An overnight stay is not long enough to fully assess this luxury golf resort outside Kilkenny but we much enjoyed our brief visit.
Mount Juliet’s multiple facilities are distributed over a large area and moving between them might be unpleasant in bad weather. However, our 'clubhouse' room was beside our choice of restaurant - Kendals Brasserie, junior to the Michelin-starred Lady Helen, a five minute walk away in the former manor house.
The general style is contemporary country house elegance, understated and without excess or bling. Our bottom-of-the-range room was adequately sized and furnished but its shower-only bathroom was rather small.
Dinner in Kendals was a pleasant experience and we thought it good value. The food was excellent but the cheerful waiters/waitresses were overworked, leading to delays in service. The clientele was eclectic and the dress style decidedly informal.
Breakfast is a somewhat awkward-to-use but otherwise good and well-stocked buffet.
All the staff we met were professional and pleasant. WiFi is free throughout the complex and easy to access.
Overall, an enjoyable experience and we would have liked to stay longer.
