History

The Earl of Carrick named the Mount Juliet Estate after his wife Juliet, and she would have been proud. The Estate consists of over 1500 acres of lush riverfront pastureland and now incorporates one of the classiest small hotels in the world. The property also accommodates a horse stud, golf course, residential properties, gardens and trails.

The golf course was designed by Jack Nicklaus and opened in 1991

The stud farm and equestrian centre are world class.

 

Putting Course

Mount Juliet- garden putting courseMount Juliet- garden putting course

One of the most fun and perhaps unique things to do at Mount Juliet is to play on the putting course set in the gardens of Mount Juliet House. The full 18 hole grass putting green is outrageously good fun with holes surrounded by water. It is both beautiful and challenging..

 

Golf Course

 

Ten miles north of Waterford, Jack Nicklaus has fashioned an American parkland type course in the lush rolling terrain at The Mount Juliet Estate. The golf course winds through mature trees, around and over lakes, and is strategically bunkered as you would expect from a Nicklaus design. With multiple tees, the course can cater for all standards of player and has hosted a number of professional events over the years including 3 Irish Opens, an American Express Championship, and Shell's Wonderful World of Golf.

 

Notable holes inlcude:

 

- the par 3 third hole, an all water carry to an almost island green in a gorgeous setting

Mount Juliet- approach to the 4th greenMount Juliet- approach to the 4th green

- hole 10 is a short thinking man's par 5 with a large tree central to the approach- do you go left or right?

- hole 13 is a brutish longer par 4 which requires a strong tee shot over a hill and a long approach over water

Mt Juliet-  hole 13Mt Juliet- hole 13

- hole 18 is a challenging long par 4 finishing hole with a heavily bunkered green and water all the way down the left hand side of the hole

 

Mount Juliet is one of the great places to stay and play golf. The golf course is lovely and has been voted the best inland course in Ireland. Whilst it has some lovely holes, the course overall does not perhaps reach great heights. Nevertheless it has a beautiful setting, a nice golf course, and is an absolutely world class place to stay
