Moments & Memories with the family at Mount Juliet Estate. Luxury moments are much closer than you think.

Posted 21/06/2018

From fishing to horse-riding, archery to falconry – there really is something to suit all the family at Mount Juliet Estate this summer. Retreat with the whole family to the laid-back luxury of the warm and welcoming Hunter’s Yard, Mount Juliet Estate set in the heart of The Estate just a stone’s throw away from the Manor House. In a bygone era when Mount Juliet Estate was a working farm of several thousand acres, a great many people were employed and housed on the Estate with Hunter’s Yard being used for horses and hay lofts, as well as lodgings for the grooms, coachmen and stable boys. Now, this elegantly transformed courtyard is the perfect place for families looking for a truly special summer holiday. 


As a family why not take advantage of the stunning surroundings and excellent facilities on your doorstep and try your hand at a spot of fishing along the River Nore or a spell of horse-riding in the equestrian centre or through the riding trails. Conveniently located just 20 minutes from Kilkenny city, bring the whole family on a fun-filled day trip to one of the near-by attractions. Make a pit-stop at Kilkenny Castle for a guided tour of the ancient building and learn all about its history and heritage over the last eight centuries. For the more adventurous families, Castlecomer Discovery Park is perfect for those looking for an adrenaline rush this summer. Set on 80 acres of stunning natural woodlands and lakes, families will take part in tree-top walking, zip-lining, canoeing and walking trails. If you are looking to go a little further afield, Mount Juliet Estate is only a 90-minute drive from both Cork and Dublin making it a perfect base for all types of family breaks.


Children of all ages are welcome at Mount Juliet Estate, with the kids club available throughout the day jam-packed with activities. The Mount Juliet Juniors Club (for 5-12 year-olds) will keep the little ones suitably entertained for hours with treasure hunts, tennis, rounders, pony club and cinema evenings and the older kids and adults can enjoy The Jinks Club where they can experience falconry, archery, fishing and equestrian.


While the little ones are being entertained, it’s time for the parents to enjoy some much-needed rest and relaxation. Saunter down to the spa for a little pampering and to experience the range of treatments available. From a fabulous facial to a sensuous hot stone massage, you are sure to leave Mount Juliet without a care in the world. Luxury breaks are much closer than you think at Mount Juliet Estate.
