Barberstown Castle

Barberstown Castle has been occupied continuously for over 400 years and, despite its many additions - including a new accommodation wing - it has retained a sense of history. There are Church of Ireland and Catholic churches close by in Straffan village, and blessings are possible at Barberstown too.

Weddings are a speciality here and this is one of Ireland’s most desirable venues: the reception is held in the 16th century coach house; now known as the Medieval Banqueting Hall, it has been renovated with character, and there is a private medieval-style drinks reception area attached to the function room, where a piper can provide a very memorable welcome.

Although this wedding venues got no wedding planning service, referrals are provided for every kind of specialist service you could possibly require and everything connected with the reception itself - table settings, food, service - is done with professionalism and great style.

Accommodation, in individually decorated rooms and suites, includes some with four-posters - and some particularly romantic rooms are in the oldest section, the Castle Keep.
