Went on a one night break here with my sister and I have to say it was the most disappointing hotel break I have had in years. The room itself was very standard which was fine but the toliet was so dark and small. We went to the bar for a glass of wine and I have to say the... More

I booked a mid-week trip to treat my mother, whom I put in an executive suite and I stayed in a deluxe bedroom, and we enjoyed every aspect of our stay. The grounds of Lyrath estate are beautiful as you drive up to reception and the lobby has an unusual look to it and a laid-back atmosphere with a lovely... More

Myself and my mam stayed in the lyrath for one night on a voucher we received. Upon booking, we were told we must stay within 30days of the booking in order to use the voucher, that didn't bother us, however a little inconvenient. They requested we send the voucher number by email, which we did the following day, a few... More

I spent a night in this lovely hotel last weekend. The spacious bar and foyer (with a nice warm fire set for Winter) and the excellent choice of food and drink made for a very enjoyable stay. The Thai restaurant just above reception was particularly good. The room itself was spacious with some nice touches like the marble finishings in... More

We are here at the moment & it is like a playground for 1-4 year olds! They are running riot & we have moved from bar to reception, don't get me wrong I have no problem with children here but they are allowed run wild!

Just came back from a weekend away at the Lyrath Estate Hotel with my sister. We had decided to treat ourselves to a little break away before the Christmas madness starts and we couldn't have picked a better spot. But for me, the staff especially stood out. All the staff I came into contact with could not have been more... More

Stayed here one night mid-week in December. Great value - €102 for two persons sharing, including breakfast. And what a breakfast.... plenty of everything, full Irish, fresh fruit juices, excellent homemade bread and really top class helpful staff. This is a five star establishment and deservedly so. We would have given the hotel the full 5 rating except- the swimming... More
