Just back from 2 night stay away with family including a toddler and 5 yr old and could not rate hotel any higher from family friendly aspect. From our initial welcome by Tom the doorman, reception, to kids club girls and bar staff, to little things like milk & cookies left in room for kids at night, Lyrath have got... More

I visited Lyrath Estate in March of this year with three college friends for a girlie weekend away. What a gem we found! This place has it all- five minutes from beautiful Kilkenny City which is large enough to feel like a city but small enough that you can walk around it and enjoy it. We ate in the Thai... More

We spend one night here on our way to Wicklow mountains and Dublin. On a tour through Ireland we had the chance to compare different 4 and 5 star hotels and manor. This one lies in a nice surrounding and offers an impressive entrance hall. But the first thing we saw was a revolving door not working just as the... More

Loved the hotel. Everything about the place was a wonderful experience. The breakfast was the best! Would stay at this place if I ever visit Ireland again. The grounds were lovely. I found the place to be very relaxing, not a stuffy atmosphere.

Just back from a trip with husband and kids. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left we got the 5 star treatment. Food is top class, staff cant do enough for you, pricey but worth every cent.

Upgraded to a suite - and what s room it was! Everything about the hotel was fantastic... from the warm & friendly welcome by Tom, the Porter, to lovely grounds & amazing breakfast. 3 generations of family loved it. Within 10 mins of Kilkenny centre too. Would definitely visit again :)

Returned to kilkenny with my friends for a weekend break. A little pricey booking into the Lyrath but we deserved the treat! We were blessed with beautiful weather on arrival. Upon driving up the lyrath entrance you can tell you're entering lavishing grounds! Enjoyed the spa and the ladies there were amazing! The only fault I have with this hotel... More

Possibly the best level of service I have experienced. From check in to check out the staff were excellent. The sap on site is brilliant for both male and females and screams professional. The food is top class and I especially enjoyed the food in the Yindees restaurant( I love thai food). My first morning at breakfast I was greeted... More

We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel but for me the stay could have been spoilt because I left my jewellery purse behind. Thankfully one of the hotel staff found it and handed it in. Murali Dharan, the Executive Housekeeper was so efficient, reassuring me straight away that the purse had been found and returning it within a couple... More
