I wonderful welcoming reception with very keen and helpful Staff members. Stayed here on spec and what a find. There Rooms and food are excellent and the walks around the hotel are wonderful. One small thing though not a great idea to put in receivership on the receipts for all transactions. It would make you think about staying here again

Upon arrival we were made to feel very welcome, the reception staff were lovely and Tom the doorman was a charmer! The room was gorgeous for which I was very glad as it was quite pricey but definitely worth it, although a few more coffee sachets would have been nice. The setting is fabulous and as we had a room... More

Myself and my friends are just back from our second stay in The Lyrath. So that says it all. Hotel fab, Yindees Restuarant delicious (have eaten here on both occasions). Staff very helpful and friendly. Bar lovely. Hotel grounds are just amazing. I will definitely go back very soon.

Having spent just the one night in the Lyrath with two friends-we couldn't have stayed anywhere nicer or friendlier. We arrived late in the evening, however the restaurant kindly accomodated our late arrival. The residents bar proved a comfortably atmospheric experience and the spa was equally relaxing. However the talking point of the trip between us was the friendliness and... More

The Lyrath Estate is very picturesque, we were really looking forward to our stay here. Parking is a bit of a walk from the entrance so if you are carrying your luggage it could be a hike. They do have "set down" parking in front with a porter so no worries. Registration. I did not feel very welcome at all.... More

We just spent a week here recovering after our wedding with our little 10 month old boy. The hotel is beautiful, lovely old estate house to the front with a modern hotel attached catering for everyone. Great facilities, the pool, the kiddies pool, warm and not over chlorinated, a creche area where you supervise your own little ones, and amazing... More

Spent one night here in April and really enjoyed the entire experience. From check in to Tom the concierge, to the standard of the room, to the evening meal - I really couldn't fault it. We asked for a bucket of ice to be sent up, it arrived in less than 5 minutes. Our room was wonderful. We stayed in... More
