The most magical place in Ireland (and possibly the world)✨

Barretstown Castle, Ballymore Eustace, Co.Kildare

From the minute you arrive at the gates, you know you are going to have the most unforgettable time. Barretstown is a free therapeutic and recreational camp for children and their families who are affected by serious life-threatening illnesses. Campers can be from Ireland but there are also campers that come from all over the world. There are sibling camps, family camps, teen camps, bereavement family camps and summer camps.

Barretstown presses play on childhood. Barretstown aims to build the confidence and self-esteem of children affected by serious illnesses. The Barretstown volunteers (Caras) are always smiling and bring so much positive energy. Cara is the Irish word for friend. Music, art, horse-riding, archery, baking, kayaking, face-painting, jewellery-making, there are so many activities to get involved in! Campers stay in lovely cosy cottages and all meals and medical assistance are provided, it is a great place to volunteer.

Barretstown is a member of the SeriousFun Children’s Network, a global community run by Paul Newman. Barretstown was established in 1994 and remains a leading provider of therapeutic recreation in Europe for children with cancer and other serious illnesses.
