Carton House Golf Club can be found in the town of Maynooth to the north of County Kildare, Ireland. The club is based just 25km out of Dublin City Centre, or half an hour away from Dublin International Airport, and is home to not one but two championship golf courses, one of which is the O’Meara Course.
The O’Meara Course opened in 2002 and was named after its designer, Mark O’Meara, the famous and multi-award winning golfer, and one of the few people to have won on all the continents on which golf is played.
It has been described by many as a classic parkland golf course, as it rolls through some of the most stunning scenery around, as well as part of the course running alongside the River Rye. The course has hosted some thrilling tournaments in its time, including the 2005 Irish Amateur Championship.
Green Fees for this course are pleasingly reasonable, especially for such an exquisite course, and with discounts for juveniles, students and residents of the Carton House Hotel, as well as specials on early bird and sunset rounds.
Carton House really aims to satisfy every need of its visitors, offering the “Kitchen Bar” and the “Linden Tree Restaurant”, a pro shop to properly equip you for your round and separated secure men’s and women’s changing and locker room facilities.
The club also offers a range of tuition options, from individual classes to an entire round’s worth of training, the onsite professionals will work hard to bring out the best of you in your game.
Carton House Hotel is the onsite hotel, and is the perfect place to relax after a day of golf. Not only does it boast some of the finest accommodation in the area, but also offers full spa facilities and a fitness centre.

Average rating obtained byThis rating for Carton House. is the average of 9 ratings obtained from www.top100golfcourses.co.ukJust come back from Ireland after playing three top courses - The K club, The Hermitage and The Montgomerie at Carton House. All courses were relatively tough in their own way, but The Montgomerie was the most bland, featureless and uninspiring. On the plus side I like the fact that there are a lot of bunkers and they are really deep. This is proper punishment for not finding the fairway. The greens were quite quick and had various contours but they were manageable for a 13 handicapper like me. I would say play this course at least once to test your skills at keeping out of the bunkers, but because there is no real stunning scenery to speak of I won't be returning (despite carding a 86 for my best round of the week).
Average rating obtained byThis rating for Carton House. is the average of 6 ratings obtained from www.ukgolfguide.comI stayed here with my golf society on a golf break booked with Your Golf Travel. The price was excellent and the resort itself has everything you could ever need. We played both courses and although I felt the Montgomerie was the harder of the two courses we really enjoyed the O'Meara especially the holes with the water features. We paid less than Â£100 for 1 night and 2 rounds of golf - it is amazing value.
Average rating obtained byThis rating for Carton House. is the average of 2 ratings obtained from www.1golf.euO'Connell O'Meara course is a classic links course. Expansive fairways with a rapid bunker landscape. The large strongly undulating greens demand all the players. On this place, the Irish open were held from 2013. The semi-Raff should be as far as it is avoided because the grasses can tricky wrap around the bat. The hotel on the square is top and offers all the comforts.
