country seat in 1739, it stayed in the FitzGerald
family until the mid 20th century. Now it’s all
yours and you’ve never experienced anything
quite like it.
Step back in time to one of Ireland’s most

House with the sophistication and simplicity of

A journey of heartstopping moments
The Montgomerie course, winner of Golf
World’s “Best New Design of the Year 2004” is a
serious test. Designed by Colin Montgomerie,
it’s a journey across sweeping fairways,
cavernous bunkers and impeccable greens. It’s
an adventure from first to last and is proud to
have hosted the world’s finest golfers at the
2005 and 2006 Irish Opens.
Colin Montgomerie
Inspired by the greatest links lands of the world,
The Montgomerie Course pays tribute to the
traditions of the game and sets a challenge like
no other. This is golf at its purest; adrenaline
and shot-making at its best. Is your game ready
for the challenge?
European No.1 for a record seven years

A breathless beauty
The O’Meara Course winds its leisurely way
through acres of glorious pastures amongst
the dappled shade of the ancient trees. This
classic parkland course might lull you with its
beauty but is still full of challenges.
You’ll find yourself skirting the banks of the
River Rye then sending the ball soaring over
its golden waters. And, when you cross the
greens, it is as if your feet float on a thousand
velvet kisses from beneath. An exquisite course
that leaves you breathless with admiration and
exhilaration throughout every one of its 7,006
Training facility
The exceptional facilities at Carton House
enable teams to train and work in a private and
exclusive environment. The training facility
hosts two full-size soccer pitches, two fullsize rugby pitches and a GAA (Gaelic Football
and Hurling) pitch of equal dimensions to
Croke Park. The sporting facilities - which were
officially opened in May 2009 - were chosen by
Real Madrid C.F. to host its 10 day pre-season
training camp before the 2009/2010 season
and by the British and Irish Lions for their
summer training camp. Located in a sheltered,
fully enclosed section of the Carton House
Estate, the planning of the facility has been
meticulous, ensuring both excellent pitch
conditions and privacy.
The great outdoors
Besides 36 holes in rolling countryside, we’ve
got some fantastic outdoor activities to
challenge anyone’s stamina. We have even
created a private sports training facility for
professional teams which is one of the best
facilities in Europe. Ireland Xtreme’s themed
zone at Carton House is the first of its kind
in Ireland. Onsite activities range from
motivational team building programmes to
Altitude, Ireland’s newest high and low ropes
course, and 4x4 driving.
Carton House is also home to the GUI National
Academy, the oldest golfing union in the world.
The Academy has a floodlit driving range, three
USGA approved greens and two state-of-theart swing analysis suites.
Our fishery consists of 4.5 kilometres of the
beautiful River Rye. The river is a rich chalk
stream and is home to wild brown trout. It has
been described as one of the most productive
chalk streams in the country. And if you are still
looking for outdoor activity why not avail of
two outdoor tennis courts.
