Welcome to
Carton House, A Fairmont Managed Hotel

Situated in the university town of Maynooth, County Kildare, Carton House is a luxury Irish resort. 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 located just 25 minutes from Dublin International Airport.
As we navigate through these extra-ordinary times together, the safety of our guests and colleagues is paramount to us. Rest assured, Carton House has taken all of the necessary health and safety measures on board and implemented these across the resort in line with both the ALLSafe code of practice and Irish government regulations.


Guests will feel completely at ease from the moment of arrival through the estate gates and enjoy complete escapism until the moment of departure. Luxurious accommodation, opulent and relaxing surroundings and our welcoming colleagues will ensure this is ensured. A vast array of guest bedroom types are available to ensure your stay is as comfortable as possible, whatever your requirements. Choose to stay in The House, an 18th century Palladian style mansion, where stories can be found at every touch point, or in the more contemporary Garden Wing, offering a number of terrace and balcony guest rooms looking outward on the magnificent 1,100 acre vista.
