Welcome to Carton House, A Fairmont Managed Hotel

Luxury resort in Ireland, re-opening summer 2021

Summer 2021. An exciting date for your diary and one that will always be remembered in the vibrant history of Carton House as we reopen to guests and visitors following an extensive restoration and luxury redesign. 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 this summer, you will discover a guest experience which has been completely reimagined. There will be 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 light menu 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 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. 

The next chapter of our history will soon be written. We look forward to welcoming you to the incredible, new look, Carton House this summer.  

Carton House, a Fairmont managed hotel is luxury resort escapism at its best. Set on 1,100 private acres of sweeping Kildare parkland, just twenty five 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.

A wealth of resort activities await; golf, cycling and walking trails, tennis, archery, falconry and fishing. Carton House was the stage for many defining moments in political and social history. Battles of many kinds were fought here; our modern sports grounds are primed for fresh victories. We celebrate the courage of those who have gone before, and the modern heroes of the Irish Open and beyond. Our two championship golf courses are at the heart of the resort. Choose from the parkland style O' Meara or the inland-links style Montgomerie, 3 time host course to the Irish Open. 

Carton House features 169 bedrooms in total, 18 of which are located in The House. Indulge at one of our award winning restaurants or escape to Carton House Spa & Wellness for complete relaxation.  

Pause in time at Carton House and enjoy a unique and awe-inspiring experience.
