Barberstown Castle

Straffan Ireland

Expect to find yourself in the midst of wedding celebrations and possibly hordes of merry makers attending a medieval banquet held at this 13th-century edifice. Temper your stay in the Dark Ages with an urban jaunt into Dublin, just a 30-minute drive from the castle. Twenty acres of gardens complete the property. The chandeliered rooms show off antique furniture in a structure once owned by Eric Clapton.
