Welcome to Barberstown Castle
Barberstown Castle, built in the 13th Century, is the only 4 Star Irish Castle Hotel in Ireland “with 5 Star Quality” which boasts close proximity to Dublin City Centre and Dublin Airport (both 30 minutes away). Nestled on 20 acres of surrounding gardens, Barberstown was one of the first great Historic Irish Country Houses to display its splendour to the outside world when it opened as a hotel in 1971.
It has maintained a unique elegance of design over eight centuries by sympathetically blending its Victorian and Elizabethan wings with the original Castle Battlement of 1288.
To be highly recommended by Fodor's Choice Distinction 2010, The Good Hotel Guide and Michelin Guide are great accolades as all of these guides are totally independent and a hotel in question cannot pay to be included. Barberstown Castle was also awarded "Best Hotel Restaurant in Kildare 2011" by Irish Restaurant Awards.
Visitors to Barberstown will experience a very relaxing and welcoming Castle while enjoying great food, good wines, open log fires, luxury and exceptional personal service. This intimate Irish Castle is ideal for your next Romantic Weekend break, Wedding Reception (Awarded Wedding Venue of the Year Castle 2013 by weddingsonline.ie), Civil Ceremony, exclusive Conference on Dublin’s doorstep or the perfect base for your Historic Irish Vacation. There are an abundance of activities to be enjoyed during your stay.

Privately owned and not part of any chain, Barberstown provides a personal and memorable experience unusual in these times. We look forward to welcoming you to our Irish Castle and Country House Hotel in Kildare near Dublin!
