Carton House, A Fairmont Managed Hotel

Main conference hotel of the IDC 2023

Queen Victoria knew it well. Grace Kelly and Prince Rainier came for a holiday. Peter Sellers and Marianne Faithfull lived here for years. When the 1st Duke of Leinster chose it for his country seat in 1739, it stayed in the FitzGerald family until the mid 20th century. Now it’s all yours and you’ve never experienced anything quite like it.

As you step through the doors of our magnificent hotel where the old and new blend seamlessly together, you are taking a step back in time to experience the lives of the Irish aristocracy who once resided here. The original period details of the manor house merge harmoniously with the contemporary luxury touches one would expect to find from a luxury resort, perfectly paired with a warm Irish welcome to create an unforgettable guest experience.

This timeless Palladian mansion is set on 1,100 acres of sweeping Kildare parkland waiting for you to explore its history and heritage, its nature and wildlife, its flora and fauna. At Carton there is space. Whether you have come to indulge in spectacular cuisine, relax in the spa or celebrate one of life’s special moments, you will leave with memories to last a lifetime or until your next visit.
