Barberstown Castle, built in the 13th Century, is the only 4 Star Irish Castle “with 5 Star Quality” which boasts close proximity to Dublin City Centre and Dublin Airport (both 30 minutes away). Nestled on 20 acres of surrounding gardens, Barberstown was one of the first great Historic Irish Country Houses to display its splendour to the outside world when it opened as a hotel in 1971.
It has maintained a unique elegance of design over eight centuries by sympathetically blending its Victorian and Elizabethan wings with the original Castle Battlement of 1288.
To be highly recommended by Fodor's Choice Distinction 2010, The Good Hotel Guide and Michelin Guide are great accolades as all of these guides are totally independent and a hotel in question cannot pay to be included. Barberstown Castle was also awarded "Best Hotel Restaurant in Kildare 2011" by Irish Restaurant Awards.
Visitors to Barberstown will experience a very relaxing and welcoming Castle while enjoying great food, good wines, open log fires, luxury and exceptional personal service.
