About this listing
The Round House at Castletown is one of three adjoining gatelodge buildings gracing the entrance to one of Ireland's best loved palladian houses. It is a warm, welcoming house; lovely for a family getaway. 40 mins from Dublin.
Situated at the pedestrian entrance to Castletown House, the largest and most significant Palladian country house in Ireland. Prominently positioned at the top of the main street in Celbridge, the Round House is located across from the quaint Church of Ireland Christ Church, built in 1884, which retains the majestic tower of an earlier church. This beautiful house provides the opportunity for a delightful getaway from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Other Things to Note
Our buildings were made to the standards of earlier times – and sometimes without the intention that they should be lived in. Consequently you may encounter features that reflect their particular character but that deserve due care and attention, particularly by the young, elderly, less mobile or visually impaired. Examples of these are steps worn with age, uneven surfaces, low ceilings and beams, unexpected drops or changes in level, and by modern standards low or absent lighting. In all cases we have sought to make a sensible compromise between due regard for safety and the careful retention of the fabric of each building, which makes it an interesting place to stay. We ask you to appreciate and use the building with this understanding, and recommend you read the information in the Guest Book in the property.
We ask that you leave the property in a clean and tidy condition upon departure. All equipment, utensils etc must be left clean and the property must be left clean and tidy at the end of the hire period.
All breakages and damage must be reported to the House Manager immediately so that they can be rectified. All breakages and damage are the legal responsibility of the Hirer and the cost of repair or replacement must be paid.
Our host was very friendly and helpful, even when we were running late. Minor issues like the lack of wifi, but overall very lovely home in a nice neighborhood!
Welcoming and helpful. The listing description was accurate. They were very accommodating and flexible, and the property was pleasant. The neighbourhood was a little noisy, but well positioned for local landmarks, shops and restaurants. Parking was an issue, but but we had been warned about that. Likewise there was no phone or internet, and cell coverage was patchy.
The Castletown Round House was amazing. Really cute just as in the photos, well kept, and super conveniently located. The host was really easy to interact with and easy to get in touch with. Loved it.
The only negative was that the door handles were noisy (though very classic hardware) and sounds do travel in the place as might be expected for an older building. Street noise was not bad and not a problem at all, just my noisy family.

About the Host, Irish Landmark
Irish Landmark is a non-profit organisation that finds interesting and unusual properties that are in need of conservation, and we give them new life. Since 1992, we’ve been turning historic buildings into truly special self-catering holiday accommodation. Our properties range from lighthouses and schoolhouses, to castles and gate lodges.
As an educational charity, our primary aim is to conserve and sustain iconic buildings. That’s why Irish Landmark properties are living buildings, not museum settings. Irish Landmark always respects the history and architectural integrity of the structures we conserve, but we also ensure they have all the contemporary comforts you want in a holiday home.
