"Impeccable - I felt like I had stepped into a scene from Pride & Predjudice"
03/02/14 Eyeball09 Kingscliff, Australia
We stayed in the Rose Garden Cottages at Mount Juliet Estate for 2 nights and I can honestly say that in years to come, when reflecting on my life, the total experience at Mount Juliet is one that I will recall as being incredibly sumptuous in every aspect. The cottages are 2 bedroom, beautifully finished with all the mod-cons and the bathrooms (there are 2) were so beautifully presented and clean. The king beds are beyond comfortable - like being wrapped in a cloud. I felt like the lady of a country manor staying here. We dined in Kendall's on our first night, by the open fire. The ambience, service and food was spectacular. You know those nights when you don't want to leave because it's just so perfect? That was our night at Kendall's. Additionally, the President's Bar is cosy, welcoming and that perfect venue for an afternoon drink and snack. I was so upset to have to leave - I felt totally at home here. Worth every cent. Spoil yourself.

Just returned from a two night stay, we were made to feel very welcome and look forward to returning later in the year. With so many extra touches. It was our wedding anniversary treat. We stayed in one of the lodges, which were great. Had breakfast in the club house. We booked our wedding anniversary dinner in kendals. This was a real treat. We got two glasses of prosecco on arrival. Which was excellent extra touch. Food great. I had the steak with the cafe de paris butter. Oh my god! Excellent! Our waiter Michel was so funny. He couldnt do anything better. The only negative, my wife went for manicure in the hotel spa, she wasnt happy at all. Thats not what you would expect from 5 star property. No doubt we will be back and have recommended this to many friends and family.
"Excellent Family Stay"

Stayed for a week in one of the Rose Garden Lodges.It helped that the weather was excellent.Don't play golf but did one of the golf walks which is much nicer than actually playing golf.Daily activities for the kids (7, 6 & 4) particularly golf, horse riding & gardening (which surprised me) & they loved the "Little Rascals" clubhouse.Very relaxed atmosphere.We dined in the Lady Helen twice-best meals I've ever had & staff are excellent. Was offered lift back to our lodge after very long night in the bar even though it was a mere 400 or so yards from the main house. Highly recommended.
"The best stay ever"
02/23/14 Dub1234a Dublin, Ireland
Myself and my husband wanted to treat ourselved and booked two nights In Mount Juliet. I saw lots of good reviews so i knew what kind of service i can expect. I wasnt wrong. I tried to book for one of my two night stay dinner in the Lady Helen. Unfortunately was fully booked on both nights, which was a huge dissapointment. I thought as a resident would have a chance to try Michelin Star food. So we booked the casual dining Kendals for both nights. What can I say, the food, the service was the best, to the highest standard. I had a chicken parfait to start and seafood for my main, my husband had pork. Food was delicious, just perfect. Service very attentive and friendly. Would definetely come back again to Mount Juliet and will recommend this place to all my friends. Thank you Mount Juliet and Kendals for the lovely stay.

What a wonderful retreat. The grounds kept us in awe. We enjoyed the horses at Bally Hinch stables we ate our breakfasts in the Lady Helen room, and the decor felt like a royal setting. Gorgeous architecture. Although we are not golfers we rode around the estate on bicycles. It was romantic and beautiful.
"Excellent hotel, second restaurant a real let down"
02/18/14 OffalyPk1973 Offaly
Stayed here for the 10k run weekend, and have been several times before. Overall the estate is superb, excellent facilities and staff. The Lady Helen Michelin star restaurant is one of the best in Ireland for quality and presentation, however the sister restaurant of Kendal's couldn't hold a candle to it. Main course of sirloin steak ordered medium rare was delivered quite rare, which for an estate of this quality is disappointing. After sending it back, a new steak was sent out this time overcooked. Also, the quality of the meat was very poor - very fatty and quite grizzly, I had to leave a portion of it as it was inedible. Desert was also a let down, however staff were attentive and courteous when I pointed all of the above out. Standards must improve, it took some gloss off an otherwise excellent hotel. I would not (possibly never) eat there again, but hotel is excellent, as are staff, facilities and estate.
We stayed in mount juliet on st valentines day and it was a wonderful experience. Mount juliet is set in beautiful kilkenny countryside and if you like country estates and old worlde charm, mount juliet is the place to go. We didn't stay in the main house instead we were in a lodge. It was spacious and luxurious. We ate in the lady helen restaurant and it was fabulous. Our waiter, i think Maurice was his name, was knowledgeable and pleasant. The food was indeed michelin star. The leisure centre was ok, little bit dated. Breakfast was a buffet style, perhaps a hotel of this standard might do better but food was good. Wish I could have stayed longer and will be back.
"Taste of Wednesday"
02/12/14 Ribno Tipperary
The reason we visited Mount Juliet was to experience the dining at The Lady Helen restaurant. The Wednesday night Tasting Menu is exceptional good value .. 8 courses for €55 which includes a glass of Prosecco. We also opted for the wine pairing for an additional €29. Service was excellent, Maurice was most helpful and knowledgable. My partner cannot eat meat but it was not a problem, the venison course being replaced by turbot. From start to finish it was a wonderful meal, the Michelin Star is well deserved. Looking forward to returning soon. We had a ground floor room in the main house with access to a small walled garden which would be most pleasant for a Summer visit. Wheelchair accessible bathroom. The only disappointment was the couch in our room which was stained and torn and in need of attention. My partner used the swimming pool which is in the Clubhouse and had the bonus of courtesy car down and back. Overall a great stay.
"Lady Helen Restaurant"

The food here is incredibly good. It has recently been awarded a Michelin star and it is richly deserved. The genius in the kitchen is matched by the superb front of house experience. Maitre D Maurice expertly leads a well drilled, knowledgeable and friendly team who give impeccable service. And the dinner price is little more than you would pay in any run of the mill place. Well worth a visit.
"Lady Helen Restaurant - Outstanding!"
02/05/14 ESP-Dublin Dublin, Ireland
I can't recommend the Lady Helen restaurant at Mount Juliet highly enough. Food was fab, service second-to-none, wine first class. Bar with open fires was the perfect location for pre/post dinner drink in January. Their Michelin Star is well deserved. Don't miss it!
