Carton House dates from 1739 and many of features of that period are reflected in the careful renovation of the fine public rooms and event spaces. While some suites of the hotel are in the original house, most of the bedrooms are in a modern block to the side. All are spacious and comfortable, appointed to a high standard. There are a number of dining options on the estate, including The Coach House in the golf club and The Linden Tree for more formal evening dining. Set in over 1,000 acres, there are plenty of walks and cycle paths to be enjoyed. The property is surrounded by two golf courses and has a strong reputation for its many sport training facilities and spa treatment rooms.
