'Took a midweek family break in the hotel with our five year old. The price was reasonable, and the facilities sounded excellent. Overall, we were not disappointed. The room was extremely comfortable and the staff was very pleasant to deal with. We would highly recommend Yindees restaurant - the maitre d’ being extremely accommodating and, of course, the food excellent.... More

we spend a family vacation in Ireland and made a tour around the country. We stayed for 2 nights at the Lyrath Hotel, and enjoyed every moment of it. The hotel is designed for families with a lot of local attractions for adults and for kids. In particular we were impressed by the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff, which... More

I have just returned from a weekend away with my husband, celebrating our pearl wedding anniversary. The treatment and attention to detail we got was send to none, to say we got a piece of heaven is an understatement. We dined both nights in the hotels' 2 restaurants, and it was faultless. We will certainly be returing again in the... More

Every meal was delicious and afternoon tea was just a wonderful experience. The hotel is very family friendly, lots to do for younger children. I will definitely be back and would thoroughly recommend this hotel. Best hotel I have... More

I'd like to extend a HUGE thank you to Emma Jane and Alan at the Lyrath Estate for an amazing experience at the hotel. It's nice to know that real 5 Star service is still alive and well!! At short notice, and on a Sunday evening, Emma Jane arranged a private dining room and customized birthday cake for a party... More
