“top notch B&B!”
Reviewed 22 March 2012

This little B&B is truly a magical place. The breakfasts are more like feasts, check out their website for menus, you will be surprised to find things like "Fresh Porridge served with a dash of Cooley Whiskey, Irish Mist or Baileys, Brown Sugar and Fresh Cream" - come on, this is crazy!
The rooms are great too, big and decorated with taste. The whole place is clean and the owners plus staff are great too.
Tips for the visitors:
1) make sure you visit the Blasket Island while youre in Dingle. Its a short ride by boat from a little harbour hidden on R559. Alternatively you can go there from the Dingle harbour, which is also nice because you get to see a lot during the trip. Blasket island is a small island where only one woman lives with loads of rabbits, sheep and donkeys. Amazing place.
2) take a ride around the peninsula (road R559), we did that and we have been stopping every couple of hundred meters because the landscapes were so beautiful

All in all we spent there a great weekend!

Good views of Dingle Bay. Nice quiet sitting room to view the bay. Rooms are new and clean. Great hosts in Helen and Brian. We brought 13 persons with us a few years ago. And keep coming back ourselves as a couple. Don't miss breakfast, wonderful kitchen. Whatever you do, don't miss Slea Head drive and stop to enjoy the Blaskets views.

Wow- had a great stay at Castlewood and have fallen for the unique town of Dingle. The breakfasts are fab- anywhere that serves bread and butter pudding for breakfast can't be bad, can it?
Rooms have been decorated to a high standard and ours was spotless. Bathroom was enormous.
If you go to Dingle, stay here.
Ps eat at Chart House or Ashes.

I've traveled all over the world and this is the finest accomodation I've ever stayed in. This 12 room BB feels more like a small intimate hotel than a BB. The rooms are immaculate, large, and comfortable. They have thought of everything...

Brian's breakfast omelets are to die for! Cooked to order, these beauties are perfectly delicious. The different array of breakfast options is impressive and the staff takes exceptional care of everyone. Want Baileys for your coffee? They have it. Need Tabasco sauce to spice up your eggs? They have it. All of it served on white linens and sterling silver.

An easy walk into town, large car park, WiFi, and coffee to go in the morning, Castlewood House is simply the best - anywhere.

We stayed at Castlewood for two nights at the end of February. Everything was perfect. Helen, Brian and each of their staff are gracious hosts. Breakfast was gorgeous and delicious each morning - from the handmade bread pudding and soda bread to hot perfect omelets, pancakes and eggs benedict. The room was spotless with beautiful views, the bath luxurious and the amenities thoughtful. I would not hesitate to recommend Castlewood to anyone. I look forward to getting back their soon!
