We would like to thank all the staff at Lyrath Estate Hotel Kilkenny for a wonderful stay recently. The facilities are wonderful. The staff couldn't be more helpful. In particular we would like to mention Josephine the restaurant supervisor and Darragh Harnedy. My son said to me on our second morning that Josephine was the nicest lady we had ever... More

A friend and I recently stayed at the Lyrath in Kilkenny and we had a very nice time. The staff were very helpful and pleasant. We ate in Yindees, which was absolutely delicious. We had breakfast delivered to the room, which was also very nice indeed. We went out in Kilkenny town afterwards (which is about five minutes in a... More

Firstly,the good points. SOME staff were lovely,in particular the girl who checked us in and out and also the head receptionist who I addresses... More

I have just returned from a one night stay at Lyrath and I have to say I am very disappointed. We booked a standard double room as a treat for my birthday. I had expected that the standard room in a five star hotel would be still be somewhat more upmarket than lower star hotels. However do not be fooled,... More

Spent two great nights in this hotel in a regular double room. There wasn't anything overly spectacular about the room or the decor but we were in a ground level room so we had a little patio and double doors leading out on to the beautiful grounds which was a nice touch. The shower was lovely though - I love... More

I think this is an excellent option for staying in Kilkenny. Its definitely upmarket, relaxing and luxurious, and you are unlikely to have gangs of drunken hens and stags. Not quite as good as other 5 star hotels I have stayed at, but its a very good 4 star in my opinion. I think its under NAMA control. The upside... More

Just back from a one night stay at this beautiful 5 star hotel with my wife and two children(4 &1). From the moment we arrived all the staff made us feel welcome & were very friendly. We were upgraded to an executive room which had loads of space for rollaway bed & cot for the kids. We had lunch in... More
