One of Ireland’s great hotels, Carton House, is set to reopen shortly after an extensive two-year multi-million pound complete refurbishment.
Situated less than 25 miles from Dublin Airport the stunning property, once the ancestral home of the Earls of Kildare and the Dukes of Leinster, lies in 1,100 private acres of sweeping parkland, ancient woodlands, lakes and the meandering River Rye, creates the perfect backdrop for what is a 5-star country mansion.
The spectacular 18th century Palladian-style mansion, The House, is at the heart of the estate and is the centre of the guest experience. It has been dramatically reimagined while its history has been cherished and its state rooms preserved. The remarkably handsome series of grand and imposing rooms in The House with their fascinating history – the stunning Gold Salon, the Drawing Room, the impressive Morrison Room, the Bell Room – are now beautifully restored and part of the daily rituals of Carton House life and at the heart of each guest’s experience.
Marc Dardenne, COO Accor Luxury Europe, said: “Carton House is a spectacular estate with a history spanning more than eight centuries and a staggering historic house dating back to 1739. A property steeped in grandeur, Carton House has offered timeless hospitality for more than 300 years. It is a property befitting the grandest of hotel brands and we are proud to open its doors this summer as part of our world-renowned Fairmont portfolio.”
Carton House offers 18 bedrooms and suites in the upper floors of The House, with a further 151 rooms in The Garden Wing which curves around the formal gardens, offering elegant spaces which have been enhanced in both design and facilities as part of the estate’s transformation.
