The welcome was first class as was the standard of attention by the staff. However the prices of the food in the restaurant were overpriced. For, on average ,a 30 Euro main course you still had to add another 10 Euro for Potatoes and vegetables . Further the menu was a restricted one in terms of variety. The deserts averaged... More

I'm just back from a lovely stay in Barberstown castle. It's the perfect place to unwind. From start to finish we were very well taken care of, a special thank you to Eszter in the Restaurant for looking after us. The carmelised pineapple dessert is amazing. Breakfast is delicious, good quality ingredients and a beautiful fresh fruit buffet. The staff... More

I stayed as part of a small group having a conference at the venue staying in February. The hotel has great character, and is kept in very good order. The hotel has many good features, roaring log fires, individuality, a great restaurant in the old castle. Breakfast was good but the evening meals were great.

Stayed here for one night - hoping for a "castle experience" .... well there is a castle or part of one but this didn't rate with some of the castle stays I have experienced in Scotland for example. This may be typical of Irish castle stays I am not sure. Having said that, we had a very pleasant experience ....... More

Stayed here when attending a wedding at New Year and we were very impressed with the level of service and detail on offer here. Check in was friendly and efficient. The room was beautifully decorated, with a four poster bed and a massive bathroom. It was also immaculately clean. As we were attending a wedding we didn't get to try... More

Attended a wedding at the castle. Lovely food all served hot, which sometimes can be an issue at weddings. Nice spacious function room, heated with various fires. Very nice and spacious bed rooms. On the negative side there was no TV in function bar, no large bottles of cider, no cigarettes/cigars for sale on site either. Overall I enjoyed my... More

We won a night in barberstown a few months ago and I'm so glad we did as it's probably somewhere we never would have visited as it's so close to Dublin. But it's the perfect place to get away from the city for a night. We loved it from the moment we arrived, the reception staff are so nice and... More
