no air conditioning. WIFI was good. It is several blocks from downtown, which is walkable, but we chose to drive into town. It also was our first at a B&B and I feel we will be disappointed if we ever stay at another B&B because this was 5 star plus!

I can only echo what everyone says about Castlewood. Superb. I try to reach for adjectives to do it justice. They have thought of everything to make you comfortable and never want to leave. Very convenient walk into town, near the music and shopping. Good wifi connection, a nip of port before bedtime, a breakfast menu that runs 2 pages of specials plus fresh bread pudding and stewed fruits. The eggs Benedict Supreme is a work of art.

My family traveled to Ireland earlier this month, and we had 4 rooms booked at Castlewood House. This is the first time we have stayed at a B&B....and we LOVED it! Brian was so nice and welcoming to all of us. The room reminded me of staying at my Grandma's house and it felt very cozy. The sitting area was nice, and they had tea and coffee available at any time. Breakfast was also delicious in the morning and had a wide variety of things to chose from. You could also take coffee and tea to go if you wanted. We also sat out on the lovely patio and had some wine and just admired the beautiful views! It's a quick walk to town and you can enjoy everything that Dingle has to offer! Castlewood is such a nice place...we would recommend it to anyone and we hope to be back again someday!
