Stayed there for a night with a few friends. Rooms were beautiful with a bit of character. Staff were all very friendly and helpful. Food was delicious and got good value too. The only fault I had was the noise in the morning of breakfast trolleys passing our room as we were beside the stairs but apparently that was only... More

This is a beautiful venue, rooms are spacious and comfortable and food is excellent. However service is slow and staff unwilling to accomodate children, i.e there is no children's menu so you have to order from main menu and there are no baby changing facilities. I did ask if the chef could make a simple chicken fillet and chips or... More

We had in the past regularly ate at the tearooms and we were on the whole satisfied with the service and would have recommended the tearooms previously. We ate here last night and we were appalled by the service and attitude of the management. We had ordered an evening meal in the tearooms and we were in the middle of... More

We stayed here before heading back to the States. Check in was smooth and the front desk staff was extremely helpful. The room was very large and nicely appointed. The restaurant was a bit pricey, but the food was good, and service was great. The only thing this hotel lacks is a bar area. I was highly impressed with the... More

We stayed here for our friends' wedding. Beautiful venue. The food was gorgeous - dinner, bbq, breakfast. Our room was lovely - 4 poster bed. We wished we could've stayed longer. Looks like a nice place to visit for dinner / afternoon tea as well.

We had our wedding at Barberstown Castle on the 7th June 2014. From initial planning to the last drink this was an amazing experience. The staff couldn't have been more helpful and service on the day was excellent. A great many of our guests told us that the food was the best they ever had at a wedding. We cannot... More

We stayed at Barberstown Castle off and on for many months while I worked on a project nearby. The rooms are very large and impressive and appointed with the very best furnishings. The staff was very attentive to our needs and always asking how they can help. The food was always top notch and fresh. The ambiance of the property... More

Stayed here recently while attending a wedding. The service was excellent, far beyond what I have experienced in other 4 star hotels. The staff were all very helpful, professional and extremely friendly. The food was amazing. The grounds are beautiful. Strolling around them is extremely enjoyable. The room was very clean and ultra comfortable, I would normally not be a... More
