The Castle in Castletownsend is a really great place to stay. Seeing is believing and you will not be disappointed. The bedrooms are big and spotless, the staff are friendly and courteous and the Castle is full of interesting and unusual furnishings and paintings. The breakfast is excellent. Well worth a visit. The local restaurant serves up the best seafood... More

The Wild Atlantic Way has opened up so many hidden gems that many of us would have by-passed, oblivious, in the past. On route to Baltimore we took in a section of the WAW which brought us to Castletownshend and The Castle cafe. Beautifully decorated, stylish ceramics, really polished service and high quality produce topped off with a STUNNING and... More

Doubt anyone could be disappointed twitch their experience here- just a fantastic place! Quite off the beaten path but well worth the trip! From pulling into the drive and the views of the water to the hostess taking you to your room, we adored every bit of the Castle.

We had a wonderful stay at this Castle, it is very centrally located to visit most of what West Cork has to offer. The Castle is set very close to the water's edge which made our morning coffee's extra special. There is a quaint little cafe which operates during the day and you can spend the afternoon walking around the... More

The castle has been extensively restored recently. The room we had was comfortable and quite generous in size. The bed was very comfortable and the shower was hot and excellent. Breakfast was very good and cooked individually - really good quality ingredients and I would thoroughly recommend the quality of the black pudding and bacon in particular. Fabulous service -...

The Castle Guest House has undergone a major refurbishment and now combines a 17th Century Castle with 21st Century rooms. Justin (a Townshend descendant) and Sharon, the new owners have opened a wine bar/ cafe in the west wing, providing light lunches and teas in a truly idyllic setting. This must be one of the very best B&Bs in the... More

Where to begin? Magnificent, superb, fabulous, 100% recommended! How often do you get the chance to stay in a castle? How often do you get to sleep in a four-poster bed? We stayed for one night in the Archbishops Room on the third floor at the top of the tower. The room itself has magnificent views on two sides and... More

This was a very nice stay for us. The hosts were very inviting and the rooms were quite substantial, clean with nice bathrooms. There was a nice view of the bay from the dining room. The castle itself is tastefully decorated. We had a great dinner at the pub up the hill that was recommended by our hosts. There were... More

We stayed for one night and I had low expectations as I had seen some negative reviews prior to booking and I also thought that the castle interior looked a little dark and dreary from the photos on the web (I believe that the website is being updated). However, as my father in law grew up in the general area,... More

I had the 'army' room which has a small balcony and a super view over the harbour. Lovely room, terrific interior to the hotel and good breakfast - I highly recommend a stay here, for the views but also because it's a very comfortable hotel.
