The Morrison Room at Carton House

One of the grandest dining locations in Ireland

The Morrison Room is the destination restaurant at Carton House, easily one of the country’s grandest and most gorgeous dining rooms, and the social heart of The House for over 200 years.

The 8 course tasting experience and table d'hote menus are designed by a young and ambitious team and are all about celebrating the produce of this authentically food-rich, food-focused part of the country.

Originally from Marseille, Head Chef Charles Degrendele creates imaginative, thoughtful and skilful seasonal market and tasting menus with a strong French influence, drawing on fine Irish local and foraged ingredients to showcase some of Kildare and the country’s most talented and dedicated artisan producers.

The craftsmanship of the past and its focus on exceptional materials — the intricately carved marble fireplaces, the exquisite coffered ceilings — are echoed in the contemporary craftsmanship on the plate in The Morrison Room, with old-school flavours, foraged elements and meticulous techniques.

Celebrate the finest Irish ingredients with an exceptional, sophisticated dining experience in the heart of The House, in an historical room like no other where modern cuisine meets refined service.
