Following an extensive restoration and luxury redesign we were delighted to re-open our beautiful hotel earlier this year as Ireland's first and only Fairmont Hotel. With more than 75 locations around the globe, Fairmont is known for its grand and awe-inspiring properties, many of which are steeped in history and are a focal point of their local regions. We are sure you will agree that Carton House fits this description perfectly, and our hotel will be the most historic property in the prestigious Fairmont collection.
From the moment you arrive at Carton House, you will discover a guest experience that has been completely reimagined. There are a number of exciting new dining experiences to enjoy including The Morrison Room which has been transformed into a fine dining restaurant and Kathleen’s Kitchen serving a true taste of Ireland with the finest locally sourced, seasonal ingredients. A new bar, The Courtyard Bar will also serve a daily coffee and pastries menu by day with premium spirits, fine wines and cocktails providing guests with an indoor and outdoor destination to relax and unwind.
Throughout your stay with us there will also be new faces to meet, activities to enjoy and the original rooms of The House will now be at the very heart of each and every day. From your morning coffee in the Mallaghan Room to a tipple at dusk in the Whiskey Library, The House offering will now allow guests to enjoy the refined flexibility and relaxed atmosphere of a traditional country manor. The Carton House Spa & Wellness journey is also being transformed, complete with innovative new treatment menus and a thermal relaxation experience.
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic and to ensure the safety of our staff and guests as hotels reopen, we are also elevating our hygiene and sanitary norms even further, guaranteeing the implementation of the most stringent cleaning standards and operational protocols in the world of hospitality.
Carton House, a Fairmont Managed Hotel is luxury hotel escapism at its best. Set on 1,100 private acres of sweeping Kildare parkland, just twenty minutes from Dublin International Airport, it is one of Ireland’s most exquisite national treasures. When you arrive at Carton House, you enter a place rich with over three centuries of history. Originally the home of the influential and aristocratic FitzGerald family, its history is as dramatic and storied as that of our nation itself; rich in art, culture, romance and politics, echoes of which can be felt as you walk the halls today.
