B&B Reviews
This was our second stay at Castlewood, and it was as wonderful as the first. Brian & Helen are perfect hosts. They have, without a doubt the best B&B in Ireland. The rooms are spacious, bathrooms are superior, and the breakfast is the best we've ever had. It's a short, pleasant walk into town from the inn. Thank you for making our stay in Dingle a memorable one.

A wonderful experience. I took my 87 year old mother for a short break and she was delighted with the warm welcome from both Helen and Brian. The room which was ideally located just of the main reception area was beautifully furnished and extremely comfortable. The Jacuzzi was a lovely treat and the breakfast was spectacular. I will definitely be back.

This is an amazing B & B that feels like a luxury hotel. The rooms are huge and beautiful. The breakfast is amazing and the owners treat you like family. this was far and away the best place we stayed during our trip to Ireland. I traveled very heavily for business for nearly a decade and am a very picky traveler. I could find nothing to fault here and it is a true steal.

Immaculate, warm, friendly and very upmarket small hotel. We stayed for two days in April 2016. We had a Luxury Room, situated on the first floor overlooking the harbour to the front and so very quite, immaculate guest room, bathroom with a shower and Jacuzzi bath, large comfortable bed best nights sleep for ages, coffee and tea facilities and lots of storage space. All the common areas were also were pristine and furnished with quality furniture, soft furnishings and paintings. Breakfast, well what can you say, the choice was incredible, well presented, delicious and plenty of it. Service was first class. In addition there was afternoon tea, with scones and cake available in the lounge area on the ground floor. It was Brian that welcomed us when we arrived with a glass of bucks fizz and gave us the feel for the area, showing on a map where the restaurants and pubs with music were situated, advising us on tours etc., nothing was to much trouble for him. We really enjoyed our stay, this is a superb place, congratulations to both Helen & Brian together with your wonderful staff and thank you very much.

This is an exceptional B&B. The owners are totally professionally trained to run a B&B, and it shows. They leave nothing to chance. They welcome you like you were family and treat you that way the whole time. Even though there are a number of rooms, each family feels like they are the only guests. The location is perfect. 10 minute walk to the pubs and center of town but the veiw of the bay is exquisite. The breakfast is fantastice, fresh fruit, cereal, break and a hot breakfast of your choosing cooked to order. The other staff is totally attentive. The wifi works really well even in the rooms. We could upload to internet with it.

Went to Dingle for two nights to stay at Castlewood as I had heard so much about the place...it did not disappoint. Brian gave us a lovely welcome with procecco on arrival, followed by a simple check in & abundance of information on the location, directions, restaurants, activities etc. Stayed in a deluxe room, fabulous. It was clean, elegant, simple, spacious, bright with a wonderful view and spacious bathroom. The room would put many 4/5 star hotels to shame. Another great touch was China cups in the bedroom for tea! Breakfast is top class and a credit to Brian. Supreme bagel with delicious salmon the first morning followed by beautiful pancakes on the second morning. Even without ordering from the menu, there is a lovely variety of juices, fruit, cereal, amazing muesli, cheese, scones etc etc. Another nice touch is the offering of take away hot drinks as you depart for your day trips. Simple but thoughtful. The March price definitely was value for money when you consider the offering. The check out was as simple and as warming as the check in. I have no doubt that I will return several times again! I forgot to mention the Easter egg that was left outside our room on Easter Sunday...it's the simple things. Also lovely staff serving breakfast..... Castlewood is a must for everyone travelling to Dingle! A slight walk into Main Street of Dingle, say 15 minutes but easy to walk once weather is good.

An excellent experience all around! We had a lovely room with a view of the bay, and the gourmet breakfast was delicious and the best we had during our stay in Ireland. Brian and Helen are gracious, friendly and extremely helpful hosts, and the staff was uniformly friendly as well. Brian gave us excellent recommendations on local restaurants, pubs and live music even a running route around town. Helen kindly helped to arrange a tour of the Dingle Peninsula and directed us to the local pharmacy after my husband picked up a bad cold. Our days at the Castlewood House and in Dingle were the highlight of our trip to Ireland.

Everything was exceptional at Castlewood! Staying there midweek and before peak season, we even got a free upgrade, so we had a little extra space and a nice view. But even without that, it would have been totally worth the slight premium over most of the other B&Bs in Dingle. The Jacuzzi tubs in every room were a major draw, and the breakfast was spectacular as well. Brian is a fantastic cook, and the buffet part was expansive and gourmet. The afternoon coffee, tea, scones, and cake were a lovely touch as well, especially in the beautiful tea room overlooking the harbor. It's a reasonable walk to the bars and restaurants of Dingle. They made every effort to make us feel welcome and that we had all the information we needed to enjoy our stay. Incredible hospitality!

