Situated in the university town of Maynooth, County Kildare, Carton House is one of Ireland’s most exquisite national treasures, a luxury Irish resort ready to welcome you to magnificent grounds, featuring exceptional golf and spa relaxation. Over 1,100 acres of sweeping parkland, ancient woodlands and the meandering River Rye create the perfect backdrop for this awe-inspiring country mansion. Once the ancestral home of the Earls of Kildare and the Dukes of Leinster, this walled garden golfing estate is the ideal escape!
When you arrive at Carton House, you enter a place rich with over three centuries of history. Originally the home of the influential and aristocratic FitzGerald family, its history is as dramatic and storied as that of the nation itself – rich in art, culture, romance and politics, echoes of which can be felt as you walk the halls today.
A world away from reality, fill your days with on site activities including cycling, fishing, falconry or tennis, or explore the surrounding areas and visit one of the recommended local activities including the luxury shopping outlet Kildare Village or the nearby state of the art gun range. Enjoy one of the woodland walking trails, cycle along the Canal Greenway or tennis courts, plan a picnic, savor a whiskey or wine tasting, and so much more. Pike, wild brown trout or salmon fishing is also available on the lake and river at Carton. Add to this a choice of multiple unique dining outlets, two championship golf courses and an award-winning spa and wellness facility, and Carton House is luxury resort escapism at its best.
Golf at Carton House is like no other. Here, it’s not just a game, it’s a fully immersive experience with championship standards, professionalism and insight. Amid exquisite views and impeccably maintained fairways, choose from the classic parkland O’Meara which meanders through ancient woodlands and the banks of the river Rye, or play on the soil many a legend has with the challenge of the inland links Montgomerie. Test your skill level at the National Golf Academy located onsite, and see if you can rise to the challenge.
Check out from the chaos of everyday life with a Carton House Spa & Wellness experience.
