The Whiskey Library

The Whiskey Library is an exclusive venue dedicated to the appreciation of whiskey at the newly reimagined Carton House, a Fairmont Managed Hotel. Utterly unique, with a smart and sophisticated atmosphere, The Whiskey Library is one of the leading destinations for high-end whiskey tasting across the island of Ireland.

Sip on a 30-year-old single malt after enjoying a long game of golf on one of Carton House's two courses, or simply stop by before or after dinner in The Morrison Room to expand your knowledge of whiskey and ignite your senses. Home to over 120 pot stills, malts, and bourbons from around the globe, an experience at The Whiskey Library is bound to journey you across the world in pursuit of your perfect blend. With guidance from top-class whiskey experts, guests can learn about the drink's dynamic history which, unbeknownst to many, began in Ireland as far back as the 12th-century.

Paying homage to the estate's dramatic history, The Whiskey Library is set in Carton House's original library. Sustaining the room's fundamental essence, The Whiskey Library is a place of quiet reflection; it is an opportunity to connect with one's self or friends old and new; it is a chance to escape the world and invest in you. Unwind in the lap of refined luxury and celebrate in the art of unique blends at The Whiskey Library: Carton House's pinnacle of beverage experiences.

Our whiskey tasting experiences are available by advanced booking only.
