My second stay at this hotel was certainly a more relaxing one as we were there for a friend's wedding. The meal, as well as the service, was excellent considering they were catering for such a big number and breakfast was superb with a wide variety of continental as well as irish options. Lovely bathroom with a good size bath... More

Myself and my friend stayed here at the end of August, it was fantastic our room was massive and I don't think I've ever slept in a more comfortable bed before, we had a delicious meal in the Asian restaurant, we found all the staff we met to be lovely.

Hi, I stayed here for one Saturday night away with my GF. Before check in we had asked for a nice room as it was an anniversary. We were promised chocolates and wine in the room on arrival. This did not happen unfortunately. Check in was efficient, friendly and fast. The guy playing the piano in the lobby was really... More

We were upgraded to a Executive Room (a lovely large room), unfortunately the Executive Room had only one double bed in it, where we had booked a twin room (2 beds). Reception did organise a child's bed to be put into the room as the 2nd bed, but a bit small for an adult and took away from the look... More

A luxury retreat in the lush countryside outside the city of Kilkenny, Ireland. Excellent service, excellent food with the comfort and serenity of peace and quiet. Enjoy the surrounding areas filled with history, night life, shopping or being pampered in their spa. What a great place to relax and renew or take in as many historic sites as possible during...

The hotel grounds and interior were wonderful and welcoming. The food was good but we expected it to match the estate hotel feeling which it didnt. Overall consensus with friends was that the serving staff were reserved or limiting in what they could do for us. Food portions were small even though we love and are used to good food.

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
