Our Inspector's View

The Mount Juliet Estate is set in 1,500 acres of parkland with a Jack Nicklaus-designed golf course and an equestrian centre. The spacious public areas of the house retain many original architectural features including ornate plasterwork and Adam fireplaces. Bedrooms and suites are elegant and comfortably appointed to a high standard, with more compact rooms available in the Clubhouse annexe, less than a five-minute walk away. Award-winning fine dining is on offer in the ornate Lady Helen Restaurant overlooking the river; with brasserie-style cuisine in Kendal's located in the golf clubhouse. The President's Bar is the location for all-day dining and the opportunity for alfresco dining when the weather permits. The hotel has an excellent spa and health club, with other country pursuits and activities also available.

About The area

Discover County Kilkenny

Regularly voted Ireland’s friendliest city, Kilkenny is a welcoming and historic place, famous for its beer and castles. There are also a number of local gold and silversmiths here who make lovely jewellery.

The area rose to prominence in the 13th century along with the powerful Anglo-Norman Butler family, the Earls of Ormond. Their castle rises above a bend in the River Nore, looking out over a modern urban core with plenty of historic nooks.

St Canice founded the monastic settlement here in the sixth century and by the 13th century the adjacent town had become an important base for Norman rule in Leinster. These days it’s an important base for design. The Kilkenny Design Centre draws on the skills of more than 200 artisans from all over Ireland, creating a nationally recognised outlet for a wide range of crafts. The emphasis is on natural fibres and materials, be they linen, silk, wool or cashmere for clothing, silver and gold for jewellery, locally made, hand-blown Jerpoint glassware, or traditional and contemporary gifts made from wood and porcelain.

The city is also known for its beer – Smithwick’s brewery occupies the site of the old Franciscan friary.
