Welcome To Carton House

As you step through the doors of our magnificent hotel where the old and new blend seamlessly together, you are taking a step back in time to experience the lives of the Irish aristocracy who once resided here. The original period details of the manor house merge harmoniously with the contemporary luxury touches one would expect to find from a luxury resort, perfectly paired with a warm Irish welcome to create an unforgettable guest experience. 

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

This timeless Palladian mansion is set on 1,100 acres of sweeping Kildare parkland waiting for you to explore its history and heritage, its nature and wildlife, its flora and fauna. At Carton there is space. Whether you have come to indulge in spectacular cuisine, relax in the spa or celebrate one of life's special moments, you will leave with memories to last a lifetime or until your next visit. 

As the festive season fast approaches, learn more about Christmas at Carton and the wonderful stay that awaits our guests for the most magical time of the year.
