All I can say is WOW!! I am a VERY VERY picky person about my hotels and I can 100% say this was one of my all time favorite places I have ever stayed at. Brian and Helen were so friendly and inviting. Helen chatted with us at breakfast like she has know us for years and sat down with...

Brian you're a gentleman! This B&B puts every other B&B in Ireland to shame and I've stayed in hundreds!!! It was immaculately clean, comfortable, the food was mental ( Oh my God gorgeous!), the views stunning and location perfect

Elegant, comfortable, quiet, & exceptional service! Brian, Helen & your staff trat you like royalty. The price of lodging includes a gourmet breakfast (prepared by Brian) that you don't want to miss. The breakfast is so well known that locals all over town rave about it. In our many travels, we have never had a deep jacuzzi tub in a...

Castlewood is a B&B with a great breakfast and marvelous views of the harbor. The common rooms and the rooms one wstays in are clean , spacious and beautiful . The owners are chasrming and the staff is most gracious. A little pricey for those on a budget but well worth it for those who want to splurge a bit!

OMG! This place is unbelievable! It is possibly the nicest place I have ever stayed. Helen and Brian put their degrees in hotel management to good use. They have thought of everything and you will not want to leave. Castlewood is just outside DIngle, about a 10 minute walk. This is the only, very small, downside. If the weather is...

Located on the outskirts of Dingle, it's a lovely walk to town, provided it's not rainy and windy, then it's a bit of a drag. Helen and Brian are super friendly, giving good advice with a map on where to dine. The rooms are spacious, being a new build, immaculate, and very comfortable. Our room had a lovely view of...

This was a perfect stay. The guesthouse is beautiful and has every amenity you would expect from an exceptional B & B. The hosts are the best feature, though. (Breakfast runs a close second--more on that later) Helen and Brian met us at the door, checked us in and gave a detailed map of Dingle with options for dinner and...

It's true, it's a fantastic place to stay. The night we stayed was an exceptionally cold evening but the Castlewood was a glowing beacon of warmth. We are familiar with Dingle but the b&b was very easy to find. It less than a ten minute walk to the main village. The walk is flat, well lit and pleasant so no...
