Four AA Rosettes for the Lady Helen at Mount Juliet Estate
Mount Juliet Estate is delighted to announce that the Lady Helen Restaurant has been awarded a coveted four AA Rosettes. As announced in their latest AA guide, the Lady Helen is one of only two properties to be awarded four AA Rosettes, and the only Irish restaurant to be awarded four AA Rosettes in this edition.
Four AA Rosettes are awarded to the top restaurants in the UK and Ireland, where the cooking demonstrates consistency, excellence, technical skill and innovation. There are very few restaurants awarded four AA Rosettes.
Mr. Mark Dunne General Manager of the Mount Juliet Estate shared, “We are thrilled to receive this prestigious recognition for the Lady Helen. Chef John Kelly and his team have created a dining experience that is particular to Kilkenny using only the best ingredients many of which are sourced locally. We are delighted that this attention to detail has been recognised and awarded.”
Chef John Kelly said, “We didn’t set out to win awards, but when we do it’s brilliant and it’s great for the team to see the hard work and innovation recognised. We are delighted to receive four AA Rosettes and really proud of this award.”
Commenting on the awards, AA Director of Consumer Affairs Conor Faughnan stated, “The team at the Lady Helen Restaurant truly do pull out all the stops to provide a memorable experience for anyone lucky enough to dine there. Our team of inspectors are far from easily impressed, and to achieve an award of 4 AA Rosettes requires not only incredible dedication by all those working in the kitchen, but a commitment to consistency in ensuring that every dish which leaves the kitchen meets the highest of standards.”

The magnificent 18th century walled resort overlooking the River Nore, is home to two exceptional 5 star properties, the 32-bedroom Manor House and 93-bedroom Hunter’s Yard Hotel.
