Open daily from December 11th until 30th, the Carton House Christmas Shop is a treasure trove of treats in the setting of the Lady Lennox Suite, just beside reception. From midday until 8 p.m. daily until December 30th, this is a one-stop shop for lovers of the good things in life, and perfect for some last minute presents, guaranteed to please.
With a range of homemade Carton House products and some charming local collaborations, there is everything from simple stocking fillers to generously significant gifts, all carefully selected to create a sense of the Carton House experience at home.
Homemade by Carton House chefs, there’s a wide range of festive goodies to add an elegant flavour of this storied estate to anyone’s Christmas table, from ham glaze to cranberry & clementine sauce, pear & apricot chutney to red onion & ruby port marmalade. For Christmas morning, gift the house-warming aroma of a bottle of bake at home Carton House soda bread mix with some of the estate’s own honey and some delicious Carton House own blend coffee. For later in the day there’s Carton’s own whiskey, Christmas pudding as well as a carefully curated selection of wine.
Fill any house this Christmas with the beautifully fragranced scent of Sómas – a delightfully rich black fig and vetiver scent made in collaboration with Carton House to commemorate it becoming Ireland’s first Fairmont Hotel, and the perfect seasonal blend of warming notes of cedarwood with zesty citrus fruits. There’s also a wide range of Christmas products and gift sets from spa partners and one of the world’s leading wellness brands, Aromatherapy Associates, with their hand-crafted essential oil-rich products to help reduce stress, boost energy and cultivate relaxation.
There are handsome Carton House leather items and branded golf apparel, and prints of local artist Roisin Bean’s exquisite drawings of various aspects of Carton House and its grounds, from the picturesque Boat House to panoramic views of The House itself, as well as other local scenic spots.
And lastly, and most importantly, there are gift cards for monetary amounts of your choice available, as well as for a curated selection of exceptional experiences at Carton House.
Whether it be a leisurely afternoon tea, an indulgent spa day, dinner for two in the gorgeous Morrison Room, an overnight stay, a wine tasting in the beautifully redesigned wine space, The Duke’s Rest, the original game hanging room for the FitzGerald family, or an all-Irish whiskey tasting in The Whiskey Library, the book-lined, original library of Carton, now there are special experiences at Carton House to be given as never to be forgotten gifts this Christmas.
For those who can’t make it to shop in person, gift cards can be purchased and posted directly to the recipient via cartonhouse.com, to you for giving in person, or emailed and printed at home, for any last minute presents you might need.
Give a little Carton House style, polish and sophistication this Christmas, from the Carton House Christmas Shop open from midday until 8 p.m. daily from December 11th – 30th.
