Comments from several of Barberstown Castle’s corporate clients

I just wanted to say a huge THANK YOU to you and your team for a fantastic couple of days last week. From the rooms, to the food, the service and everything in between, it was amazing from start to finish! Looking forward to working with you again soon. 

Account Executive, General Paints Group, February 2020


I just wanted to send on my huge thanks to you and all the team there for everything at the weekend.  Everything went perfectly and the feedback from attendees was fantastic.  So many people came to me and commented on how excellent the hotel was, especially the staff.  I can honestly say it was the best meeting yet and is testimony to the professionalism of the staff and friendly, relaxed atmosphere that always greets you in Barberstown.

I will be collating the feedback during the week and will keep you posted of some of the comments for marketing/advertising purposes. 

So thank you again to all at Barberstown.  To Ken, Richard, Sarah, Kristine and of course yourself Denise to name but a few.....I really couldn't have done it without you!

"Barberstown Castle is a fantastic venue for any events or marketing activities. It provides a beautiful backdrop with its interesting historical buildings and scenic grounds. It is also very accessible to get to just off the M4. Denise and the team were very helpful and flexible throughout, allowing us to tailor the venue to our needs.”

I just wanted to drop a line to thank you for arranging a really lovely evening at Barberstown Castle.  From the moment we arrived we felt a warm welcome and it was great to be able to relax in the Garden Bar and enjoy refreshments before dinner.  Thank you also for arranging an earlier time to go through to the dining room.  We were seated by 7.15pm and enjoyed an excellent meal.  Our guests loved the ambience of the Green Room!  For most of us it was our first time to dine at Barberstown Castle but definitely not the last.

"I had 28 French guests visiting Ireland for the first time. Conference Partners very wisely booked them into Barberstown Castle, and it was a perfect choice for them. It is very well postioned for the motorways to the west and south. ALL visitors were very happy with their bedrooms, and the food was absolutely stunning. They had 3 dinners in the hotel, and ,without exception,every meal was brilliant. The staff were professional and courteous. It was such a good experience I had to write this review! I have no other connection with this hotel! "
