Every so often you deserve to be spoilt and there are few places like Castlewood to deliver such a delightful dose. Personal attention, spacious rooms, superb location, bountiful breakfasts and great location. Allow Helen, Brian and team to treat you to what you deserve, to be spoilt rotten. Your worth it!

Helen and Brian welcomed us with such wonderful hospitality we knew that this was going to be a very special stay. The hotel is beautifully light and airy, furnished with great care and thought. Our bedroom overlooked the sea and had every amenity one could wish for. Coffee and tea are set up in the drawing room and in the... More

Fran & I we're in two minds about writing this review - we want Helen & Brian to be hugely successful - but same time we don't want too many people to know about the place so we can always get back in! - all I can say is we found it faultless with possibly the best breakfast I've ever... More

As many reviewers have noted, the highlight of Castlewood are the owners, Brian and Heidi. They each put in several years of hospitality work before opening their hotel and it shows in the meticulous details of the palacial rooms, the hotel itself and their care and consideration for guests. Despite incredibly busy schedules (including raising twins!) both Heidi and Brian... More

This is a gem of a hotel in Dingle--- or anywhere! Helen & Brian, the proprietors, are warm, gracious and hospitable. Their little hotel is immaculate and perfect, in every which way possible. Rooms are large, airy, supremely comfortable and the bathrooms 'luxe' and equipped with both jacuzzi tubs and separate showers with Grohe fixtures. The morning breakfast is one... More

Spent three days at Castle Wood, and the place is amazing! Helen and Brian are very good hosts! The breakfasts were some of the best I have ever had, and I have been a lot of places! Rooms are very nice and spacious. They set us up with a hiking guide that was tremendous. Location is away from town, but... More

I was travelling with a friend who had stayed at Castlewood House before and I can see why she was so keen to return. It may have been two years ago but they still remembered her. The attention to detail is impressive, everywhere is bright and clean. The staff are tuned in to what you might need before you have... More

Beautiful hotel, amazing breakfast and very friendly staff. It's a ten minute walk to the centre of Dingle, with pubs and restaurants. The boat tour recommended by the hotel owner was great to explore the area. I highly recommend this hotel and definitely would love to come back!

We loved Castlewood House! The location is beautiful, right on the water and a walk into town. The rooms were spacious and the beds comfortable. The hosts Brian and Helen, are wonderful and so accommodating. But the breakfast, oh the breakfast, the best I have ever had. The menu is extensive and everything delicious. The town of Dingle was our... More

We were as warmly welcomed on our third visit to Castlewood House as on our first. The rooms are beautifully appointed. The breakfast service was outstanding. We thoroughly enjoyed the buffet and entrees, and the servers were so friendly and attentive. Helen and Brian have a FANTASTIC small hotel! We hope to return soon.
