About Us

The hidden Gem in Kildare, only 30 minutes from Dublin City & Airport, central to four major motorway links and minutes from the quaint Straffan Village.     

Barberstown Castle is a Four-Star Country House Hotel & Historic 13th Century Castle, proud member of Ireland’s Blue Book and Historic Hotels of Europe.

We are one of the first great Irish country houses to display its splendor to the outside world when it opened as a hotel in 1971. It has maintained the elegance of design over eight Centuries by sympathetically blending its Victorian and Elizabethan extensions with the original Medieval Castle Keep of 1288.

Once owned by Eric Clapton in the 80’s, it is now privately owned & managed with a lot of exciting options awaiting you.

We thrive on Special Occasions and a bespoke personal service teamed with crackling log fires, spacious bedrooms, a creative food offering and fine wines.

Have a look at everything we offer at Barberstown Castle, from Leisure Breaks, Weddings in our stunning 16th Century Banquet Hall, Conference events, Gala Dinners or private dining in our Medieval Castle Keep.

We have also converted some outbuildings into a little Irish pub perfect for parties and Day Two Weddings gatherings.

But see it for yourself…. arrange a site visit or pop in for a coffee in our Garden Bar and let your imagination run wild….
