Each room at Mount Juliet is individually designed, in keeping with the concept of a private, family home. All rooms are also individually named, drawing inspiration from the history of the state. To compliment all of the services provided by the staff of the house, in the evening as you prepare for dinner, the beds are turned down, the lamps are lit and the drapes drawn.


About your stay:

The estate offers a variety of variety of exhilarating sporting opportunities. Guests can explore the estate on bicycles or on foot, or take a guided pony and trap. A visit to Ballylinch Stud farm, an integral part of estate life, will help to understand and perhaps share the age-old Irish love of horses.
