The host is great, and very communicative. She was extremely helpful in giving us information in advance of our stay. She was at the castle at the arranged time for checking in. The place is great, and a unique experience.

Our stay at Dairsie Castle was amazing. It's very exciting to have stayed in a very well reconstructed castle. Our family links to the Castle historically made the trip even more memorable. Thanks Etsuko. We'll be back.
