Reviewed yesterday NEW

This property is #1 in Dingle for a reason. It looks absolutely brand-new - like it opened yesterday. Everything is in perfect condition and spotlessly clean. The rooms are very comfortable and the bathrooms spacious - and we just had a basic room. The glass of champagne (or sparkling wine?) on arrival is a lovely touch. The breakfast was one...

Castlewood house was the first stop on our 10 night stay in Ireland. It is by far the best place we stayed along the way and now we wished that we would have spent many more days and nights in Dingle! Our room had a lovely view, a big comfortable bed, nice robes, towels and a large jetted bathtub. Its...

My wife and I enjoyed two spectacular nights at the Castlewood House on a recent trip to Ireland. Brian and Helen are delightful hosts offering exceptional accommodations, outstanding local information and the best breakfasts ever. We are already planning another trip back the the Emerald Island with a must stop stay at the Castlewood House.

We booked Dingle for new years celebrations and had heard pretty good things about Casltewood House and the reviews on TripAdvisor also led us to believe we had found the ideal location. We weren't disappointed and it actually went beyond what our expectations were. It was a really enjoyable stay from start to finish. When we checked in Brian was...

My husband and I stayed at Castlewood House in November. It's located a short walk from the downtown strip, right across from the bay. The house itself is quaint and cozy, lovingly furnished in Victorian decor. The food is wonderful - you absolutely must try the oatmeal! All that said, what sets this guesthouse apart is the owners who truly...

A friend had recommended we stay here based on their trip to Dingle several years ago. I hadn't done much research on this hotel, but rather put my faith in their recommendation. We were impressed beyond words. This hotel is probably the best value of any property I've ever stayed in. The service is exceptional with a personal touch from...

Castlewood House was fantastic, I wish we stayed more than one night. The B&B was easy to find and the parking lot was large. You are directly across from the water and the change it tides here made the waterline fascinating to watch. Stepping into the place you immediately had a nice smelling, clean, welcoming and friendly experience. Brian was...
