Don't have bad thing to say about this place. Food first class, tea room cosy and warm. Staff helpful and the history of this place was interesting. We will definitely be back one day!! I was told by a taxi driver that it used to be Eric Claptons house.

I booked this for my wife's birthday and because we were doing an adventure race nearby the next day. I thought it would be a nice treat and therefore booked a suite in the hotel which don't come cheap. The first disappointment was the reception staff. I was obviously not their normal class of clientele as I was not so... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here last Saturday night. The reception staff were really lovely and welcoming. Our room was huge, very clean and comfortable. We ate at the restaurant for dinner. The food was fabulous, very tasty. Service was a little slow and the waitress apologised to us for this. We also had tea in the bar while listening... More

We have never stayed in a place like this, we found it in the Ireland Blue Book. We were looking for a place to stay for a night before our flight out of Dublin this next night. WOW, we loved it. The grounds were beautiful, the rooms were amazing, and the staff was excellent. Highly recommend.

We did a family vacation in Ireland, each night at a different B&B or Hotel. I have chose this hotel, since it was not far from Dublin and part or our route and we wanted to experience a night in a castle also. It is indeed a great place. The 2 rooms were big and comfortable and we loved it.... More

We got married here on 1st August 2014... Every single visit to Barberstown & encounter with their staff from simply considering it as a venue and then enjoying our post wedding breakfast was fantastic. We could not recommend this hotel highly enough... The venue itself, the quality of the rooms, beds, food and level of service from their staff was... More

Was at a wedding here recently and totally fell in love with this place. Upon arrival the staff were so friendly and helpful remembering which room was ours for our whole stay. The rooms were very spacious and comfortable - such a powerful shower and comfortable beds. The views and grounds around the castle were breathtaking. The food in the... More

This was the last stop in The Republic of Ireland for our family of 11 including 5 brothers, their wives and the boys' mother, who was turning 90. We were finishing the trip of a lifetime and our final overnight stay was to be at Baberstown Castle. We had had a lovely trip arranged impeccably by Moloney and Kelly Travel,... More
