Stayed for two nights with rooms in the main house. Arrived early and went to the drawing room overlooking the river. Wonderful view. Late snack lunch which my companions enjoyed. I felt a Guiness was the better option.
Then to our rooms, more like junior suits. Huge beds, spacious sitting area and a small walled garden shared between the three ground floor rooms on our wing.
Dinner was one of the main reasons we chose Mount Juliet. The Lady Helen Restaurant has a Michelin Star, it probably deserves another one. Had the tasting menu. Beautiful food, perfectly cooked and perfectly presented. Great Scallops, wonderful Venison. No difficulty in serving something else for those who couldn't have a particular food.
A good nights sleep.
Breakfast was as good as one would wish. Hot food was cooked to order not the more common buffet. I had the fish of the day which turned out to be Turbot, delicious.
The grounds are extensive. Golf for those that do. I was more interested in the walks which are mapped out. The walk to the stud, on to the East gate, down to and along the river i thought very pleasant.
Dinner the second night was of the same high quality.
Problems. Just the one. A poor shower with a slow draining shower.
Cost. Two nights, two dinners, two breakfasts and alcohol of various types. About €450 per person.More
