3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Coming from Dublin, access to this high-quality property is extremely convenient : you glide down the N7, take Exit 11 onto the splendid M9, proceed to Exit 8, and two roundabouts later you're just there. We were impressed by our surroundings from the moment we entered the driveway - Lyrath is a beautifully restored old house, with elaborate modern wings... More

I had heard mixed reviews about the Lyrath from others so was slightly skeptical prior to check in. I like my 5 star hotels and know that it's the little things that make places stand out. The Lyrath fell massively short and certainly didn't stand out by any means. I was put off immediately by the crowds in reception when... More

The bedroom in the hotel was so cold, we had to go to bed to keep warm. We complained to reception. A young gentle and came to the room and couldn't sort out the problem. He then offered us an alternative room. On asking him what the tempretature was in alternate room he said it was also 17 degrees. We... More

Family friends stayed here while visiting Kilkenny we met them for dinner at the hotel where we had a lovely meal our friends informed us how one of the receptionists went above and beyond to help them find us as they lost our address so glad she did as we had a great time. Sorry I cannot remember her name... More

Had a lovely stay in this hotel. The meal was fabulous. The staff were amazing. So friendly. Our waiter was brilliant. I cannot say enough good things about lyrath estate. The only bad thing was that I was only there one night. Will definitely be back!

We had our wedding reception at this hotel and it was absolutely fantastic. The staff were so professional and service was second to none. Brilliant location for photos and the food was excellent. We were so well looked after from the day of booking to the day of checkout. Defiantly recommend. A1 service

We stayed in the Lyrath last weekend - 2 adults and 2 children. It was coming up to St Patricks Day and it was also Mother's Day. We checked in around 12.45 but our room wasn't ready. No problem - we would sit in the bar and relax with a coffee. No - not possible. The bar was booked solid... More

So when you travel as much as we do the one thing you want on your night away is a good nights sleep. The room we stayed in was amazing. The hotel, grounds, bar and staff were all fabulous. So imagine how disappointed we were when we had a great night out with friends, lovely dinner and then got into... More

I wish that we had stayed at home rather than waste our hard earned money going to this place. It is in receivership, you will see that prominently placed on till receipts. We went there for a weekend with two B&B and one evening meal. Food in Tuppers bar was adequate, not special but not bad for bar food. Breakfast... More
