Carton House

Recent guest reviews

All service were good at Carton House. They have a nice restaurant in house, and it would be a good idea to make a reservation even if you are the hotel guest. The restaurant are pretty busy with local people, and most of restaurant customers are dressed up.

We stayed in the new wing of this 18th Century country estate. The setting is beautiful, two golf courses, with the new wing rooms very modern, with special details like great reading lights on the bed lamps. The rooms from the original house that are now used for meetings and events are elegrant and unique. Ask to see the Chinese Room. We had an excellent meal in the Coach House which has a broader menu that the main restaurant and is more informal.

We enjoyed staying at the Carton House for our last night in Ireland. We roughed it throughout much of our two weeks there, so this was the lap of luxury for us. Our room was large, nice comfy robes and slippers to lounge around in, impeccably clean bedroom and bathroom, comfortable large bed, and it had very nice views of the extensive grounds. I wish the bar restaurant was open later than 7:30pm as I was more impressed with some of their food options than the restaurant. Make a reservation if you plan on eating at the restaurant. The grounds were quite lovely to walk around on after dinner, and the location is quite a ways off of the main road so you feel like you are in the middle of the countryside - great for a good night's sleep before heading to the airport (quick and easy from this location)! The room service rates were pretty acceptable as well if you would prefer to stay in. Make sure to explore the entire hotel- this means getting over to the original part of the house; the rooms are decorated accordingly & beautiful!
