This hotel would have gotten a great review except the main gate was not in operation so I had to enter the premises from the delivery gate, the kitchen was closed for dinner so I had to go off the premises for food, the tower was under construction. I honestly believe I was the only person in the hotel that...

Went here for a meal recently. The decor in the lobby certainly needs some attention. We had a meal in the restaurant. The service was excellent and the food was very tasty. I can't fault the service or food and if you are looking for fine dining at a fair price I would recommend here.

We stayed here on Saturday to attend a wedding. We were able to check in early which was great before the wedding. On check in the staff were all very friendly and helpful. Our room was really beautiful with a huge four poster bed and really large and nicely decorated bathroom. The hotel is nicely spread out and the wedding...

Stayed here for a wedding recently, rooms were quite nice, four poster bed, nice cooked breakfast. After that the rest is pretty underwhelming, dinner was poor, hotel and reception felt disjointed, hotel in general felt cold both literally and in terms of the atmosphere throughout. Overpriced for the product!

We went to Barberstown Castle for lunch to celebrate my mother in law's birthday. The setting is lovely and the room where we were shown for lunch was bright and spacious. However the furniture is very mis matched and tattered. We were shown a lunch menu which was printed out on an A4 piece of paper. The selection for lunch...

Stayed here recently for family wedding. Setting is lovely however hotel seems to be under renovation and the bar was closed, no where to get a snack before the wedding. We then had to leave the hotel and walk outside to the wedding venue which is old style and lovely. Except one thing, it was freezing in the venue. My...

We went a friend's wedding and stayed 2 nights. Great hotel, nice rooms, good breakfast and service was excellent. Really friendly staff. No swimming pool or gym so that is the only thing that would let it down. Overall a fantastic stay!

We stayed at the castle as part of a Winter wedding. The hotel is very nice. Rebuild of the old buildings and expanded nicely. The hotel staff were friendly and the best bit after a good wedding is the breakfast and the hotel offers a great full Irish breakfast. Very nicely prepared and good service.

Enjoyed a wonderful overnight B&B with dinner at Barberstown Castle. The room, with a four poster bed, was beautiful. I have not slept so well in a long time! The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The dinner was excellent. The Christmas decorations and log fires (in the reception area and in the restaurant) were warmly welcoming...
