Tell you what, sometimes nothing beats the times where you just take a day to mix things up a little and get away from the usual routine! And now that the summer holidays are upon us, it’s the perfect time to just book yourselves in at a gorgeous hotel and enjoy some proper me time! I’ve spotted this great Kilkenny hotel deal on Trivago that I think will be right up your street, so if you’re craving a little getaway this will be just the thing for you… :)
Kilkenny Hotel Deal
Nestled in acres of lush countryside, the Mount Juliet Hotel in Thomastown, Co. Kilkenny, is a gorgeous 4* hotel where relaxation and tranquillity is definitely at the forefront. The hotel itself is set in an imposing Georgian manor house with beautiful ivy on its walls, several cottages and even gatekeepers’ lodges. The gorgeous architecture and peaceful setting really does make everything just that little more special – and I think the top-notch reviews speak for themselves!
On-site, you’ll find everything you’ll need to keep both body and soul happy. The estate features an award-winning course which has hosted the likes of Tiger Woods, and if you’re a total beginner why not book yourself in for one of the classes on offer? Once you’ve finished your games, kick back with some refreshing drinks and tasty food at the newly-opened Clubhouse, which overlooks the sprawling course below. If that doesn’t really tickle your fancy, then fret not. How about a sumptuous spa experience, going horse riding, or even trying your hand at archery or falconry?
And of course, as you’d expect you’ve got some first-class dining options open to you. Treat yourselves to a little afternoon tea, kick back with some fine wine or whiskies at the Major’s Bar, or indulge in a meal at the Lady Helen Restaurant, awarded 3 AA Rosettes and a Michelin Star. Don’t mind if I do…
I’ve been looking around at dates during the summer and I managed to come across the cheapest rate at €189 a night from the 23rd – 24th July. Rates average out at around €249 in July to €219 in August, but it depends on the day of the week you stay. Weekends are slightly more expensive, but just play around with the dates until you find something that suits you! :)
