Barberstown Castle, Straffan, Co. Kildare - 773

Limited Edition Print

  • €105.00 (Incl. VAT)

An acrylic painting of historic Barberstown Castle in County Kildare. The original castle was built in 1288 but had extensions added in the 16th and 18th centuries. It has been a hotel since 1971 and was once owned by singer Eric Clapton.

The nearby village of Straffan was called after Saint Straffan, a 6th sixth century missionary. The close link between the castle and the village and people was proven when an underground secret tunnel between the Church in Straffan to the Castle was found in 1996 during renovations. A ‘Priest’s Hole’ was also found in the Castle a common construction in big houses at the time, made to protect the priests of the town during Penal Times.

This painting is available as a Limited Edition run of 200 prints using Epson Archival inks on supreme quality Hahnemuhle Traditional Fine Art paper. See dropdown menu above to see size, price and framing options.

A beautiful Wedding gift

Purchased this as a gift for our daughter and son in law. They recently got married here and thought it would be a very special keepsake, and have to say how delighted they are and couldn’t wait to give it pride of place in their home. We live in the UK so decided to ask whether we could collect from Chris while attending the wedding, The print was very well packaged for transportation. Thank you for the exceptional service Chris!

Memories are made of ......

This was our third purchase from Chris.It was a gift to our daughter and husband who hosted their wedding there in 2013. They love the print and of course it reminds them of their happy moments at the Castle. The print was delivered promptly and personally by Chris and we had a lovely (Socially Distanced) chat about all and sundry.
