Tripadvisor Award Winning Guesthouse/B&B. Our third stay in 3 years with Brian and Helen and they continue to impress! Fantastic room overlooking the bay and a superb breakfast with warm and welcoming staff make this guesthouse my favorite stay anywhere in the world. A ten minute walk brings you to the heart of Dingle with great seafood restaurants and amazing traditional pubs. Do not miss a stay here if you come to Ireland. I promise you will fall in love with the Castlewood too.

Castlewood House is extraordinarily good. The breakfast is as wonderful as everybody says, but what really sets the place apart is the owners and staff. Everybody seemed genuinely interested in their guests comfort. We shall definitely be back

What a wonderful place. This is by far the best Guest House my wife and I have ever stayed in. The welcome, the room,the breakfast and the staff were exceptional. There are not enough supoerlatives to describe the fantastic experience. This was, indeed, a 5 star experience and a must return.

My wife won a night's stay at this B & B but we were so impressed we'll definitely be coming back and paying next time!!
Located a 5 minute walk outside of Dingle with lovely views over the bay.
Everyone we met were very both welcoming and friendly.
The building is relatively new but is furnished throughout with real antiques and is extremely comfortable. We had a massive bed and lovely spa bath with lots of little bits and pieces (argan oil soap, body lotion etc) to add to the luxury feeling.
However breakfast is the highlight here. As well as the usual cooked offerings (full Irish, kippers, scrambled egg etc etc) you also get some more upmarket choices e.g eggs Benedict or eggs Florentine and the final icing on the cake is the breakfast buffet which was just outstanding in its variety and quality. There was really too much to mention here but just as an example there were numerous different juices, stewed and fresh fruits, seeds/grains, oh so fresh breads & cold meats.

Went to Ireland March 2014 and stayed two nights at Castlewood. It was great. Very clean, first class, great breakfast, close enough to town to walk--so easy to get home from pubs-and the staff was great. I can't think of anything they could have done better.

Thanks to Brian and Helen for a wonderful stay. Very friendly and accommodating. If you are planning a trip to Dingle look nowhere else - this is your place.

The room was beautiful, very spacious and brilliantly decorated/appointed. The same can be said for the lovely bathroom.

The breakfast really is as good as all the reviews say. I came here with understandably high expectations and left very happy with our experience. Can't recommend enough.
