Five star success: award elevates Mount Juliet to summit of hospitality excellence
By COLIN BARTLEY
MOUNT Juliet Estate has been awarded the highest accolade possible by the national body promoting Irish tourism.
The five-star rating award by Fáilte Ireland, the national tourism agency, has elevated the luxury hotel and golf club as a prime destination for national and international tourists.
And it adds to an impressive list of accolades that the 18th century 500-acre walled estate on the banks of the River Nore has received.
The 5-star rating by Fáilte Ireland reflects the exceptional standards maintained by the estate. Mount Juliet received the rating based not just on the hotel, but on the overall experience a visitor can expect.
This encompasses all aspects of the estate, including the original Manor House, the new 93-bedroom Hunter’s Yard hotel, the Michelin-starred restaurant – the Lady Helen, the Jack Nicklaus designed signature championship golf and a whole host of activities, including fishing, falconry and a state-of-the-art equestrian centre.
Mark Dunne, the newly-appointed general manager of Mount Juliet Estate, said: “We are extremely proud to have obtained a five-star classification from Fáilte Ireland. This recognises the highest standards of excellence within the hospitality industry and it is a testament to the work of the entire team and exceptional level of service that Mount Juliet Estate delivers on a daily basis.”
