I stayed at Castlewood House for three nights. The rooms were beautiful and spotless, they had everything you'd need and more. The place was so calm and cozy and the breakfast lived up to its legendary reputation! Brian and Helen were so lovely and very helpful. We had such a great stay and would absolutely recommend it!

We stayed in The CastleWood for two nights recently. On our arrival we were met by Brian who gave us a warm welcome and offered us a glass of Bucks Fizz and tea, this was a perfect treat after over 4 hours driving. Brian organised our taxi and dinner reservation effortlessly. Throughout our stay Brian gave us excellent recommendations of places to visit, routes to drive, restaurants to eat in and tips to enhance our few days in Dingle. The highlight of our stay in CastleWood was without doubt the breakfast.... Brian's breakfast is a work of art, his creativity knows no bounds.... I felt Brian's breakfast was inspired by the many beautiful paintings in CastleWood. I really enjoyed the poached pears in champagne and turmeric.... what a treat. The breakfast menu is unique... and I just wanted to sample everything on it... so many original dishes to start your day. I have recommended Brian and Helen's delightful place to everyone since I returned and raved about the sublime breakfast. We definitely will return.

Castlewood House is a beautiful guest house situated a short walk from the heart of Dingle town. It has all the trappings of a luxury hotel but retains the friendliness and intimacy of a local B&B. From the welcoming glow of the candles in the porch to the beautifully appointed bedrooms and sumptuous reading / relaxing rooms this establishment ticks all the boxes. The views are stunning and the food is exquisite. Brian, Helen and their team leave no stone unturned when it comes to caring for the needs of their giuests. I would highly recommend staying in Castlewood House and I can't wait to return there again.
