Ireland’s horse heritage has developed from folklore, legends & High Kings to a place where the story of the horse is embedded within our DNA. Since the establishment of the stud in 1916, our evolution has coincided with the progression of Ireland’s world-class Thoroughbred industry.

Located in the heart of the Thoroughbred county, Co. Kildare, we welcome you to enter this land of horses, trees, and gardens & celebrate the wonders of nature. Enjoy a saving of 10% if you are a resident at Barberstown Castle, must be pre booked at least three days before arrival.
