    Hotel itself is lovely and rooms are lovely and clean

    I booked Barberstown Castle as a treat for my partners 40th Birthday, as a young couple we enjoy having a nice meal and relaxing in a bar with some entertainment. On both Booked.net and Barberstown Castles website, they both said that there was live entertainment on the weekends. What they didn't say was that the live entertainment was someone playing a piano in a different room and that it finished at 11.30, which meant we were sitting there on our own in a bar with nothing happening. Website should have also stated the hotel bar was the same size of our bedroom, it was very small, very dark and seats were very uncomfortable, I do appreciate that it is a bar in a castle and it was fitting in with surroundings, we found sitting in the bar very uncomfortable and boring. If we had of known that the 'Live entertainment' was a piano playing in another room finishing at 11.30pm, I definitely would not have booked this hotel. We were completely disillusioned by this statement and found for the price that we paid for one nights stay that this live entertainment was not acceptable. The restaurant was also very expensive, in fact nothing about this hotel was cheap and considering the current climate, this hotel was booked with high expectations for the price we were paying. €250 per room and €170 for meal and wine is a lot of money for one night in a 4 star hotel, considering we got the cheapest wine on the menu and then to sit in a bar with no entertainment is not acceptable. We spoke to Manager on duty Sat night and asked to see General Manager on Sun but nothing happened. Would not recommend to anyone

    The hotel is lovely & quaint. It was exactly the type of room I enjoy, with the 4 poster bed & a lovely view of the grounds. I are in the tea room & the food was delicious!

    Staff were friendly. Location was good. Food was excellent

    Stayed in room 7. Wasn't very impressed with the decor. Room was extremely hot when waking up in the morning! Could have done with umbrellas at reception for guests to use to go to function room!

    Superb

    My stay at the Castle was very comfortable, the staff were very attentive, I enjoyed my stay there. The rooms were very clean and tidy, could not fault the hotel. Keep doing what you are doing Barerstown Castle as it clearly works!! I will be back at some point.

    Could not fault the facilities or the staff.
