Barberstown Castle

Barberstown Castle is one of the earliest Irish country houses to open its doors to the outside world when it launched as a hotel in 1971. Boasting an incredibly long and tumultuous history, the hotel includes four buildings from different time periods with the original castle structure dating as far back as the 13th century. Today, the character and style of the earliest building has been tastefully preserved in the hotel and is the highlight of any visit. Nestled on 20 acres in Kildare, Barberstown Castle Hotel is only 25 minutes removed from Dublin city centre, making it easy to explore both the bustle of the capital or the beautiful surrounding countryside. Barberstown Castle is sure to impress with its historic accommodations and exceptional customer service.
