The Morrison Room at Carton House

One of the grandest dining locations in Ireland

A breathtaking space, The Morrison Room at Carton House is one of our country’s grandest dining rooms. Here, guests are invited to immerse themselves in an exclusive fine dining experience that engages the senses and inspires the imagination.

When you enter The Morrison Room you are entering a place where classic refinement meets the best of contemporary Irish dining. As a marriage between the finely wrought, traditional interiors of the Georgian period and the sophistication of a haute cuisine restaurant, The Morrison Room immediately entices guests into a world of elegance and enchantment.

Admire the morning light spilling over your impeccably laid breakfast table. Savour the taste of delicacies such as caviar and aged beef. Enjoy the ruby red glimmer of fine red wine and delight in the theatrics of flambé as you begin to understand why The Morrison Room has enraptured guests for over 200 years.

Designed by the celebrated architect Richard Morrison in 1815, The Morrison Room was the centre of social life for Carton House in its heyday, hosting aristocrats, politicians and even royalty in the very same room you sit in today. This legacy elevates the experience of dining at The Morrison Room and infuses it with a sense of timelessness - after all, sharing an exceptional meal, taking in the grandeur of the room itself and making memories with one another are all pursuits that beautifully transcend the years of history that come to life at Carton House.

Today, The House is once again the heart of the Carton House experience, and The Morrison Room is what makes it beat. This is a place where old fashioned service meets haute cuisine to deliver a truly immersive dining experience. Ultimately, The Morrison Room is an experience that speaks for itself.
