Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Castlewood is ideally situated,on the edge of Dingle town. Parking is directly outside the door! We were greeted ,as usual by Helen and Brian and availed of our welcome glass of Bucks Fizz! Our room was the nicest one we have stayed in on our many visits to Castlewood! The main window looks out on the sea but the side view takes in Dingle Bay! Stunning! Our beautiful bedroom and big bathroom was so comfortable! After a great night's s sleep we enjoyed superb breakfasts . Their menu continues to be creative,and I love everything on it!😀 The staff are all so helpful and knowledgeable. From giving information on the locality to making last minute dinner reservations. Helen and Brian continue to give a wonderful Irish welcome .

We have stayed at Castlewood twice now and will certainly be back again. Probably the nicest place we’ve ever stayed. Fabulous rooms. The breakfast is truly amazing. Brian and Helen are lovely hosts. Perfect location in Dingle with wonderful views. Couldn’t ask for more.

Wow! What a Fantastic BNB! This is literally the best BNB we have ever stayed in anywhere in the world. The fact that it is on the Dingle peninsula makes it all the more enjoyable. It's a short 10 minute walking distance to Dingle for dinner and pubs. The rooms are amazing, the bed like sleeping on a cloud, the bathroom was huge and the owners were so helpful, knowledgeable and interesting. PLUS the breakfast was out of this world!!! The only problem is that everyone else wants to stay here that comes to Dingle. So book early!!!

Our hosts were wonderful! They helped us with transportation needs, restaurant recommendations and served the most delicious breakfast. The setting of the hotel is wonderful to sit and look across the bay. The accommodations were clean, spacious and luxurious.

Everything about Castlewood is superb. From the welcome to the linen. Rooms are lovely and spacious with all the frills you would like. Breakfast - well , it’s exceptional. Try the black pudding or any of the three pages of options from very light to fuel for the day. The location is also excellent as it’s only a short stroll into town. The only disappointment we had was we could not stay longer - booked out. Disappointment is not an option here.

My husband and I recently stayed two nights at Castlewood B&B. It was welcoming as usual. Lovely room very comfortable. Super breakfast. We couldn’t unfortunately visit Dingle town or tour around as my husband injured his ankle but we sat in the garden. Every effort was made to make sure we were ok. Umbrella for shade, coffee, water. Both Helen, Brian and their staff especially their lovely nurse were so helpful. It’s our third time at Castlewood House and it is always a delight. Thanks again for your care and attention.

Our stay in Dingle was wonderful and the hospitality at the Castlewood House was the cornerstone of our time there. The hotel was beautiful and the rooms were spotless and spacious. The location was perfect and the food was delicious, too. We have already told a number of friends and family about our trip and experiences in Dingle. The owners, Helen and Brian made our stay truly enjoyable. We would absolutely return to the Castlewood House on our next trip to Ireland.

Helen and Brian run a flawless spot. Everything about our stay aligned to what the website offered, down to the last detail. Room was spotless and wonderfully well-kept. The food was outstanding; a reason alone to go back. Cannot recommend this property highly enough!
