The Carriage House:  Stylish, yet relaxed and sophisticated, The Carriage House fuses the atmosphere of a cozy inn, the warmth of an authentic Irish welcome, and the effortless style of a modern meeting place. Once the FitzGerald family’s carriage lodge, on this site, seven carriages were housed – an unequivocal sign of accomplishment nowhere else seen across the island of Ireland at the time. Honoring the resort’s history, The Carriage House lives on today, woven in the very same thread. Steeped in history, the venue retains much of its 18th century fixtures and is a gateway to the enduring enchantment that is Carton House. Enjoy Irish cuisine inspired by local roots and curated cocktails designed by in-house mixologists using Artisanal Brands.
