Booked a deluxe family room at this hotel very last minute, upon check in we had been upgraded to a room with a balcony on the 4th Floor. The room was gorgeous with a huge balcony with a table and rocking chairs. The room was spotless and the maids were extremely friendly! Dinner in the La Pearla restaurant was just... More

Lyrath Estate is a beautiful hotel nicely situated away from the hustle and bustle of Kilkenny Town. The Hotel was very busy with weddings on both days we stayed here. The staff were kept busy and all went well. There could have been extra reception staff as having to queue to check in is not acceptable at 5* resort. The... More

The hotel is beautiful. It is in lovely grounds and very relaxing. The staff are very attentive and friendly. The rooms are fine, I often expect more than you get in a bedroom of a five star hotel. Beds were okay but not the luxury I have experienced in the Heritage or Dromoland, which I now expect when you treat... More

Highly recommend Lyrath Estate if you are going to be in Kilkenny. The grounds are really beautiful. There are acres and acres to explore. There are bikes you can use or you can take a stroll. They also have a gym facility and two good restaurants. Of real note was the service. We had a room. In the old section... More

We returned to the Lyrath for a family stay, we loved it. As it's summertime, and there are daily activities held, the kids had a ball. We had stayed before and had some issues but after contacting the hotel, and dealing with Hugh, the Guest Services Manager all issues had been addressed and the service provided was excellent, we are...

We stayed at the Lyrath for 2 nights this week. Check in very efficient and friendly. Bar food lovely, very generous portions. Room very comfortable. Food very tasty in Yindees restaurant. Small gripe here, instead of placing a jug of water on the table, manager came with bottled water at €4.90 a bottle. Expensive. X bar lovely, live music Friday... More

Just back from a stay in the Lyrath and we loved every second of it. From the outset the experience was positive, check in was hassle free and the staff were warm and friendly. Our room was large, bright and very comfortable. The spa is excellent and we loved the indoor/ outdoor hydrotherapy pool. The heath club pool was also... More

We stayed at The Lyrath last May for my friend's hen and I have to say it was 5 star! As soon as you walk into the reception you are welcomed very warmly by a very friendly man. The reception staff were friendly and efficient in organising your check in. The room we were in was comfortable and nicely decorated.... More

I have stayed at the Lyrath Estate on the 19th of July 2014. This is my second time staying here. It's truly an amazing place. The sense of pure relaxation you get from the minute you enter the estate and drive up to the house. The staff are very friendly and are very helpful. Our room was beautiful 437 spacious... More
