 To Preview a 2 minute video clip of our Medieval Banquets:

On entering Barberstown Castle you will be served a glass of Irish Mead. Your Medieval Feast is served in the Elizabethan Suite (1562 AD), Castle Keep (1172 AD) or our Medieval Banqueting Hall (1562 AD), dependent on numbers (see below) with 2 glasses of wine. After dinner, the history of Ireland and Barberstown Castle will come alive through the Medieval Show.

Step back in time and meet the Ghost of Nicholas Barby who built Barberstown Castle in 1288.  This Ghost will take you through the history of Medieval Ireland and the resulting battle at Barberstown between the native Celtic Ui Faolain tribe and the invading Normans.

The performance commences after your Banquet Dinner. Experience the unique history of Barberstown Castle as expressed through Traditional song, music and storytelling which brings to life over 700 years of Irish history. The show is engaging in this intimate and unique setting featuring some of Ireland's best performers.

When your guests leave Barberstown Castle, they will have enjoyed excellent food, wines and will return home with a better understanding of Irish History and can say they truly have met a Ghost at an Irish Castle…
