The Rooms at Firecastle

A reason in itself to visit Kildare Town, Firecastle is not your typical accommodation venue! For starters check-in for guests of The Rooms @ Firecastle takes place inside a food store that can only be described as a “food lovers paradise”. The minute you walk through the door, the aroma of freshly baked bread and freshly brewed coffee awakens the senses. Around every corner of this store are the very best of Irish Artisan foods, beautiful fresh and dried flowers, stunning ceramics by Irish designers & the most glorious, scented candles and diffusers. 

At the epicentre of the Firecastle brand is our own Firecastle Fresh & Firecastle product range. Firecastle fresh is a range of restaurant quality ready meals & the ethos behind the brand is to use only the freshest & finest quality ingredients. Best of all, all our products are produced on site. Large glass windows allow visitors the opportunity to see our chef’s and bakers at work in the kitchens daily.

Firecastle opened in September 2020 as an artisan grocer, bakery, café, delicatessen & gift shop. The Rooms @ Firecastle offer visitors the opportunity to stay in one of our beautifully decorated guest rooms many of which overlook the famous St Brigid’s Cathedral. Firecastle gets its name from the lane that runs between the property and the Cathedral “Firecastle Lane” which refers to the fire St Brigid kept perpetually alight. 

Our 10 boutique guest rooms are decorated in either a blush pink or a deep teal. High ceilings and picture windows flood the building with natural light. The rooms first floor location offers a stunning elevated view of St Brigid’s Cathedral. Each guest room has ensuite toilet and shower facilities, tea/coffee and Wi-Fi as standard.
