Mount Juliet Estate
Mount Juliet Estate was a family home until 1989 and 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. 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. Mount Juliet Estate offers two unique hotels the Manor house and the Hunter’s Yard Hotel.
Mount Juliet Manor house was designed during the Georgian era, so you will find the rooms as bright and as generously proportioned, as they are luxurious. Each individually decorated room is equipped with the latest technology and conveniences. The Lady Helen restaurant in the Manor house has received a Michelin star and 3 AA Rosettes for its internationally-themed menu consisting of dishes made using local ingredients, including many from our own kitchen garden, herb garden and farm. The atmosphere of opulence within the Lady Helen Restaurant complements the pastoral views out over the pastures to the River Nore. In a bygone era when Mount Juliet Estate was a working farm of several thousand acres, many people were employed and housed on the Estate. Back then, Hunter’s Yard would have had horses and hay lofts, as well as lodgings for the grooms, coachmen and stable boys.
Today, this elegant courtyard, just five minutes' walk from the Manor house, is home to the 93 bright and spacious rooms of the Hunter's Yard. A tranquil hideaway adjacent to our Jack Nicklaus signature designed golf course and only a few paces from the treatment rooms and the tempting menus of the Hound Restaurant at Hunter's Yard, which offers all-day dining. Specially designed as a more casual, laid-back luxury option, Hunter’s Yard is a fresh take on Mount Juliet’s rich heritage, and a natural extension of the estate’s genuine and memorable hospitality.
