About Mount Juliet

Built on a love story, we could not have found a more charming location to bring our family and friends together in Ireland than the Mount Juliet Estate. With a passion for travel and a fondness for a cozy B&B (Logan and I dream about starting our own one day) this sprawling Estate dates back to the 18th century and is hailed as both an enchanting bed-and-breakfast and luxurious resort, all in one breathtaking setting.

Named by the Earl of Carrick after his wife Juliet, the Estate is nestled in southeast Ireland just 19 kilometers outside the medieval city of Kilkenny (home of the famous Irish brew "Smithwick's"). Steeped in a rich heritage, the Estate features a grand 250-year-old Georgian Manor set atop a hill overlooking the River Nore and is surrounded by over 1,500 acres of beautiful land.

Rated one of the top 20 resorts in Europe by Condé Nast Traveler and one of Europe's oldest surviving walled estates, Mount Juliet is host to a Jack Nicklaus Championship golf course, state of the art Equestrian Centre, lush gardens, and the Lady Helen Michelin star restaurant. We are confident Mount Juliet will provide the perfect backdrop for an unforgettable Rutherford wedding tale.
