History

The real name behind Fitzpatrick Castle Hotel is Killiney Castle.

Erected as a measure of poor relief by the owner, the Killiney Castle was built in 1741, although records show that a building or buildings stood here at a much earlier date. However Killiney castle as we know it today, has undergone many changes during the last two and a half centuries. By 1755 it was acquired by a captain Maunsell years previously, lead had been mined on the estate, but the enterprise had not proved commercially successful. Captain Maunsell was succeeded by a colonel Loftus in 1770. The colonel’s stay was a short one in 1772 he advertised the castle and its 150 acres for sale despite his short tenure. Colonel Loftus and his nephew converted the barren stoney soil to meadow and pasture and cut a road around the hill, his successor was lord Clonmel who in 1790 improved the estate further spending £ 3,000 in the process, a handsome sum of money in the early19th century.
The name Robert Warren is very much associated with the castle and while he was in residence he renovated and carried out repairs to the original structure, which Mapas had erected, during his life. Warren also donated land and most of the money for the building of Killiney parish church.

The plaque recording this gesture can be seen in the church itself. It is said that when Robert Warren was in residence at the castle he owned another estate that of Ballydonera in west Wicklow he ran up a flag to indicate his presence to the local residence.

Its subsequent owners included a Mrs Chippendale Higgan. The trees and shrubs she planted can still be seen today and provide a decorative setting for the castle.
Killiney Castle exchanged hands again with the late Paddy and Eithne Fitzpatrick taking over the helm in the 1970’s and re-naming it Fitzpatrick Castle Hotel and transforming it into a first class hotel. Today their daughter Eithne Fitzpatrick Scott-Lennon owns the hotel and guides the way to its continued success for what is proving to be a major contribution to the Dublin hotel scene whilst maintaining the original Castle charm.
