13th Century Splendour

barberstown castle

Barberstown Castle, Co. Kildare.

Barberstown Castle, built in the 13th Century, boasts close proximity to Dublin City Centre and Dublin Airport (both 30 minutes away). Nestled on 20 acres of surrounding gardens, Barberstown was one of the first great Historic Irish Country Houses to display its splendour to the outside world when it opened as a hotel in 1971.


It has maintained a unique elegance of design over eight centuries by sympathetically blending its Victorian and Elizabethan wings with the original Castle Battlement of 1288.

About Tubbrid Castle

Nestled in Kilkenny’s Sliabhardagh Hills, Tubbrid Castle blends modern touches with the authentic experience of staying at a 15th-century tower house.

After waking in a four-poster bed under a vaulted stone ceiling, guests can look forward to relaxing in a deep, bubbly bath and sipping their morning coffee ensconced in an original window seat, while watching out for foxes and deer from the nearby woodland.

In the evening, use the Great Hall’s fully equipped kitchen and oak banquet table to feast like a king, before retiring to enjoy the log-fired stove, where the original fireplace is inscribed ‘1596’.
