Our Review of The Majors Bar at Mount Juliet Estate

Mount Juliet House was built by The 1st Earl of Carrick in 1757 for his new wife Juliana, fondly known as Juliet. Step inside the front door of this magnificent country house and step into history. This former Stately Home of the Earls of Carrick turned luxury Country House hotel stands on 1500 magnificent acres of land either side of the River Nore. An elegant and graceful residence which has The Major’s Bar as a welcoming lounge for hotel guests and visitors.

The Major’s Bar is cosy and comfortable. Named after Major Dermot McCalmont of the McCalmont Family who took residence here till the late 1980’s and were the last private owners to use the house as a home before it became a hotel in 1989. Major McCalmont’s wife Lady Helen McCalmont gives her name to the Michelin starred Lady Helen Restaurant at the house.

Major McCalmont has his own namesake at The Major’s Bar, a place we think he would have loved! Period architecture abounds, as all the glories of this grand Manor House have been painstakingly restored and renovated. The central focal point of The Major’s Bar is a gorgeous marble fireplace which always has a blazing fire in the hearth. This is the place to sink into a comfy chair and enjoy some light refreshments or your favourite tipple through the day.

In the mornings, The Major’s Bar serves the Mount Juliet Single or Double Scone with clotted cream and a full selection of classic teas, herbal or fruit infusions, Barista coffees and Liqueur Coffees. Afternoon Tea is served between 1pm-5pm, with booking required. The Major’s Afternoon Tea, as it is known, is in the classic style, with tiered stands displaying an array of savoury bites, finger sandwiches and homemade pastries. Add a glass of Pimms, a Gin &Tonic or glass of Prosecco or Champagne if you want to splash out!

In the evenings, The Major’s Bar is the perfect spot for a night cap after a satisfying day enjoying many of the outdoor activities and walks on the estate. What a wonderful way to end your day at a memorable and stunning house which has true love, history and great sporting heritage at its heart.
