In January 2020 we began the final phase of renewal for the estate, a thoughtful restoration and luxury redesign which will put The House at the very heart of a new Carton House experience for our guests to enjoy. We look forward to revealing this to you all in spring 2021. Until then, the hotel will remain closed to guests. We continue to welcome guests to enjoy the Carton House Golf experience including our gastropub The Carriage House however in line with current government level 5 restrictions, these are both now closed until 2nd December.
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.
Pause in time at Carton House and enjoy a unique and awe-inspiring experience.
