CARTON HOUSE HOTEL is going on sale today with an asking price of €60 million.

The owners say they have reached consensual agreement with NAMA to put the 668 acre estate near Maynooth, Kildare on the market.

The Mallaghan family and Carton Development Partnership are the joint owners. It’s understood that around €90 million has been spent refurbishing the resort since 1999.

The hotel has 165 bedrooms, including 18 suites located in the original house.

The hotel is known for its impressive sports facilities and golf course. It’s regularly used by the Irish national rugby team and most recently by the 2017 British & Irish Lions.

The facility includes soccer, GAA and rugby training pitches, which have been used in the past by Real Madrid and AC Milan as well as many UK based teams.

It also features two 18-hole championship golf courses and has hosted many championships including the Irish Open on three occasions, most recently in 2013.

Carton House dates back to 1739 and selling agents Savills describes it as “one of Ireland’s most historically important stately homes”.

It was the ancestral home of the FitzGerald family, Earls of Kildare and Dukes of Leinster.
