The Courtyard Bar at Carton House is an exquisite welcoming space that perfectly fuses the natural beauty of one of Carton House’s finest estate courtyards, with the elegant refinement of its iconic interiors.
Relax and indulge in our specially curated drinks menu as you sit and savour the dichotomy of this special place. The setting itself is a dramatic interplay of light and shadow that transforms the area with the seasons. Sunlight streams in from outside bringing to life potted fig trees that perfectly frame the original courtyard walls. The strength and majesty of these walls are perfectly complemented by delicately manicured gardens; before this timeless vista opens onto acres of rolling estate landscape.
Originally the Kitchen Courtyard for Carton House; the best of local produce came into the service end of The House right here, before being prepared and served to some of Ireland’s finest gentry. A Bake House with large ovens and brewery for the estate also looked onto the Courtyard. The bustle of everyday life has echoed through these courtyard walls for centuries.
Today like yesteryear, The Courtyard Bar remains a treasure trove of activity and atmosphere for its guests. Where outside meets in, where old meets new, where day turns to night with graceful ease, this is a truly unique place to be savoured time and time again.
