      Historical Traveler Reviews Castlewood House Dingle

      Well worth the money

      from

      At first we felt that the price may be a bit steep, but after staying at the castlewood it seemed a bargain.. beautiful house, clean/spotless, large clean rooms and bathrooms, amazing breakfast, warm and attentive service (brillaint hosts), central location, stunning surroundings... i have no complaints and would recommend this to anyone wanting a guaranteed comfortable stay.

      Absolute perfection

      from

      We stayed here in late June for two nights and did not want to leave. Helen and Brian were charming and attentive hosts. The rooms are gorgeous - thoughtfully and tastefully appointed, with comfortable beds and luxury linens. We felt like we were on our honeymoon again. Breakfasts were outstanding. Great location too - close to town - 5 minute walk - but far enough so that it is peacefully quiet at night. We were extremely lucky with the weather - 70 degrees and sunny - but Dingle and Castlewood House would be a welcome retreat even in gloomy weather. Highly recommended and we will be back next year!!

      Fantastic

      from

      Perfect views, huge, modern rooms, super friendly staff. One of the highlights of our 2 week trip to Ireland. Breakfast was fantastic too ! I can't believe that there is anywhere better in Dingle. View from the room (think it was room 10) attached.

      Excellent, Charming

      from

      We had 2 rooms at the newly opened Castlewood GuestHouse, Next door to Heatons, A truly amazing place. Excellent Service, and the best Irish Breakfast EVER!!! The breakfast menu is out of this world, and quite frankly its worth staying just for that.

      Bedrooms are immaculate, jacuzzi baths, power showers, huge rooms with magnificent views of the harbour, truly stunning.... wanted to stay for ever.

      BRILLIANT!

      from

      We had a fabulous time at Castlewood House in Dingle. This upmarket B&B is located overlooking Dingle Bay and it's only a five minute walk into the centre of town. The rooms are beautifully furnished with whirlpool baths. Helen gave us a very warm welcome. It has only been open for three months and they are obviously very proud of the hotel they have created; their enthusiasm is infectious! The breakfasts are great - porridge with Baileys or Irish Mist! You've got to try it once (it's perhaps too much for breakfast). Comfortable lounge area. Great for playing Scrabble or reading. Highly recommended. It deserves to be successful.

      Loved this B&B

      from

      Stayed 1 night in this B and B. It is much pricier than most but definitely worth it! The rooms are all furnished differently in a very attractive way. It is a short walk into town. Dingle is such fun, lots of great restaurants and loads of pubs with live entertainment.

      Breakfast was delicious, fantastic black and white pudding! The only complaint I would have is that ther service at b'fast was very slow.

      I would definitely stay here again!

      So nice we came back twice - in one week!

      from

      We spent two nights at the beautiful Castlewood House in July 2005. We felt immediately at home. A large "family" room accomodated ourselves and our two teenagers more than comfortably. The bathroom was first class with jetted tub and separate shower, marble vanity top with vessel sink, lovely fixtures and great towels. The suite was professionally decorated with beautiful, quality furniture and comfortable beds.

      Breakfast was a real treat - calming background music from local artists in a lovely dining room with views of Dingle Bay. The attention to detail on the breakfast table was greatly appreciated. Comfortable chairs made us want to sit all morning.

      Breakfast choices include the traditional Irish breakfast plus more; beautifully presented - elegant food. Try the porridge with the special additions - MMMMM!

      We left Dingle and continued on our vacation. Within three days we returned to Castlewood House for one more night before we left Ireland.

      Brian and Helen are great hosts and make you feel completely welcome in their home. It was their hospitality, gracious welcome and attention to details that made it so special.

      If you like elegant accomodations you won't be disappointed.

      Wonderful Luxury B&B

      from

      We stayed one night at the Castlewood House, and wish we could have stayed longer. Staff was very helpful, and went out of the way to make your stay great. Breakfast was a real treat - made to order omelettes and specials, in addition to the normal B&B fare. Luxury linens and lots of little extras. Great location with free parking.

      Detail, detail, detail......

      My fiancÚ and I stayed at the Castlewood House, in June 2005. Originally, we were due to stay at this hotel in May, but our booking had been booked for the wrong day and when we arrived it was full. I can't compliment how this was handled! Brian, the owner, made some calls to other guesthouses in Dingle to find us alternative accommodation, and gave us a complementary 2 nights stay, to be taken at our leisure.

      What a great place, everything has been considered, the room (11) was fantastic, it certainly met with my seal of approval, the bathroom was outstanding, with a Jacuzzi bath, just what you need after a hard days sight seeing, little touches like classic books, e.g. Treasure Island, just left casually made it a lovely touch. The only little gripe I might have, is there wasn't a comfortable chair in the bedroom, it was either the up-right chairs, or the bed to sit on, while watching a DVD but a minor detail.

      The communal room was lovely, over looking the bay, with a backgammon board and other classic games for guest's use. Breakfast had a lovely touch, Helen made a fantastic host, very attentive, breakfast was delicious, the menu had a wide choice, the dingle kippers are highly recommended, along with the special omelette of the day. The scones were light as feathers! The decoration on the whole was very comforting, and I felt at home. We will certainly be coming back to the Castlewood House for our next visit to Dingle.

      Loved the new Castlewood House!

      from

      Castlewood House is a new inn on the Dingle Bay. Great location walk to town. Beautiful room and baths and the common areas are gorgeous! Great breakfast and great hosts! We hope we can go back soon. We loved it!!!

      Once again we boarded the bus and headed south. Very soon we entered Killarney National Park. The terrain became hilly and then (almost) mountainess. The winding,narrow roads started to become a problem for the bus driver and for the on coming traffic. The driver, bless his heart, would involuntarily lean to his left when we got too close to the on …

      We were up and out again by 9:00 on our way to Dingle in County Kerry on the southwest coast. Part of the time the country side changed dramatically from farming to craggy, shale mountain sides with sheep and goats scampering all around. We were on our way to a working 2,500 acre sheep farm. The sheep farmer and his 5 border collies worked together liked musicians herding the sheep across the rough terrain. The dogs were trained to respond to commands and whistles ...

      ... nice since we've been here and tonight, for the most part, was quite mild as we toured the peninsula. We took many more pictures than I can share with you now, but added some to give you an idea.

      Tomorrow, we will make our way up to Doolin, even though it may have to be in some heavy rain. I am still holding out hope that the weather will be better than expected! Tomorrow is also Sue's 50th birthday! We have a couple of surprises in store for her, so it should be a lot of fun!

      ... lunch. Minard Castle, what's left of it, rests atop a small rise beside a rocky beach. When we arrive, a lone skinny black cow is walking up the road towards us, mooing along the way. The castle is roped off so we take our picnic to the beach and find a large flat stone, the perfect table for our bread and cheese. The boys climb up and over the rocks, tossing stones in the waves and occasionally coming over for a bite to eat. Genny takes off her sandals, rolls up ...

      ... a worthwhile visit to the visitor centre to sort our itinerary, then proceeded to the Killarney National Park for a boat trip across the middle lake and a walk to Torc falls. Have hatched a fiendish plan to drive the Gap of Dunloe before breakfast tomorrow - usually done on foot or by jaunty (horse and sulky), on account of it being so narrow but no one seems to get up before 10am, so there's a very good chance we'll be doing it alone. ...
