Nice hotel in fab setting but seems to be a bit faded. It is in Revceivership and staff are doing a wondeful job in the circumstances. The old rooms (suites) are majestic and both restaurants are really good.

Stayed here for a night on a long drive from Killarney en route to Dublin. Gorgeous estate, and really helpful staff and services. Grounds were well kept and had a mix of character and modernity. Breakfast buffet was spectacular, huge selection and all well prepared.

Stayed only one night at the Lyrath Estate Hotel. Our room was clean and a nice size. The location was close to the downtown area and easily accessible by cab. We had the nicest bartender who introduced us to lime cordicial for our vodka & water. Very delicious and wonderful treat.

My fiancée and I had a wonderful time staying at the Lyrath. The staff were polite and attentive. I was particularly impressed with the way it seemed each member of staff really enjoyed their jobs, and their enthusiasm and happy nature was catching! It was lovely to be recognised as more of a friend than a guest each evening by... More
