Tel: +353 (0)56 7773000 Email: Website: WWW.MOUNTJULIET.IE

The elegant grandeur of a magnificent Georgian Manor House. The chic sophistication of Hunter’s Yard. Our two residences draw on centuries of local Irish history to weave a rich tapestry of vibrant stories and memorable moments for every guest who stays with us… All wrapped up in the very finest contemporary comforts, state-of-the-art facilities and breath-taking surroundings imaginable.

Magnificent specimen trees, miles of rushing river and verdant pastures all play their part, bringing sensational natural beauty to our golf course that is ranked among the world’s finest parkland courses. The course has played host to numerous unforgettable tournaments and has captured the hearts of countless golfers around the world. This summer we are excited to host the staging of the 2022 Horizon Irish Open bringing some of the world’s finest Professionals back to Mount Juliet Estate.  

Our Michelin-starred Lady Helen restaurant has become a true destination for diners, who long to experience the way that Head Chef John Kelly takes locally sourced produce to soaring new heights with every dish. Kelly and his team offer a culinary experience that is conjured from that very land, with many of the dishes using ingredients from the Mount Juliet Estate and local suppliers just a stone’s throw beyond its walls.  

There is a legacy to the Mount Juliet Estate experience that stretches far beyond the luxury of the bedrooms, famous championship golf course and the decadence of the dining options. Perhaps you feel the urge to thunder through open pastures and traipse across woodland trails on horseback. Maybe you want to feel the tug on your line and the splash from the River Nore as a salmon takes your bait. And have you ever felt the singular rush of an arrow flying forth from your bow or a falcon swooping down to land at your command? 

We offer a unique range of activities on the estate, unparalleled in the way they combine deep-seated historical traditions with the best modern equipment and practices.
