Mount Juliet Estate: Kilkenny

Mount Juliet was a family home until 1989 and the Manor House remains one of Ireland’s finest country houses, as well as being Co. Kilkenny’s most acclaimed country Estate. We are proud to maintain traditions and standards that have endured from the glory days of the ‘Big House’ - just as we are proud of the hospitality that has brought us international renown.

Mount Juliet’s tradition of hospitality dates back to the 18th Century, when young Somerset Butler and his new bride Juliet, moved into the newly refurbished house, renamed in her honour.

Over the years a great many illustrious people have dined,fished and hunted before resting in one of her 32 sumptuous bedrooms, which are named after a select few of our previous guests – The King of Ossory, The Black Earl, Lady Juliana and Fitzwilliam Le Gros.

On the Estate there are 2 properties, the luxurious 32 bedroom Georgian Manor House and the 93 bedroom Hunter's Yard which offers laid-back luxury with a twist.

A stay at Mount Juliet Estate is a truly unique experience. It’s a place to come and be who you want to be, whether that involves fishing, riding, golfing, archery, falconry or the absolute indulgence of our treatment suites.

Best Hotel Break Ever Having recently spent three days at Mount Juliet, I'm already wanting to return. This has to be the best Irish hotel break I have ever had. From the friendliness and professionalism of staff, to the cleanliness, decor and peacefulness of the hotel, this was five star service all the way. Took an equestrian trial which was one of the highlights of the stay. Both the Hunters Yard and Manor House were equally as nice with a beautiful atmosphere. We will be back!

Surpassed Expectations - which were already high Honestly, every element of our stay surpassed our expectations. From the idyllic setting in the most fabulous parkland setting, through to the genuine welcome from the reception staff - all were outstanding. The rooms in Hunters Yard are exceptional, comfortable and very large. The food in the Saddle Restaurant for both breakfast and for dinner one evening is outstanding. Golf course is wonderful - challenging and a bit long for higher handicap golfers but wonderful all the same. Will definitely be returning and will recommend highly.

"Fabulous" I'd been once before for afternoon tea and found it only ok - but let me tell you I was blown away after staying there. The team working there were so friendly, the room was devine, the bar (though very full and hard to get a seat) was fantastic when we got seated with lovely cocktails & atmosphere. Dinner in Lady helen was lovely - not too stuffy at all and great atmosphere added to by some nice background music. Had a facial in the spa was a fabulous treatment - only negative was the 'relaxation' room which is not a room you'd want to chill in. But honestly I was floating after the facial which was the important part. Definitely will visit again!

Idyllic retreat for the whole Family. We had an excellent time of horse riding, long walks and playing games in the library. We especially loved the high tea. The kids enjoyed their Version. The small details are so thoughtful and exquisite.

"Real treat" We stayed in the Manor House for two nights at the end of March. Dinner in the Lady Helen restaurant was excellent, both the cooking and the service. The Michelin star and the three red AA rosettes are well deserved. A hotel for a very special treat.

"Stunning location for Spring Summit" March weather can be so unpredictable but we had two amazing days in Hunters Yard, with the weather really adding the perfect tone to a wonderful stay Around 80 of us stayed for a work event, all of us staying in the Hunters Yard part of the Mount Juliet estate. HY is a few minutes walk from the main building, it has a huge golf course, landscaped gardens, loads of walks, spa & gym & pool and The Stables function room The Stables function room is an impressive room, over looking the golf course, massive chandeliers hanging from the exposed rafters. We used the function room twice during our stay - once for our event & once for our dinner that night We had pre dinner drinks in the main house & the lovely chauffeur John kindly drove us from one part of the estate to another, he is working in MJE ten years & he had lots of snippets of information. The reception area of the main house is manned by jimmy who was so lovely & friendly. The main house is so elegant and atmospheric The food was top class at dinner, food served piping hot & service very good. I had delicious sea trout for main, the only slight criticism I would mention was that the function room got quite cold after the food had been cleared away. The pre function bar just out side of The Stables function room was a little chilly, the bar man was so excellent and attentive & really went above and beyond to be friendly & engaging. Breakfast the following morning was excellent, the home made Brown bread was particularly good as was the berry compote Lovely place to visit in spring or summer Highly recommend for big groups or intimate parties - would love to go back & explore this area more
