From the moment you arrive you will understand exactly why the 19th Earl of Kildare chose this spectacular location for the Fitzgerald familys country seas. Built in 1739 and designed by the famed architect Richard Castles, the magnificent silhouette of Carton House overlooks one of Irelands most impressive country estates with majestic authority. During its colorful history Carton House observed the cosmopolitan and glamorous lifestyles of both royalty and celebrity. The estate has welcomed such diverse company as Queen Victoria, Prince Rainier, Grace Kelly and Peter Sellers with the estate providing the backdrop for many TY and film productions, including Stanley Kubricks Barry Lyndon. Designed and built to complement the elegance of the main house and its surrounding buildings, the luxury hotel bedrooms offer a seamless blend of comfort and style and elegantly furnished and beautifully decorated. Carton House will exude the same style, warmth and at attention to detail that pervades every aspect of the Carton House demesne. Old and new converge to evoke its own individual charm, and the hotel is distinctive by its stylish decor, spectacular settings, impeccable service and the latest in modern conveniences and amenities.
