It’s been another big week for Dingle as a local family hotel was voted the number one hotel in Ireland by TripAdvisor.com. Castlewood House, situated on the waterfront on the western side of Dingle, has been named the number one hotel in Ireland by TripAdvisor.com. Even more notably, in the website’s listings for the overall top ten hotels in the world, Castlewood House comes in in sixth place. They have also been named second best in Europe. TripAdvisor Travellers' Choice winners are based on millions of valuable reviews and opinions from travellers around the world; the website revealed the list of Ireland's Best Hotels for 2012 last week and the proprietors at Castlewood House, Helen and Brian Heaton, were absolutely delighted. "We are so honoured to be recognised by TripAdvisor as a 2012 Travellers' Choice award-winning hotel. We strive to provide the utmost in service and customer care to our guests and would like to take this opportunity to thank our guests for helping us to receive this award,” said Brian. “This isn’t an assessment by an agency or body, these awards are bestowed according to people’s reviews and experiences and that means a lot to us,” Helen added. According to Brian a high proportion of the guests at Castlewood House hail from North America, the UK, Germany and even Australia, adding that there is approximately a 50-50 split between international and domestic guests.
