Our stay at Castle Country House was absolutely wonderful! My husband and I with two other couples traveled Ireland for 10 days, with a scheduled stop at Castle Country House for one night mid-August. The Nugents are warm and welcoming, making us all feel very comfortable and at home. The rooms are beautiful, up to date, and comfortable...and the food...

On an all B&B vacation, to be the best in both room and breakfast is a signficant achievement. The room was very comfortable and the bath very up to date. But my best memory is the porridge with the home grown rhubarb and berries!!! The full Irish breakfast was great too. The walk to the stream is a must (especially...

We spent three very enjoyable nights here in mid-May 2012. We had a big, comfortable bedroom and, after a good night's sleep, delicious breakfasts with lots of fruit, fresh eggs cooked to perfection, good coffee and exceptional home-made brown wheaten and fruit soda bread. And a very warm welcome from our host, Joan Nugent, and her daughter. We will go...

My aunt, husband & I spent 3 nights with the Nugents, and thoroughly enjoyed their hospitality, accommodations & food. All were wonderful. I made the mistake of getting directions off Google, which directed us onto the R672. We were completely lost, but were giving it one more shot, still having to stop to ask at a farmhouse if we were...

Joan and her family could not have been more welcoming, helpful and friendly. There is a great family feel to the place. This is a quirky B&B. The house is a little old-fashioned, with lots of antiques, books, paintings and knicknacks. Our room had lovely views over the garden, but was small and so was the ensuite shower room. If...

The Nugent family makes you one of them...from the moment they greet you at the door until you leave. This wonderful country house has all the amenities one could ask for and more. An added feature for us was to have one of the Nugent grandchildren as our guide to explore the garden and river area; don't miss walking the...

My wife and I stayed her with our respective parents on our way to West Cork. We all loved this place - it really is as good as all the other reviews say. Big comfortable beds and a truly historic breakfast. You must try Joan's porridge and mixed fruits. PS A dog friendly establishment

We are a family of 6 (4 children) and we loved Castle Country House. They received us with such warmth and really made us feel at home. The breakfast was UNBELIEVABLE!!! So fresh and good quality. We were in Ireland for 6 days and only slept in BB but this one was by far the best! We do recommend it...

Joan was a "perfect" hostess; the rooms, beds and breakfast were outstanding. Please note that it is out in the countryside, and the shower stalls are a wee bit small.

“We stayed in the superior double room, which is the oldest part of the building (with the original 3 foot thick castle walls). It is on the front of the house and is also the most private room and furthest up the stairs. That said, I am sure the rooms are all lovely.”
