Enriching Community Life

Celbridge Community Council is a purely voluntary organization that was founded in 1975.  Our vision for Celbridge is one of a vibrant town with a strong sense of community, where local people come together to tackle challenges through local solutions, making Celbridge an even better place to live, work and visit.

Celbridge Community Council’s mission is to improve the quality of life for community members across all stages of life. We do this by supporting community well-being through services that target the groups most in need, by promoting local initiatives and services, and by positively influencing the future development of Celbridge.


Castletown Lands

Our ultimate objective is to see the lands at Castletown returned to state ownership.  We believe that this is the only course of action that will truly solve the problem. We are, however, deeply concerned over the OPW’s current plan to create a temporary access and parking solution.

That is why we are communicating directly with the OPW and local and national politicians to ensure any solution is in the best interests of the people of Celbridge and surrounding areas. However, our main objective is to stop any proposed development and see the state purchase the lands to put an end to this appalling mess. We are actively engaged in pursuing this goal.  See our dedicated Castletown page for the latest resources and updates, including information on:

  • Ownership of Castletown Demesne Lands.
  • Land Usage Zoning under the Local Area Plan and Impact on Planning Applications.
  • Closure of Public Car Park at Castletown – September 2023.
  • Issues & Solutions.
  • Media Coverage / Press Releases.
You will also find links to social media pages and hashtags for up-to-date information on efforts to preserve Castletown and to reunite the demesne lands.
