The Round House at Castletown provides the opportunity for a delightful getaway from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The house is one of three adjoining Gate Lodge buildings serving Castletown House – the largest and most significant Palladian Country House in Ireland. The Gate Lodges are known separately as The Round House, The Pottery and The Gate House. The Round House is prominently positioned at the top of the main street in Celbridge, located across from the quaint Church of Ireland Christ Church, built in 1884, which retains the majestic tower of an earlier church. Originally constructed in the late 1700s, the Round House has recently been carefully and lovingly restored, and the result is an amazingly unique and historic place to stay. As a vacation rental at which you are the only guests during your stay, Castletown is a fantastic option for families or two or more couples, who wish to spend some quality, uninterrupted time together!

On The Map: Celbridge is located 23 miles west of Dublin City. It is most easily accessed by the R403 & R405 roads, which intersect with the main M4 Motorway connecting Dublin & Galway Cities.
The development of Celbridge commenced with the building of Kildrought House in 1720. The present day houses on Main Street and in the town centre were built over the subsequent two hundred year period. Celbridge boasts several important historical buildings and famous sons. Number 22 Main Street was for a time occupied by Richard Guinness and his son Arthur was born there. Arthur went on to form the Guinness Brewery. Castletown House, was constructed in 1722, and is situated at the end of an avenue extending from the main street of Celbridge. Castletown is Ireland’s largest and arguably finest Palladian Country House. Two features of particular note are the 80-foot blue and gold Long Gallery, and the main cantilevered staircase. Reputedly, only three staircases of this kind were ever constructed, and one lies at the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean, aboard the doomed Titanic. Celbridge Abbey was built in 1703, and is another beautiful structure, with many tales of woe to tell. In recent years Celbridge has expanded dramatically, yet most of the towns services and amenities still centre on the single main street.