I have to firstly apologize to Helen and Brian that it's taken me so long to write this review. I am not very diligent when it comes to things like this. We stayed here in June 2015. Having said that, Castlewood House is one of our favourite places in the world to visit! Helen and Brian are so incredibly warm, friendly, helpful, and hospitable. They make you feel at ease and welcome from the moment you step foot in their house. My husband and I are from Canada, and have traveled to Ireland twice in the past 5 years. Needless to say, we love it there! It actually makes me feel homesick thinking about it... homesick for Ireland... no I have never lived there. : Castlewood House is a joy to stay at. Clean, homey, upscale but still with traditional and old-world charm. Honestly, cannot believe this accommodation does not have 5 stars. We stayed at a couple of 5 star places in Ireland, and Castlewood House blew them out of the water! I'm sure there is some technical reason why, but in our opinion, it deserves 6 stars! DELICIOUS breakfast. Oh my. The pancakes are to die for. Comfy beds. Beautiful views of the bay/harbour. Dingle is my absolute favourite town in Ireland. You will not regret staying here! If I could stay at Castlewood House every year, I would...if only my pocketbook would allow it. : Thank you to Helen and Brian for a wonderful home away from home!

We were not disappointed on our 25th anniversary. The decor of our room was as seen online which was lovely. Being the corner room 10, we had a wonderful view of the end of the bay. Every morning we sat down to a scrumptious breakfast. The breakfasts were both delicious and very filling. Brian and Helen made sure that we had everything we needed to make our stay perfect.

There are so many nice little extra touches in place here, such as blankets at the door for anyone wanting to sit outside and watch the evening close in. The breakfast itself is an experience to be had and is clear to see why it has won awards. Our bedroom was beautifully furnished, exceptionally comfortable and very spacious.

A wonderful stay in a gracious guesthouse. Our room was spacious and very comfortable. Reception on arrival was excellent with a welcoming drink and helpful information regarding the local area. Breakfast was exceptional. The variety of cearels, breads and fruits the fresh and warmed poached selections were a standout was very generous. The porridge was incredible and other offerings on the menu were interesting the ones we sampled were delicious! Special touches like afternoon tea available in the sitting room and take-away coffee wa much appreciated!

Castlewood House was a wonderful stay for us. Brian was very knowledgeable and his recommendations for restaurants and music venues were right on. The tasty, beautifully presented breakfasts with many choices were the best we had in Ireland, and we had many, many good ones. We loved the cozy sitting room with afternoon coffee or tea, where we could relax or chat with fellow travelers.

We stayed at Castlewood House on July 10 and July 11, 2015. This was our second stay the first being in 2011 and when we planned a return trip to Dingle, we knew that we would not stay anywhere else. The accommodations are outstanding and there is no detail that Brian and Helen have not thought of. The location is lovely - away from the hustle and bustle but just a five minute walk to town. The breakfast is equally fabulous. This is a wonderful place to stay and we would recommend it to anyone coming to Dingle.

We were in Ireland for two weeks. Our stay here was the best night of the trip, and we stayed in a couple of 5-star castle hotels. If we could have stayed at Castlewood every night, we would have. It was impeccable. Breakfast was also the best we experienced with a wide selection of made-to-order items, homemade preserved fruits and fresh juices. It's run by the owners Brian and Helen, who are 100% hands-on and attend to every detail.

We can't say enough about Castlewood! From the moment when contacted them for our June stay to our departure-it was a pleasure! After arriving from the Bay Area 10 hour plane ride, 3 hour layover, 4 hour train ride, and 1 hour car ride we arrived to Castlewood! This would be our home for the next four days. We came to Dingle via Dublin for an American wedding in Dingle. We had heard of Castlewood from the wedding website,and a friend that has a friend that lives in Dingle. We cannot say enough about Brian and Helen-perfect hosts! From arranging our car rides, beautiful room, yummy breakfasts, and just a warm welcome after a very long travel day. I'd give them 10 stars if I could. We will be back to Castlewood!!

We stayed at the Castlewood for 2 nights with our teenage children. We had two rooms a double king and a twin bedded deluxe. The property is definitely a 4 star property and meticulously clean and polished. The bathrooms are marble and granite. I always judge a property based on the bathroom. This is a 4 star bathroom : Breakfast is a culinary delight as everything is made to order eggs benedict, pancakes, full Irish breakfast. Breakfast was impressive. The location is a quick walk 8 minuutes to the center of town and we liked being slightly away from the busy-ness of the town. Wonderful hosts, super clean and updated. This is the only place I would stay when we come to Dingle!

