We went to Barberstown Castle for lunch to celebrate my mother in law's birthday. The setting is lovely and the room where we were shown for lunch was bright and spacious. However the furniture is very mis matched and tattered. We were shown a lunch menu which was printed out on an A4 piece of paper. The selection for lunch...

Stayed here recently for family wedding. Setting is lovely however hotel seems to be under renovation and the bar was closed, no where to get a snack before the wedding. We then had to leave the hotel and walk outside to the wedding venue which is old style and lovely. Except one thing, it was freezing in the venue. My...

We went a friend's wedding and stayed 2 nights. Great hotel, nice rooms, good breakfast and service was excellent. Really friendly staff. No swimming pool or gym so that is the only thing that would let it down. Overall a fantastic stay!

We stayed at the castle as part of a Winter wedding. The hotel is very nice. Rebuild of the old buildings and expanded nicely. The hotel staff were friendly and the best bit after a good wedding is the breakfast and the hotel offers a great full Irish breakfast. Very nicely prepared and good service.

Enjoyed a wonderful overnight B&B with dinner at Barberstown Castle. The room, with a four poster bed, was beautiful. I have not slept so well in a long time! The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The dinner was excellent. The Christmas decorations and log fires (in the reception area and in the restaurant) were warmly welcoming...

Stayed on recommendation of local customer. Impressive building with really old parts. Unfortunately castle is closed for renovations. Staff really professional and nice. Ate in restaurant. Food lovely but unfortunately we were only wines in restaurant so lacked atmosphere. Room with 4 poster bed which was very comfy. Breakfast very nice choice.

I recently visited Barberstown Castle with a friend for lunch. We sat in the foyer area, which is beautiful, but ordered coffee and biscuits as we were told the restaurant is closed for refurbishment. We received two large cups of coffee and homemade shortbread biscuits, all costing €8. A week later I brought my partner back for a coffee, we...

Stayed for one night last week and was pleasantly surprised.The bedroom was large though slightly old fashioned but comfortable. The bathroom was a good size with a good shower. We were checked in by charming staff who sent us complementary tea and biscuits which was a lovely touch and much appreciated. The breakfast was delicious with plenty of choice and...

I was lucky enough to attend a wedding here over the weekend, and it was amazing. The venue is stunning, the accommodations plush, the food exquisite and the staff are fantastic. In particular, the wedding coordinator Anna, for whom only a commitment of 200% will do. Couldn't recommend this place highly enough.
