Thanks to Jack and Esther for their superb hospitality. The food was excellent and the rooms were boutique hotel in style. Glin is an excellent base for exploring west Kerry & Clare and i cannot recommend Old Castle House highly enough.

Don't know why we never stayed here before. Everything was so clean and comfortable. The shower was the best one from any place we have ever stayed. The food was really good and the hosts were absolutely brilliant. The only thing, and this is not a criticism, was the absence of tea facilities in the bedrooms. WILL definitely book this as first choice when we visit the area again.

By far, Ester made the best Irish breakfast we had while in Ireland! We had such a nice stay - Ester and Jack were very welcoming and made us feel very comfortable, and the house looked very much like one might envision for a cozy Irish home. The rooms were standard bedrooms, nothing fancy but extremely charming. This was our first night in Ireland and we couldn't have asked for a more perfect experience - a relaxing night for weary travelers.

I have a 10 week contract near Glin and I am very fortunate to have found wonderful accommodation staying at the Old Castle House for the 10 week period.
Ester & Jack have really looked after me and made me feel at home.
My room is both spacious and tasteful with ensuite facility.
The breakfast is something to desire.
The house is in a beautiful setting next to the river and the old castle.

Room Tip: The rooms are all quiet and very comfortable

We were a group that stayed in Old Castle House for a sporting event that was on in the area. The hosts did all they could to cater for our needs which at times may have been out of the ordinary .
The surroundings are beautiful and the rooms are of very high quality. A very relaxing atmosphere.

What a beautiful home! It was exciting having the Old castle right at the front of the property and the stream running on the side made for such a beautiful setting. Our hosts were very pleasant and friendly. Our room and private bathroom were both spacious and elegantly decorated. The full Irish breakfast was excellent!

We enjoyed the great location of the Old Castle House situated next to a peaceful river and old castle. Ester and Jack were very welcoming and gave us great advise on a dinner location, Taste, in Glin. Breakfast was outstanding. We enjoyed visiting with the other guests. Would love to go back again some day.
