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. It is family owned and managed. The Cashman’s aim is to share their passion for the destination through providing authentic, enriching experiences and thoughtful, intuitive service.

Located in Castledermot, along Ireland’s Ancient East 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.

Kilkea Castle has a long history of delivering fairytale Weddings. However, the Castle is also the perfect choice for a family gathering or corporate retreat. Imagine yourself as King or Queen while enjoying your very own Irish Castle!
