Accor To Rebrand Carton House As Fairmont Carton House
French hospitality group Accor has announced that it is taking over the management of Co. Kildare's Carton House Hotel and rebranding it as Fairmont Carton House.
The hotel is currently undergoing a multi-million euro refurbishment to convert it into a Fairmont property. The refurbishment is expected to be completed by the end of 2020, at which point the hotel will be rebranded as Fairmont Carton House.
At present, more than 80 properties around the world operate under the Fairmont banner. The revamped Carton House will be the first Fairmont property in Ireland.
"History And Impressive Locations"
Accor Northern Europe COO Thomas Dubaere stated, "Fairmont Carton House will join the ranks of the iconic Savoy in London and Fairmont St Andrews in Scotland and the recently signed Fairmont Windsor Park, becoming the first Fairmont hotel in Ireland. The Fairmont brand is known for its history and impressive locations, and we feel it is the ideal brand under which to bring this iconic historic hotel into the Accor family.
"The signing of Fairmont Carton House reflects our expertise in the luxury segment and reinforces our commitment to growing our luxury offering across the UK and Ireland."
"Delivering Fantastic, Second-To-None Service"
Meanwhile, Accor Europe luxury brands COO Marc Dardenne commented, "Fairmont was established over 100 years ago, in 1907, and, throughout this time, has played an important role in cementing the locations where its hotels are based as key destinations for visitors. Luxury travel experiences should focus on delivering fantastic, second-to-none service which embodies the heart of the destination so visitors feel they are staying somewhere unique. Fairmont Carton House will do just that, whether guests are visiting for the golf resort, spa or hotel."
