Carton House in Ireland is a stunning venue for a wedding, offering a combination of history, elegance, and natural beauty. Nestled in the rolling countryside of County Kildare, the 18th-century mansion has been carefully restored and renovated to provide the perfect setting for a romantic and unforgettable wedding. I wanted to lift the lid on what you can expect if you are planning a Carton House wedding.
One of the first things that guests will notice when arriving at Carton House is its incredible history. The estate dates back to the 1730s and has been home to several prominent Irish families over the centuries. The house and grounds have been beautifully preserved, giving the venue a sense of grandeur and elegance that is sure to impress.
For the ceremony, couples have the option of getting married in the Princess Grace Suite or the Lady Granville Suite, both of which are spectacular locations in which to say your ‘I Do’s’, incorporating understated opulence. Both of these spaces also benefit from a private lounge and deck area with stunning views, perfect to go inside your Carton House wedding album.
Another option for larger celebrations is the Carton Suite, offering you and your guests a larger space to say your vows surrounded by luxury and even more picturesque views.
Couples can also choose to exchange their vows in one of the many outdoor ceremony locations that can be found throughout the grounds.
After the ceremony, the couple and their guests can enjoy drinks and canapés on the terrace while taking in the stunning views of the gardens. The reception can be held in one of the elegant suites, each with its own unique style and character. The Fitzgerald suites are a perfect spot for an intimate reception and can accommodate up to 100 guests. Whereas the Carton Suite, on the other hand, is a more grandiose option that can seat up to 300 guests.
Couples and their guests can also take advantage of the many other amenities offered by Carton House, including the spa, the fitness centre, and of course, the golf course. The estate also offers a variety of accommodation options, from luxury suites and tucked-away apartments, making it a perfect spot for a destination wedding in Ireland.
