Carton House Golf Club is a parkland course located 14 miles west of Dublin City Centre beside the university town of Maynooth.

The golfing resort at Carton House has two testing championship courses, The Montgomerie and the O’Meara. Carton House is also home to the Golfing Union Of Ireland and National Golf Academy.

The Montgomerie Course

Designed by Ryder Cup captain, Colin Montgomerie, the inland links course is characterised by its plentiful bunkers and pristine greens. This allows it to place the maximum level of challenge for a golfer, especially when paired with strong winds.

The O’Meara Course

The O’Meara Course is the older of the two courses with lush Irish parkland featuring many ancient trees, the river Rye and several risk holes to challenge your game. There are almost as many bunkers as on the Montgomerie course, though shallower and more amenable to playing to the pin. Both courses are kept to a very high standard year-round.

Highlights

You might spot a tour pro such as Shane Lowry or Rory McIlroy practising on-site.

Food & Drink

Carton House describes itself as a food lover’s dream. Choose from casual dining at The Carriage House or a post round BBQ on the deck. In The House you can opt for fine dining in The Morrison Room, private whiskey tasting in The Whiskey Library or eat in the former servant’s kitchen, which is now a restaurant called Kathleen’s Kitchen.
