Mount Juliet

 

In a world of its own within 1500 walled acres near Thomstown in the southwest of Ireland, the Jack Nicklaus course at Mount Juliet is a centrepiece of one of the country's finest sporting centres.

Blessed with this unique setting, Nicklaus has enhanced Mother Nature to create a tough but fair test of golf, and one that is presented in excellent condition throughout the year.

A former venue for the Carroll's Irish Open, the layout is a first-rate examination of shot-making skills, particularly for those with the ammunition to take on the 7,100 yards from the back tees.

If you are a guest at the 18th-century manor you can also enjoy some of the finest salmon and trout fishing in Ireland, a luxurious health spa, tennis, clay-target shooting, and the extensive facilities of the equestrian centre. All of which should work up a suitable appetite for what is, without any shadow of doubt, the highlight of a stay at Mount Juliet - feasting like a king in the splendour of the Lady Helen Dining room in the main house.
