Known as the hidden gem in the village of Straffan, County Kildare, Barberstown Castle is a four star country house hotel and historic 13th century castle, only 30 minutes from Dublin City or Dublin Airport and centrally located between four major motorway links in the heart of Ireland's Ancient East.
They are a proud member of Ireland’s Blue Book and The Historic Hotels of Europe. The property is one of the first great Irish country houses to display its splendour to the outside world when it opened as a small guesthouse in 1971. It has maintained the elegance of design over eight centuries by sympathetically blending its Victorian and Elizabethan extensions with the original Medieval Castle Keep of 1288.
It was a former home of the acclaimed musician Mr. Eric Clapton from 1979 - 1987 where famous Rockstar's came to stay and played music into the early hours in the Green Room and Castle Keep.
The Castle is now privately owned and managed and has been carefully upgraded to a 55 Bedroom Failte Ireland Approved Hotel. It offers exclusive hire of the full venue, have gala dinner capacity for 250 guests in the 16th century Banquet Hall. They host authentic medieval banquets in the 13th century Medieval Castle Keep for up to 60 guests offering bespoke entertainment options. And they have converted an old out building into a small traditional Irish pub using memorabilia found on the grounds.
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.
