Carton House Maynooth

Set amongst the lush grounds of Carton House, 2013 marked the first year of the outdoor sculpture event Vanishing Art. The estate of Carton House, once the ancestral home of the Earls of Kildare and Dukes of Leinster, provides the perfect backdrop for one of Ireland’s most exciting developments in sculptural exhibition. The land , which originally came into the ownership of the Fitzgerald family in 1176, covers 1,100 acres. It is amongst these sprawling private parklands that visitors are invited to explore and discover the artworks of the Vanishing Art exhibition.
