As you drive up the avenue to Carton House you will be surprised to know just how recently it has opened its doors as a luxury hotel. Minimalist interiors, spacious modern rooms, contemporary art and sparkling chandeliers contrast magnificently with the untouched classic exterior and original antique pieces. Just half an hour outside Dublin, the beautifully elegant Palladian house is set in over a thousand acres of stunning parkland, and has attracted a long list of glamorous guests from Queen Victoria to Grace Kelly.
The bright colours and contemporary artwork of the reception welcome guests into the lavish and indulgent world of Carton House. Striking modern art adorns the walls and large glass windows flood the reception with natural light, while high ceilings across the main house create a sense of space and grandeur. The curved corridors are decorated with black and white photographs of the original house, leading guests on an alluring journey through the history of the estate.
