Historical Traveller Reviews of Mount Juliet Conrad Hotel
more than disappointedfrom quettz
food was good and bar staff did their best to understand english.
manager was very good, perhaps swiss?
weather was excellent which made up for a lot.walk around the stud was good,(you're not allowed around the golf course bizarrely).
can agree with the comments about staff at the golf shop.
mount juliet is supposed to be a premier golf course, on a sunny summer weekend the course was empty nearly all the time.
will not return, and could not possibly recommend it to anyone.
Do not stay here. You WILL be dissapointed if you are used to servicefrom Heywood100
On arrival at 17.00 our room was not ready. At 18.30 it was after being promised it would only take 5 mins. We were offered coffee numerous times that never arrived.
The room was damp, tiny and with no attention to detail. It was impossible to lock and one of the chambermaids said it was like that for a while.
Food was OK at best – still hungry after starter and main course - but restaurant was cold and draughty. I had my jacket over my knees.
The junior staff were OK, but the arrogant management really lacked.
E.g. a full staff in the breakfast room but still I heard one guy say he had waited 45 mins for a pot of ?????? tea. Another lady at another table said IF her breakfast arrived it could be sent to her room as she had to prepare for a meeting.
A total overpriced joke. Do not go here. You will be disappointed if you are at all used to even reasonable 3 or 4 star service.
Wonderful Irish Manor Housefrom elkp
Way too expensivefrom BOLTGUY
What a peaceful, luxurious haven!!from A TripAdvisor Member
The service from all the staff was very high. My husband and friend asked directions to the pool room. Before they had got there the table had been set up, lights on, cues cueed and drinks waiting.! The boys played a round of golf on Saturday afternoon and loved it, they raved about the course - equivalent to St Andrews in Scotland they thought. We ate in Hunters Yard the first night and the House the following night. Both meals were of a very high standard but the meal in Mount Juliet House was exceptionally good. I have to admit that we did a lot of sitting around in the lovely comfortable lounges and the front lawn drinking wine and lager, but we also did archery, clay pigeon shooting and croquet. Our "outdoor pursuits" guide was great and let the girls have a few goes clay pigeon shooting even though it was only the boys partaking.
It was the Irish bank holiday weekend while we were at Mount Juliet and I was quite surprised at how few guests were around - we used the swimming pool with only 1 other family there - so when I asked at reception about their occupancy, I was shocked to learn that they were absolutley full for the whole weekend. It is only places with such high standards that can make their guests believe they have the run of the house even while being full !
I cannot rate Mount Juliet high enough. It was so very relaxing, pampering and beautiful. It fully deserves its reputation.
Night stay in a fabulous locationfrom A TripAdvisor Member
My wife and I attended a wedding in Mount Juliet Estate last saturday. The Hotel is an old stately home converted into a Hotel, the rooms are amazing, big, well decorated and beds to die for.
The Hotel is situated in the middle of a world famous golf course, and fabulous country side, great for going for romantic walks.
The service in the Hotel was excellent, we attended a drinks reception and wedding meal, food and service was 5 star.
My only negative comment about the hotel is how breakfast was served the next morning, instead of being served breakfast as expected, it was a buffet style self service.
I would recommend Mount Juliet for anyone looking for a restfull break.
Peaceful, expensive Mount Julietfrom A TripAdvisor Member
The staff were friendly enough, friendlier if they happened to be groundskeepers, bellhops or chambermaids. (These people were locals and very nice indeed). Dining was quite pretentious, with mediocre food, very high prices, and reasonably good service by the French or Belge wait staff. (No one informed us about the other restaurant on the property that might have been more to our liking and less pricey). Our first morning we ate breakfast, which was really not good. We were informed that it came with our room. The 2nd day, we decided to eat there, only because it was included, and of course, we were now told it wasn't included. It was very expensive and possibly the worst breakfast we ate in Ireland.
That being said, it still did not dim the pleasure of staying at such a grand estate. We wanted to tour around, and we investigated possibilities on our own. We chose Metaphorplus1@eircom.net
and the owner spent 12 hours showing us the very best of Ireland. He was so kind, entertaining and very reasonably priced.This was certainly the high point of this overall good experience. My friend and I would be happy to return another time.
Golf at Mount Juliet?? No thanks!from A TripAdvisor Member
Christmas Heavenfrom A TripAdvisor Member
10 of us went away for Christmas, the first Christmas we have not spent at home so I was hesitant to go feeling it would not be the same. Everything was magnificient, we arrived Christmas eve to mulled wine and minced pies in front of the fire, the kids were taken for a pony ride and swim as a grop so they could all get to know one another. We then had a fantastic christmas eve dinner with Christmas carolers ( even in santa hats). On Christmas Day santa arrived for the kids, Christmas lunch was faboulous and we had 1500 acres of the grounds to walk off the turkey. On Christmas night there was a buffet with prawns, salmon etc etc I just could not eat any more. That was followed by a band until 2am. The next day we played golf, the course was packed so it was a little slow but the course is world class. The kids went on a horse treck down by the river and were well taken care of. On St Stephens night there was a group dinner, champagne reception, 5 course dinner with wine followed by dancing and there were parting gifts in our room when we got back.
In general I could not find a fault the service was very good, professional and friendly. The Food was great, the rooms in Mount Juliet House are the best I have come accross in Ireland and our family also had a lodge which has so much space and are very comfortable. The only negative was on St Stephens Day the pool and leisure center were very busy to the point it was not comfortable. All in all i can not wait to go back.
ll be back....from A TripAdvisor Member
We stayed in a Rose Garden suite and it was magnificent. summed up as extraordinarily spacious and properly equipped. 2 full sized bedrooms with separate baths, living room, dining area, kitchen and amenities like a drying room in the hall for wet belongings. Lovely paned windows looking out on the 18 hole putting course from every room. A large closet in the entry way for golf clubs and shoes and even CCTV upstairs to see who is ringing at the door.
Service was very good except in the bar in Hunters Lodge. Looked like not enough help after 10:00 PM.
Golf course is first rate. Played the American Express World Championship there. The staff was always helpful and courteous. They even drove us from place to place when asked. I couldn't have been more pleased with my choice.
Top Local Tips for Thomastown
Inistogue I don't know if I have spelled it right but it is the picture perfect Irish country village with nice coffee shops and pubs worth a vist.
enjoy the sheep not a lot to do out here, especially if you don't have a car. Enjoy the sheep, and the bucolic setting. Thomastown has a grocery and an off licence. The wait staff is very willing to give you a bucket of ice for your room. But once your at Mount Juliet stay and enjoy all the estate has to offer, the spa services, golf, and equestrisn center are top notch. Also bicycles are availabe to borrow too. Vist the Balllyhinch stud which is part of the estate.
One do not miss attraction in area Jerpoint Abbey is a hauntingly beautiful ruin with medieval and pre-medieval parts intact. Gentleman who did our tour was incredibly articulate and informative. Don't miss it if you are in area. Rock of Cashel, on the other hand, is undergoing major restoration--make sure all parts are open before going.
