  • A dream wedding venue

    by Babethski on 2018-10-03 01:47 am

    We chose Barberstown Castle for our wedding on 7th September and to say we couldn't have been happier with our day is an understatement. There are three main reasons for this, venue, food and service.
    Venue - The venue itself is beautiful for a wedding, with the castle as a backdrop and lovely grounds for the photos. The bedrooms have a romantic feel with the four poster beds and old world style and they are also plenty spacious for all the hair and makeup that has to be done on the morning of the wedding!. The wedding reception room has great character and is so different in style from other hotels. The open log fires add that extra something to the atmosphere also.
    Food - This was very important to us. We already knew that Barberstown present very high quality food but were worried that guests would not get enough . This was an unnecessary worry as on the day, the food was of excellent quality and taste and we were all offered seconds so both quality and quantity boxes were ticked.
    Finally - Service. This is where Barberstown outshines other hotels. From the very first meeting with Anna to all the subsequent meetings and correspondence with Sara and Gretchen, the team could not have been anymore helpful and friendly. On the day, Matthew was our event manager and he took control of everything and looking back, I don't know if the day would have gone as smoothly as it did without him. He looked after the photographer, the musicians, the guests and most importantly, us.

  • let down by poor service and disappointing brerakfast

    This is a really beautiful hotel set in lovely grounds and with a lovely ambiance. Our junior suite was very nice with four poster bed etc/. However it was spoiled by two things. During the week food is served in a lovely Moroccan style bar. We were 25 minutes waiting for our order to be taken and 20 minutes for the food to arrive. The two young girls serving were obviously untrained and they were running around aimlessly until after 25 minutes we asked the bar man to ask them to take our order. The food when it arrived was very good.The breakfast was a complete disappointment. The buufet area had cereal ( very limited choice ) in uncovered bowls and the pastries etc were just thrown on plates no effort at all with presentation. My poached eggs were served on soggy toast with no garnish and my husbands full Irish was quite definitely pre cooked then microwaved except for the fried egg. It was rubbery and unpleasant and he hardly touched it.A shame as freshly cooked breakfast is stated on their website. The reception staff were friendly and charming. While we certainly enjoyed our stay it was let down badly by the food experience.

  • Beyond our expectations!

    We had a fabulous stay at This hotel. The staff were friendly and courteous, the accommodations were wonderful, as was the food. Really enjoyed a casual dinner of tapas while seated by the fire! Highly recommended!

    Stayed here a couple of nights before departing for home. The rooms are large with a sofa and comfortable beds. Breakfast buffet was very good and staff was helpful. Had a large dinner there the night before returning home that was also very good.

  • Wedding

    by leighgerry2018 on 2018-09-13 08:41 am

    I was at a close friends wedding on 8th September, asked by the very rude and obnoxious owner Ken Healy to remove my camper from the grounds or he would charge the wedding party 200 euro. I had tried to book a room but was full ! He then went around his staff telling them not to serve me and continued to be vocal and irate in front of guests. Very embarrassing for me and my wife
