Stayed for just one night, in room with sea view. Great location, clean room with very comfortable bed and good quality bedding and towels. Really tasty breakfast. Staff friendly and helpful. Great food at local pub which was very short walk away. Owners have been sympathetically restoring this hotel, probably still a little way to go ( for example could...

LOVED this place! Most other castle hotels are so updated and modernized that it takes away from the character of the castle. This castle has been updated but still keeps the old castle charm. It really takes you back in time. Just really great ambiance! The host is super sweet and helpful also. Beds are comfortable. Breakfast is great! Beautiful...

We stayed just one night at The Castle. Its in a beautiful setting, and the Castle itself is brilliant! The interiors are just what you would imagine, and the scenery and bay is stunning. Sitting outside with a cup of tea or a drink in the tranquil silence was wonderful. The staff are lovely and very helpful. Castletownshend is very...

My wife and I stayed here in October and it was wonderful. The castle is set down at the harbour of the village so our view out of our window was great. The room was really comfortable and warm with the original castle wood panelling quite unique. The room was spacious and the shower in the bathroom was fantastic. Our...

We stayed in a cottage just a 5 minute walk from here. When we discovered this castle on our doorstep we were in awe! The grounds were breathtaking, there was a woods and a beautiful lake with a couple of harbors with one allowing swimming! I would definitely recommend paying a visit if you are close by!

To each their own, but The Castle is exactly the kind of place we're always looking for, but rarely find these days. Yes, it's a real, historic, castle, but it's not totally made over to feel like a 21st century hotel... nor does it charge as such. What a comfortable, quaint, special place! We stayed there a couple of days...

I stayed in the property on 11/25/2016. My friend that I was traveling with booked the place after reading reviews in the past year that were positive (after a change in management). This was a contrast to the reviews that were negative prior to the change in ownership. The property is now managed by the previous owner's son and daughter...
