WELCOME TO KILKEA CASTLE

Prepare to feel like royalty when you enter the grounds of one of the oldest inhabited Castles in Ireland. With history dating back to 1180, Kilkea Castle captures the mystical charm of a 12th Century majestic Castle with the overwhelming allure of timeless sophistication and style. After a major renovation that redefines luxury, Kilkea Castle is delighted to welcome you.

Only an hour’s drive from Dublin, once the medieval stronghold of the Fitzgerald’s, Earls of Kildare, the Castle was built by Hugh de Lacy for one of Strongbow's Norman Noblemen, Walter de Riddlesford. Today it stands proudly ready to extend a warm Irish welcome to guests from around the globe.

Located in Castledermot and set on 180 acres of its own wonderful woodland, gardens and golf course, Kilkea Castle enchants from the moment you drive down the beech-lined avenue overlooking the Killeshin Hills, only minutes from the ancient Mullaghreelan Woods.

The Resort boasts three different accommodation options to appeal to all ages and budgets:

  • The Castle
  • Carriage Bedrooms
  • Self-Catering Golf Lodges
