Mount Juliet House is set on a large estate, which offers private fishing on 2.5 miles of the middle to lower reaches of the River Nore. Mount Juliet Estate offers fishing of the highest quality, just a short stroll away from the Manor House.
There is a fishing room on site in the Manor House for your convenience i.e. for storage and drying of fishing equipment. Mount Juliet Estate can also provide the necessary equipment on site if needed.
The River Nore has a reputation for producing large salmon every year, with fish over the magic 20lb mark not uncommon.
There are twelve named pools on the estate’s stretch of river, each offering a different challenge and opportunity for your enjoyment.
For many years the estate has been regarded as one of the finest fishing houses of Ireland.
Available from 17th March to 30th September on a catch and release basis. A fishing license is required and this can be obtained from Mount Juliet Estate.
The Estate can offer some of the best, if not the best, wild brown trout fishing. This stretch of the River Nore offers an abundance of beautifully spotted brown trout which are stunning to behold and great fish to fight.
Fishing methods, from traditional wet flies and spiders, to dry fly, to modern nymph techniques all produce wonderful results for the free rising fish that call this lovely part of the river home.
In recent years a small amount of sea trout in the 1lb class have begun to reappear on the estate waters, which augurs well for the future. There are also rainbow trout available in some of the lakes spread throughout the grounds.
Available from January to October on a catch and release basis.
There is also fishing in a series of lakes on the estate for Carp Rudd and Roach, which have been stocked by Mount Juliet Estate.
The hotel can arrange for Gillies or Guides on a full or half day basis, which can be of great assistance on your first visit to this stunning part of Ireland. Riverside lunches can be arranged, the chef's will gladly make your picnic basket to your requirements.
Fishing lessons can also be arranged.
