AO Foundation

As a global organization that regularly holds large events in different parts of the world, we have a lot of experience with various event venues. Our time at Carton House was an absolute pleasure. We were extremely happy with the overall level of service: all staff were friendly and a joy to work with. Everyone, without exception, from reception staff to service personnel, to operations, and the events team – went above and beyond to ensure we were happy. This commitment to excellence at all levels, combined with the stunning grounds and impressive historic estate, is what makes Carton House such an ideal business event location. Our stay was a truly exceptional experience.

“The pitches at Carton House are high quality and the recreational facilities fit well to provide a balance between work and recovery. The Strength and Conditioning gym that we have contributed to is compact but very well stocked and functional. The food and flexibility offered by the staff are ideal for getting the most out of a training camp at Carton House.”

"Just a few lines to say thank you for your help in making our event such a success last week. I was very pleased with the service, venue and facilities and all of our delegates commented on what a fantastic hotel Carton House is. I was overwhelmed by the positive feedback from our team who commented they would love to return at some time in the future for business or with their partners to enjoy the range of Spa and leisure facilities. I also would have no hesitation in using Carton House as a venue for similar events in the future."

Conference Direct

"We had a wonderful event at the hotel during the Dresser-Rand ESA Sales and Marketing week. The staff were wonderful and so very accommodating when it came to helping with the transfers, guest room substitutions, last minute requests, overall friendliness at the desk and lobby kitchen.  The group was very complimentary of the hotel staff throughout the week and my wish is that you would pass my sentiments on to the staff.  In particular the front desk group, Verena, Jayde, Loren, Niamh and Karl made certain that the guests last minute requests and questions were met with a smile each and every time. We will certainly keep the property in mind when we begin the sourcing for our 2015 events."

Tracey Rath,
Global Account Executive.

Francis, yourself and your team (Gerry and Matt in particular) were a tremendous help and made the day run seamlessly. You were always on hand to make my life easier! Our guests were delighted with the personal one to one treatment and hospitality they received and felt like the entire day was devoted to them.
Samantha; bar and waiting staff were wonderful. They could not do enough to help and provide more and above what was required. The food was lovely and everyone really had a great time.

Boehringer Ingelheim Event

"Dear Gosia,
You have a superb team in Carton House! No issue was too big, no request too difficult to deal with and staff whom at all times were pleasant, courteous and smiling. Our event was hugely successful and your team played a major part in this.
I would like to say a personal thank you to Jude who looked after us on both Friday night and Saturday day. He was there whenever needed and was so professional!
Also a thank you to Arthur for his smooth running of our meal on Friday night, Agnes for overseeing Saturday morning’s set up and always willing to help, Loren, Sinead, Paul and Meagan at reception for their total professionalism at all times and of course yourself Gosia – you were a huge help to me in organising this event and I am very thankful.
On the back of the success of this event, we are booking for next year.
I look forward to dealing with you all again!"



"I just wanted to thank you very much for all your help in organising our January Christmas Party.
The whole stay in Carton House had been very enjoyable for all our staff and we really had a great time.
Thank you."



"I would like to send you this e-mail as a thank you for all your help and efforts that made the first appreciation party to our customer Lufthansa Airmotive Ireland a true success.
My experience dealing with you and the Carton House will stay with me as very professional, staying on the ball when I was not sure of the date, not pushing, instead very polite, listening to all my needs during the weeks of preparation, adjusting rooms, canapés, drinks and prices to suit my budget.
As a family circumstance made me personally unavailable to attend and host the party, I felt in very good hands to leave the rest with you and your team."
I think the Carton House is very lucky to have such a dedicated, professional and customer oriented team member like you are."


Scolmore International Event

"I have just organised a golf event at Carton House for 43 people. The standard of service that we have received has been truly outstanding ! As a company we always ensure our events are at renowned hotels particularly when the trip is geared around golf but I can honestly say that none of them have lived up to the service given by your employees.
Gosia has been very professional and helpful which made the whole process a lot easier. On arrival I was told that Steven would be able to assist me if I needed anything and that theme continued throughout the whole time we were there.
Nothing has been too much trouble and they have gone out of their way to assist me as the event co-ordinator to make sure I had everything I needed to make the event a success. We have had emails back from customers saying it's one of the best venues and events they've been to. One is considering moving a planned event from Portugal  to Carton House - that's how impressed he was. The food was  outstanding at every sitting ! I was just blown away by it all."

Scolmore International 2013

MCI Law Society

"I am just in the office now and want to drop you a note to say thank you so much for all your help.
Working with you on this event has been a pleasure and all my requests were handled so quickly, even all the last minute accommodation changes.
The event went so smoothly and the feedback from my client and the delegates has all been extremely positive.
Can you please also pass on my thanks to Luksaz and Morgan who were also great and so helpful."

Four Courts

"Many thanks to you and all your colleagues for our excellent weekend at Carton. There was universal approval from the delegates for the location we had chosen.
A special word of thanks to and praise for Fiona Mullin who accommodated our many requests in every way possible.
I would also like to mention the two duty managers over the weekend Arthur and Lucas who were both very helpful as indeed were all the staff.
I look forward to visiting Carton again either in a private capacity or possibly some event or meeting."


"Now the dust has settled on what was an epic week last week, I can take the time to say one further thank you to each of you and all the members of your teams for your help with our golf day last Monday. Every aspect of the event had been well-planned and executed by each of the various departments, from the hotel, to the catering, to the on-course activities and the use of the range, and all of this done in a faultless and ever helpful manner.
The number of thank yous that we have received from our guests has been very pleasing, and as I have alluded to above the comments relate to all aspects of the event, with particular praise for the superb condition that the course was in."

Europa Hardware

"I just want to express my thanks for a lovely day on Saturday in the golf club. The food was really excellent and they left it there for the evening which was great as our guests were able to get something to eat whenever they arrived.
We were also allowed stay in the golf club for the remainder of the day so I presumed that the large golf group must have cancelled as we had the room to ourselves.
I must also pass on my sincere compliments to all your staff and management on the day but I would particularly like to highlight Antonio your waiter from Spain. The level of personal service we received from him for the day was first class and he made everyone feel so relaxed and welcome."


"Thank you very much for your support during our stay at Carton House. Customers have been satisfied and that was our main target.
Golf and Golf Club was perfect and very well organized. Gerry had everything under control. People enjoyed atmosphere at the terrace.
Service was excellent, that was also feedback from the customers. Your help and the help of the rest of the staff were amazing. I hope it was o.k. for you, too."


Referral Institute U.S.A & Ireland

"As a training and consulting organisation with a world-wide reputation for excellence, the official launch in Ireland recently of our 'Referrals For Life' programme was a major development. Our choice of venue and the impression it would create was one of our most important considerations.
We were confident that our decision to use Carton House would be the right one, when you walk into this venue the atmosphere alone speaks for itself. Over and above this, the service and attention we received for the week we were hosted there was exceptional and the rates quite frankly were great value.
Thank you Carton House - we're the world leaders in 'Word-of-Mouth' marketing, and we'll be spreading the word about our experience with you! We have already decided we will be working with you again for our follow-on event next year."
