About Lady Helen at Mount Juliet Estate

Lady Helen McCalmont, the previous owner of Mount Juliet, was a superb hostess, who oversaw the gardens and kitchens with a kindly but firm hand. We believe she would have been delighted to know we have maintained her standards, and that the restaurant bearing her name also bears a Michelin Star, along with three AA Rosettes.

Our internationally-themed menu consists of dishes made using local ingredients, including many from our own kitchen garden, herb garden and farm. The atmosphere of opulence within the Lady Helen Restaurant complements the pastoral views out over the pastures to the River Nore, racing its way south to Inistioge.

We had a really wonderful evening at the Lady Helen. The staff were very friendly and professional. The food was amazing. We decided to choose the wine pairing and it was a good choice. The sommelier was very knowledgeable and friendly and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Lovely music and atmosphere also.We would recommend the restaurant highly.

Mount Juliet is the perfect setting for a relaxing afternoon visit and the Afternoon Tea was perfect in every way! My family enjoyed this pre-Christmas treat and will return again next year.

Dinner in the Michelin restaurant was outstanding service excellent however to be charged €12 for 2 bottles of water when you are paying €100 pp is a bit shameful. Also some other prices such as €9.50 for a scone scandalous. Atmosphere was lovely and enjoyed my stay but I would say there are other 5 star places that offer the same experience without such a heavy price tag such as Castlemartyr Resort and the Europe

The ambiance was nice, but the servers appeared unfamiliar with what was on the afternoon tea menu & mixed up our two different teas on delivery. They were also unfamiliar with what was what when the food was delivered and appeared put out that we asked them to talk us through the different food. The food was tasty on arrival and there was plenty to go around.

We felt that the meal wasn’t very inventive or inspiring. We’ve had much better meals from restaurants not even close to Michelin. The wine pairing with the scallop was excellent and the pigeon was tasty, however nothing was memorable. Given the expense of the 9 course taster and wine pairing we would have expected more... We would love for our minds to be swayed, but with the hefty price tag I can’t see us every paying Helen a second visit.

Staff- amazing, friendly and efficient.Premises a real wow factor. We had the 9 course tasting menu - never tasted anything quite as good as the 1st serving - mackerel cone and also most impressive were the petite fours. Other courses also had wow factor with the exception of the rabbit- not wonderful. This did not take from the overall wonderful dining experience. Thank you.

The Service felt a bit awkward. Coming to close - speaking above the food.... a bit more distance would have been better.... Being there as the first guests of the evening we were standing around... waiting for someone to show up. Felt lost.
