How you’ll help so many children and families

Children who come to Barretstown have often spent a long time in hospital and have been denied ordinary childhood experiences such as making friends and developing social skills. At Barretstown they are encouraged to step outside their comfort zone in a fun, safe, activity based environment. Find out more about how children and families benefit from Barretstown here 


It costs €4.5 million every year to run our Therapeutic Recreation, and 97% of this money comes from voluntary sources. People like you help keep the Castle door open so that children and families can keep benefiting from the magic.
