Having stayed here a few times, for family occasions and golf weekends, I have come to the conclusion that the staff at this resort are not friendly, are unable to make any kind of decision and quite frankly, they don't really care either. Upon checking in to the hotel at 3pm the last time we stayed, we were met with an unavailable room and asked to sit in the lobby and wait until our room had been cleaned. Surely we could have checked in, left our bags and picked up a room key at a later time???? Our table was double booked in the restaurant and cosequently, we ended eating an hour after our booking time. (No complimentary drinks while we waited ).

The only saving grace for this hotel is the fact that the location and golf courses and buildings are second to none! If they would only bring the staff to the same level

Stayed: November 2012

Stayed on a DB&B package booked on their own website. Fantastic ! Lovely rooms very clean, staff delightful and the evening meal included was brilliant value for money. I highly recommend the lux pedicure in their spa-the best I have ever had-as not just a treat for the feet -whole sounds/smells and gentle head massage was a whole body treat.

Fantastic location to celebrate our anniversary, beautiful location that gives a sense of isolation whilst being a short drive from Dublin city center. Beautiful grounds for enjoyable walking and complimented by the spa and leisure facilities. Chose to eat within the clubhouse restaurant on our first night for a less formal dining experience and the more formal linden tree restaurant on our second evening. Both could not be faulted, service and food were excellent on each occasion. Lunch in the kitchen bar was also enjoyed. This hotel also hosted the Ireland rugby team for training, even as an Englishman it was a pleasure to meet some of the players here and watch them train. Which only highlights how impressive this place is. Our room was well appointed and very comfortable. I miss it already and will return someday. Thank you Carton House. Have played the O`Mera course here before, again great!

Room Tip: stayed in 236 flawless. Housekeeping staff were excellent.

I just recently stayed at Carton House Hotel, and i have to say it was one of the best experiences i have had to date .. from the moment you walk through the doors the warmth and atmosphere is electrical, the staff in the bar area, restaurant and spa were exceptional and the foods was "top class" overall as you can see from my comments i had a wonderful stay

This is a lovely hotel not cheap but in a beautiful setting all the staff we met were very friendly and professional. Unfortunately the spa was booked out the day we were there so didn't get to experience it. Pool is not that big and there was lots of kids there so very family friendly but maybe not ideal for those looking for relaxing swim. The room was very nice and good size with beautiful big bath in the bathroom. Food was very good we made the mistake of late lunch which was very generous portion for the price and then we didn't fully appreciate dinner as still full from lunch! The restaurant is very nice we had a nice table near a window with lovely view of a huge old tree. Breakfast selection very good and the way it's laid out works really well in the restaurant for large numbers of people.
Really enjoyed our stay we got a good package deal which was good value as dinner and breakfast included.
