Castlewood House among the world's best

DINGLE's Castlewood House, the waterfront hotel run by Helen and Brian Heaton has amassed another major accolade as it has been named as sixth best in the world on the list of exceptional service hotels by global travel website TripAdvisor.

Castlewood House was the only Irish hotel to make the top 25 exceptional service list which sees Riad Kheirredine, Marrakech, Morocco occupy the top spot.

The listing also sees the Dingle hotel listed as second best for exceptional service and best in Ireland according to TripAdvisor who correlate their awards based reviews submitted by millions of holiday-makers around the world each year.

TripAdvisor also named Castlewood House as the best bargain hotel in the world last January.

TripAdvisor previously named Castlewood House as the Best Hotel in Ireland in January 2012 and the Dingle Hotel received the award for Best Value Hotel at the National Hospitality Awards in October 2012.