We just came back from a week in Ireland and I have to say, Castlewood House was a real highlight. The owners as many others have said, are wonderful and full of good information. We were on the first floor, which frankly threw me when we first walked in as it's on level with the parking lot. NOT A PROBLEM! you still have the amazing view and the shrubs give you plenty of privacy. The room was stunning. From the beautiful white furniture to the fine tea cups waiting for us in our wardrobe. They have thought of everything. Tea in the parlor again with china cups to sip from. Soft blankets waiting for you at the door if you want to wrap yourself against the chill while you watch the sky change by the minute. The breakfast was an absolute winner. Varieties of stewed fruits, breads, eggs, pancakes,meats, cheese, yogurts, jams. We truly felt we were in a special place and we were. We would love to go back again. I perused their small collection of antiques for sale china mostly and came away with a lovely beehive jam pot. They are well priced and a nice touch to an already wonderful experience. Linens too were excellent. After your drive to Dingle don't miss it!, this is the home you want to be welcomed into. I can not praise them enough for the hard work they put in to make this a perfect place to visit.

The price reflected the very high calibre stay. Very prompt communication, excellent location excellent service and gorgeous accomodation. I would like to offer suggestions given that I have raved about your guest house to almost everyone of my family and friends since returning, I have a gluten and dairy intolerance. I regret that I was unable to get a non dairy alternative I.e. Rice / Almond milk for my cereal, these are UHT so easily sorted in a cuppard so I'd reccomend that they be kept in case of the arrival of one of my type!! Foodies with food intolerances I thoroughly enjoyed the breakfast and was provided with gf toast with my breakfast. The poached pears apple and cinnamon, as well as all the preserves etc were magnificent, not to mention my eggs and smoked salmon. I'd like to offer you one recipe that you 'might' consider for us poor souls tortured with intolerances. It's gf df crepes/pancakes, because having witnessed a delivery of pancakes at the table next door I thought it could be done! One cup of Buckwheat flour , two eggs, dollop olive oil, and cup or more of rice milk, blended in a small blitze, served with either soya ice cream and fruit or simply with some of your divine fruit. It's a really simple but delicious treat at weekends and I think having rice milk and buckwheat flour in the old store cuppard could easily grant you the title of food intolerance guesthouse of the year. It's just a suggestion, but honestly the day I left, all rested and warm from bath, fluffy dressing gown, and delicious food I couldn't imagine any improvement on what you already do so well. Perhaps it was the espresso bar on arrival and tea that really impressed but again on departure that added touch of a take away tea going out the door well that just sealed it..if I ever get the chance again...il honeymoon at castlewood!!

This is one fantastic establishment! No detail was too small to notice, the rooms were gorgeous, the breakfasts plentiful and superb, and the customer service beyond compare. Aine in particular was truly stellar...I had a badly sprained ankle upon arrival, and she not only helped me find music, entertainment, shopping, and restaurants that were exquisite, but also showed me the easiest way to navigate the town and find parking. The location was fantastic: right on the bay, extremely near to town yet quiet and peaceful. My only complaint was that it spoiled me for the rest of my journey, as no other hotel or B&B, even the more expensive ones, even came close to Castlewood Guest House. I never wanted to leave! Bravo!

his is definitely the best guest house I have ever stayed in - Hotels at twice the price or more are not as nice.. Beautiful comfortable room with big bathroom containing separate bath & power shower. Tea/coffee making facilities with comp water. Good WiFi connection. Lovely touch was the comp bucks fizz on arrival - such a genuinely lovely lady at both check in and check out. Pleasant & helpful, without overdoing it. Situated a mere 10 mins walk from Dingle Town centre if even that, so it was lovely and quiet.. No noise late at night. The breakfast was FANTASTIC - gorgeous Eggs Benedict with spinach and good, strong coffee - served in the beautiful dining room overlooking Dingle Bay - simply gorgeous! Good selection of cereals, pastries and juices. Really nice brown bread. It was so pleasant to relax and admire the beautiful view while enjoying such a lovely breakfast. We were well set up for the day! The owners came round and spoke to everyone whilst dining, which was very nice. They seemed genuinely interested in their guests and their comfort whilst staying. Cannot wait to return to this fabulous place in a fabulous place... Thank you for the lovely stay !! -:

Our stay in Dingle for two nights in June was definitely one of the highlights of our trip to Ireland, and Castlewood House was really the icing on the cake. I just wish we had stayed an extra day! Glorious weather, lots to do, and a very comfortable place to stay - you can't ask for much more. This was towards the end of our trip, and although all the B&Bs we stayed at were nice, this one made us feel like we were really on vacation. The room was wonderful - the full bath with soaking tub and "American-style" shower was a luxury you don't often see in B&Bs. We had a great view of Dingle Bay from our room at least when the tide was in :. Helen and Brian, along with their staff, were extremely helpful. They coordinated laundry services for us, arranged a tour, provided information about the local area, and just generally made us feel very welcome. Breakfasts were very high quality and the dining room was a sunlit pleasure to be in. I would definitely recommend Castlewood House for guests looking for a place to unwind and relax and enjoy what the Dingle Peninsula has to offer!

