About Manor House at Mount Juliet Estate

Lady Helen McCalmont, the previous owner of Mount Juliet, was a superb hostess, who oversaw the gardens and kitchens with a kindly but firm hand. We believe she would have been delighted to know we have maintained her standards, and that the restaurant bearing her name also bears a Michelin Star, along with three AA Rosettes.

Our internationally-themed menu consists 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, racing its way south to Inistioge.

We very much enjoyed our first wonderful stay at Mount Juliet, and dinner in the Lady Helen. Food was super, staff were very welcoming and helpful and our room was a delight. We will definitely be back.

An amazing night in the Lady Helen Parlour with a group of 21 diners. Exceptional service, courteous staff nothing was too much trouble in setting up the room. Fabulous location. Menu was perfect selected by the Michelin Chef - must have been difficult to serve this number to a Michelin standard. It was Michelin and beyond. Food presentation, flavours,attention to details was exceptional. Amuse-bouche stunning. THE ELFS

The 7 course tasting menu and paired wines was delightful - the Espresso Martini with Pre Dessert was a wow factor !

The sheer luxury and comfort of Mount Juliet exceeded our high expectations. The décor and the facilities are second to none. We ate in the Lady Helen Restaurant, and it was a fantastic experience. This said, the staff were what made the experience so exceptional. They were all relaxed friendly and genuine. They were helpful but not over bearing and there was no pretention. Alan Valley was particularly accommodating and friendly.

Without a doubt the best place we stayed in Ireland. Such a beautifully presented estate. It’s luxurious and relaxing. The food is amazingly delicious. The Staff were amazing and so happy to help. Loved everything about our two night stay. We were reluctant to leave.

Fantastic dining experience. The setting is elegant. The food is well presented and delicious, with some truly memorable dishes. If I had to pick at something, the staff were without doubt attentive and well-trained, but they didn’t seem to display much of a sense of warmth or welcome.

Absolutely fabulous so far. From the minute we arrived. We treated to a wonderful room. With so many elegant touches. Food is top notch, with beautiful afternoon tea and an evening meal that was one of the best I have had. A special mention for the staff. All are friendly and up for a brief relaxed conversation.

Our waitress was fantastic and made our experience. We had our 5 month old baby with us and she made sure to help us in every way possible. Food coffees and drinks were excellent also.
