Christmas at Mount Juliet Estate

It’s been a tough year.

Despite all the uncertainty, however, Mount Juliet Estate has come up with the best way to ensure a memorable celebration this Christmas. Why? Just think…days spent by a fire you don’t have to light, tucking into food you don’t have to cook (or wash-up after), sleeping in a bed you don’t have to make. What more could you ask for?

Whether you’re considering a Christmas Day free from pots and pans or want to start the New Year on a fresh start, or simply wish to gift yourself a stress-free few days before or after all the virtual parties and gatherings, Mount Juliet Estate makes for the perfect Christmas getaway. A three-night festive stay here includes delicious freshly baked mince pies, hot port and even some Christmas carols on arrival. Enjoy a Michelin star Christmas Eve feast in the Lady Helen restaurant, wake up to an indulgent Champagne breakfast on Christmas day, traditional Christmas lunch in the Lady Helen restaurant with a delicious supper and live festive music that night. On St. Stephen's Day, guests will be served a leisurely breakfast in Manor House. Later that day, guests will be invited to partake in the tradition of Afternoon Tea before or after enjoying the Estate's country pursuits or indulge in some self-care at the Health and Wellness Centre. The package at the Kilkenny five-star starts at €949 per person sharing. Visit mountjuliet.ie for more bookings and more information.

Festive Afternoon Tea

Afternoon tea is one of the most enjoyable dining experiences that you can take part in, especially around Christmas. Lounging in a gorgeous room, sipping uniquely flavoured tea while enjoying deliciously small bites is a great way to spend an afternoon. Not to mention it makes for an excellent present. This festive season, Christmas Afternoon Tea will be served at Mount Juliet Estate overlooking the beautiful winter scenery of the River Nore and the Ballylinch Stud. As for what will be served, expect festive favourites such as gingerbread men, mince pies as well as gâteau opera, cinnamon and orange madeleines, mini apple and raspberry tarts and, of course, delicious finger sandwiches and savouries, accompanied by a cranberry drink with mulled wine foam. Prices start from €40 per person, click here for more info.