Was really looking forward to staying here from all of the reviews. The hostess who greeted us was pleasant enough, but the room was a big disappointment. we had two twin beds and a view of the parking lot - of course the sea was beyond the parking lot but there was no way one would want the blind up for privacy. Anyone in the parking lot could see the whole room. But the beds were so uncomfortable, it put us back days as far as being rested and enjoying our vacation. Take the bed out of bed and breakfast and that is what you get.

Brilliant 5 Star Hotel on Wild Atlantic Way in Dingle Co. Kerry This is the best value hotel that we have ever stayed in. It is by far the best in terms of Quality, Warm welcome, Cleanliness, Room standards, Breakfast choice & quality. My wife and I have stayed here on 2 occasions June 2012 and Feb 2014. We are looking forward to our next visit. I live in Co Kerry in Ireland and most of my hotel stays are in Ireland for work, and have stayed in UK, USA, Europe, and further for Holidays. This hotel is miles ahead of the standard provided by many larger and more high profile worldwide establishments. The hotel is located in the town overlooking the scenic harbour. The interior decor is sumptuous. The owners and staff are extremely welcoming and attentive to your comfort and requirements.

We spent 3 nights at Castlewood at the end of a two-week tour of Ireland. We found our stay here the most enjoyable of any of the hotels and guest houses we stayed in during our Irish tour. The house is immaculate. Our room was spacious, comfortable and well-appointed, and the breakfasts excellent both in quality and variety. The location of the house is good, close enough to downtown that it is easy to walk to pubs or restaurants, but far enough from the centre that the location is quiet, and the views of the bay and surrounding hills gorgeous. We especially appreciated the time Brian and Helen each took to discuss our plans and suggest places to sightsee, dine, find entertainment, etc. They were thoughtful, accommodating and unfailingly warm and polite. We hope to visit again. The Dingle area is wonderful for natural beauty, Irish hospitality and culture, and archeological history. Castlewood House is an excellent base to explore it.

We did go with Global Village, one of his suggestions, and it was outstanding. Our room was beautiful, decorated in Far East themes and was exceptionally comfortable. We had a great view of the bay. Breakfast was outstanding. The hotel is situated west of the town center so it can be about a 15+ minute walk to some parts of the town centre, but it's also right on the way out of town on the very scenic drive around the peninsula.

What an awesome bed and breakfast! Fantastic room! The bathrooms could quite possibly be the best in any type of lodging in all of Ireland. Yes, they are that good. Breakfast was great, hosts are great! Job well done! Will not consider staying elsewhere when in Dingle!

Castlewood House certainly lived up to it's reviews on Trip Advisor and I only wish we had been staying for more than one night. It's very evident from the moment you arrive that Helen and Brian are passionate and committed to Castlewood House and their guests and I would recommend anyone visiting Dingle stay at Castlewood House - very elegant and beautiful but also very cosy and homely. There is nothing they haven't thought of! The breakfast alone was worth driving to Dingle for!! Thanks Helen and Brian and we hope to see you again soon!

Castlewood House was by far the nicest place we stayed during our two weeks in Ireland. The rooms were luxurious, the staff was kind and attentive, and the breakfast was to die for. In fact, of all the wonderful things we did and saw on our trip, I think my husband talks most about the Castlewood House breakfast!

We had one of the best stays of our trip at Castlewood. The location was central, and we couldn't have been treated better by everyone there. Walking into the lobby, I loved the decor, and our room was just as beautifully appointed. The breakfast we were served was beautiful and absolutely delicious, and everyone in our party all six of us agreed that it was the best breakfast we had during our week throughout Ireland. Thank you to everyone at Castlewood for such a wonderful experience; we will definitely be back!

My stay in Castewood House was a birthday present from my family - and what a present! Absolutely fantastic, We couldn't have asked for anything more! It's a beautiful house with spacious, comfortable rooms, a lovely breakfast area, amazing food and excellent, friendly service. We spent 2 weeks travelling around Ireland and Scotland and didn't find anything else to come close to this. We cannot praise it highly enough! Well done Helen & Brian and thank you for a wonderful stay. We'll definitely be back.

I have stayed at B&Bs around the world, and I truly found this stay at the Castlewood House in Dingle to be one of the best The accommodations are wonderful; the food is fantastic, and the personal service can not be beat I actually appreciated the fact that the Guesthouse was a very short walk from the main tourist area of Dingle It gave us a chance to really get a feel of the countryside, and we got to avoid the normal chaos and noise of city centre locations I would HIGHLY recommend Castlewood House for your next stay in Dingle

The owner was very sweet and the location close to the airport was great. Everything was very clean. However, the room was very small and dated. We would not have been able to accommodate our larger suitcases in the room. Luckily it was our last night
