Wonderful weekend

StenS27 Friends getaway - TripAdvisor review

European country estate living at its finest. The rooms, food, amenities and particularly the service were all fantastic. The greenest of countrysides. We were visiting with a large friend group and didn’t get a chance to play either of the golf courses albeit we did stop in the pro shop for swag and golf talk. We will return with our sticks as the courses looked great and Carton House certainly has the proper complementing whiskey offerings.

Amazing experience

Spent a night recently in Carton House Hotel. 5 star hotel and 5 star experience. From the moment we entered the estate the grounds breath taking. Beautiful walks/trails. The staff were so kind and helpful. We were welcomed by the hotel manager Martin who was in reception at the time. We felt so very special and the staff couldn't do enough to make our stay so memorable. The food was so tasty both the dinner and breakfast. Very festive throughout the hotel with Christmas decorations and the Christmas shop. Looking forward to our Christmas pudding which we purchased from the Christmas shop. The bedroom was spacious and very comfortable. Spotlessly clean. Bedlinen and pillows so comfortable and luxurious. What a beautiful sunrise. A very relaxing and special place. Overall an amazing experience we will not forget. We will return.

Disappointed with facilities

My son had his wedding there . We stayed 3 nights and also had a 2nd day for guests in the Carriage House from 2.00pm to 6.00pm. We had people from all over the world as my son works abroad . Guests were very disappointed that at 10.45pm to be informed that the bar was closed and no more drinks were being served .This happened on the Friday night as guests were arriving in late and also on the Sunday night. Its impossible to explain to people coming from Dubai and Saudi Arabia that Carton House is a 5 star hotel and yet get this type of service At the very least this should have been explained to the wedding party in advance. The attention to detail is also something I would question but I will leave that to the Bride and Groom to deal with . For an occasion that should have been free from any stress or need to complain, the Carton House experience is not what we would have expected and would not be recommended Carton as a wedding venue.

Couples anniversary treat.

Amazing overnight stay. Dinner in the kitchen was fabulous, quiet on a monday late september but it was lovely to have a little space in the restaurant. Amazing cocktails, tried whiskey sour and amaretto sour as the night cap and definitely recommend. The bed in the old house was so comfortable, i did not want to leave it. The rooms in the old house are stunning, i am raging that i didnt take more pictures! The golf club was busy but lovely for a tiny pre dinner walk and cocktail. The grounds are extensive, woth a golf course on site and some falcony seemed to be booked the day we were there. The host was fab and gave us an impromptu intro to the birds while waiting for his booking. Relaxing night away on a 5 star level, i felt so special and welcomed!

We had a lovely stay to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Excellent service from every staff member we encountered, as always. Our room (100) was very nice and spacious, however the noise from the automatic doors below us was a bit annoying so we wouldn’t choose this room again. We had a nice meal in Kathleen’s kitchen but found it unbearably warm so we cut our meal short. Breakfast was excellent.
