Co Kildare hotel restaurant added to Michelin Guide 2023

The Morrison Room at Carton House, a Fairmont managed hotel, is one of four Irish restaurants added to the UK and Ireland edition of The Michelin Guide. The monthly additions are described as 'the Michelin inspectors’ favourite new restaurants'.

Of The Morrison Room, The Michelin Guide stated, “We all need a little glamour in our lives, and this restaurant within the vast, luxurious Carton House resort provides it in spades.

'The room is gloriously showy and boldly ornate; this is certainly dressing up time. The menu is an eclectic mix of French classicism, Asian influences and, of course, prime Irish ingredients – be sure to try the delicious Irish cheeses with honey from the Estate.”

Carton House reopened in June 2021 after a two-year, multimillion-euro renovation and reimagining of the original house, surrounding hotel and stunning grounds and parkland.

The refurbishment put the spectacular Palladian-style mansion, The Manor House, at the heart of the guest experience, with the particularly special addition of The Morrison Room, a spectacular room which has been transformed into the resort’s fine dining restaurant and morning breakfast room.

General Manager Martin Mangan expressed his pride in his team at being listed in The Michelin Guide, “I’m delighted for Head Chef Charles Degrendele [pictured], our Director of Food and Beverage Thomas Lagrue, our Restaurant Manager Marie Soudain and all their team in The Morrison Room who have received this fantastic recognition.

'We want The Morrison Room to be a really special part of our guest experience, a meal that they’ll remember long after they’ve experienced it, so for this to be noted by the esteemed Michelin inspectors is really wonderful.”
