Carton House Golf Club, Maynooth

#7 of 68 in Golf in Province of Leinster
Get a game in at Carton House Golf Club, a renowned golf facility with several challenging courses. The estate itself once belonged to the Dukes of Leinster, and the lawns feature tall, old trees. Prime golf holes include the 14th, 15th and 16th, a pair of threes wrapped around a heroic par five. If you are hoping to stay longer than a day, consider booking a room at the hotel, which has received rave reviews and reports of excellence. The attraction earned the title of European Golf Resort of the Year in 2008 and Best New Hotel 2007.

    Steer clear of the club house for food... really really disappointing and over priced. They clearly are aware of it as they ask patrons to pay prior to eating.  more »

    Amazing views, massive golf course, big exclusive hotel. There is an old tower to visit, and a mini waterfall (which unfortunately can't be visited when there are golfers playing golf due to safety). Great place to go for a walk.

    Very nice hotel, surrounded by amazing landscape.. Staffs are nice and breakfast is good. Walking to the town is a bit far, but it's so enjoyable.

    Impressive location with large golfing facilities. The restaurant has stunning views and offers a great range of food. Go have a walk in the gardens, have a tea on the terrace or enjoy the spa.

    Not what I was expecting, foyer/reception is very impersonal, food menu is extremely limited as is the areas to eat. Hotel looks much better from the outside. Not the place to go to celebrate an occasion.

    Unbelievable scenery, the grounds are massive with 2 excellent golf courses and is in a great location. The house itself is from another world and has an amazing mix of old and new. There are plenty of places to eat and the guest rooms are great. My partner and I have set our wedding date for carton house and we can't wait for the day to come.
