Mount Juliet Review

For many, the Jack Nicklaus–designed golf course—which has hosted the Irish Open on three occasions—is the main draw, but this lush 1,500-acre estate beside the beautiful River Nore offers so much more. You'll also find a spa, equestrian center, salmon and trout fishing, and excellent dining options at this elegant three-story Georgian mansion. The luxurious suites in the main house feature period decor, huge beds, and original fireplaces. There are additional guest rooms in a separate building close to the main house, as well as self-catering accommodations in luxe two-room lodges. The formal gardens and unspoiled woodlands beg exploration; add an array of dining options—from a casual bistro to the haute Lady Helen's Restaurant—and you may have trouble leaving the grounds.

    Mount Juliet Review

    Great location, expensive and overpriced. None of the 'Irish Craic'. Quiet if you are looking to relax. Not ideal for me on my own.
