Medieval Banquets

A unique private event

Barberstown Castle are delighted to offer a fully immersive Medieval Irish Banquet Experience - a unique and private event for pre-booked groups (Min 30 guests | Max 60 guests) hosted in our 13th Century Medieval Castle Keep.

Guests are treated to a Medieval Feast served in a private dining space with an open fire and walls adorned with memorabilia. After dinner the performance commences and you will experience the unique history of Ireland and Barberstown Castle expressed through storytelling, traditional song and music with our resident Narrator, Harpist and Bodhran player.

The standard show is performed with three artists but you have the option to add in Meet & Greet characters, additional musicians, dancers or fully costume your guests through our costume department.

We create the experience around you, your requirements and budgets.

So step back in time and let us take you on a journey to hear tales of Conquests, Battles between the native Celtic Uí Faolain tribe and the invading Normans or the High Kings of Ireland throughout 700 years of Irish history...

On departing your guests will have enjoyed excellent food and fine wines or a traditional 'Cead Mile Failte' and will return home with a better understanding of Irish history in an authentic Irish Castle.

For larger gatherings, the Banquets can be hosted in our 16th Century Banquet Hall up to 200 guests. Additional staging and Audio Visual is required for this option.
