Carlton House Hotel, Maynooth, Co. Kildare
Carlton House Hotel with boathouse in the foreground. Carton House Hotel is one of Ireland's grandest stately homes, having once been the ancestral set of the Earls of Kildare and the Dukes of Leinster. Located on the Rye River, the boathouse is thought to have been built for one of Queen Victoria's visits to Carton. The Queen reportedly had a dream that she was rowing on the lake at Carton so it is said the owners built the boathouse and commissioned a special boat for her visit.
