It is with the heaviest of hearts that as of 20th March and until further notice, we announce the temporaray closure of Carton House estate. The safety of our guests and team are too important to be risking at this escalating stage of Covid-19. For us, it's the first time we've closed our doors since we opened them in 2006 - but needs must. Thankfully, at present, our hotel renovations continue and we look forward to sharing with you our brand new-look hotel, the same great team and our journey in becoming a Fairmont property over the coming months. Stay well everyone and look after each other.
Carton House 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 165 bedrooms in total, 18 of which are located in the Manor House. Indulge at one of our award winning restaurants or escape to Carton House Spa & Wellness for complete relaxation. We now invite you to join us in writing the next chapter of the Carton House story. In January 2020 we began the next phase of renewal for the estate, a thoughtful restoration and luxury redesign which will put the Manor House at the very heart of a new Carton House experience for guests to enjoy. We look forward to revealing this to you later this year.
Pause in time at Carton House and enjoy a unique and awe-inspiring experience.
