About Lady Helen 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.

The staff were incredibly polite and helpful. The food was exquisite and the breads were light, delightful and scrumptious. We will be back again.

No big comment, but just surprised that we were offered still or sparkling water . . . To my surprise I then received a bill the next day for two bottles of water. Never even offered an option of tap water. Raise your price-fixe by a few dollars and give guests the water. I paid over 500 euro for an evening in your accommodations and restaurant, and you charge for water??

One of the best dining experiences I have had The food was fantastic, appropriately portioned, exquisitely prepared and served beautifully. The wine pairings were lovely and well worth the extra! The service was fantastic, the atmosphere in the restaurant wonderful and relaxed I would eat here again in an instance (though my bank balance might disagree!!) and would definitely recommend!!

Lovely evening working our way through the tasting menu. Enjoyed interactions with staff who looked after us so well - they know how to make guests feel valued without being over deferential.

We had a fantastic night away in Mount Juliet, with dinner in the Lady Helen restaurant. The Manor House was so relaxing to stay in. The staff were very attentive, helpful, and courteous. The house itself is very impressive with high ceilings and beautiful artwork and features throughout. Our room was fab, super spacious and comfortable. Our dinner was just such an indulgent treat, we opted for the wine pairings and enjoyed it all thoroughly. I requested a vegetarian tasting menu and was very well catered for. We went for lovely walks on the grounds, across the river to see the horses and foals, and also around the beautiful gardens with blankets of bluebells and daffodils everywhere. We'll definitely return for a visit again.

Great 7 course meal. Service slowed down at the end which lead to a longer meal than desired

We booked the afternoon tea as a treat but left disappointed. We paid €35 per person for the afternoon tea, which left us still hungry. My brother asked for another scone and was charged another €5.75.... for one scone. Given this is a 5 star hotel it was very disappointing indeed.
