Outstanding hotel
We stayed 6 nights as a family of 5 for our 2021 staycation, and Carton House did not disappoint. The hotel - newly refurbished, with a lot of money spent on the upgrade - was outstanding in terms of comfort, quality and the beautiful surroundings (2 championship golf courses and 1100 acres of woods and country walks). Food offerings were excellent, especially the 5-course tasting menu in the Morrison Room, which surely must be destined to achieve a Michelin Star soon.

The best place to get engaged
Carton house was incredible we couldn’t recommend it more. I was planning on proposing to my partner during our stay here and so I needed to organise a few things on the QT with their staff beforehand. They’re were extremely helpful and went above and beyond to make sure our stay was more special than we could have imagined. We actually loved it so much we’re now looking at getting married there. The grounds, facilities, rooms and staff were incredible. Highly recommend this hotel.

Absolutely loved our stay at Carton House — the grounds are simply spectacular, with great walks and activities nearby (Hill of Tara and Newgrange, among others), and a wonderful golf course on property. The food was outstanding, the dining rooms magnificent, and the service excellent. Our room was fine, nothing special, but overall we loved our stay.

Fantastic family time playing golf, cycling around the estate seeing the natural beauty and wildlife/deer. Food and service at the Carriage House were off excellent standard and we were so well ooked after. Breakfast in the old house was beautiful and very luxurious. Leisure facilities were very clean and easy to book and not overcrowded. Bedrooms have been refurbished and extremely comfortable.

Excellent stay
I found Carton House to be a lovely stay from start to finish. It has recently been done up and has been done so beautifully. The rooms were lovely and spacious and the restaurants were lovely! We are in Kaylas kitchen for dinner and had breakfast in the Morrison room and both were lovely!
